At the moment I have several things on the go:
|bobble crochet blanket|
Ever since I saw one of these patterns, I wanted to try it. I decided to use the recycled yarn I purchased from my local thrift shop. Someone washes and rolls previously used yarn and bags it for sale.
Each bag is priced at about $1 or $1.50. I cannot be sure of the content but I can tell if I like the feel of it. I started my blanket but got bogged down when I couldn't decide if I liked the way the colors blended.
So.........on to the next thing.
Grey and Pink seemed like a good idea especially after finding this grey and pink flannel( I will use it for a double sided blanket). I am planning to make squares of several different stitches with the flower motif on the single crochet ones. I don't have a specific pattern so we will see. I like the mystery and possibilities of not knowing for sure how it will look when finished. There are a lot of good patterns for squares here. After sampling the flower idea I think the pink is not quite right so will probably look for a better shade of yarn.
I saw a cute fleece blanket and a whole new collection started in my head.
pattern is here for the starting square of the blanket (although I did find it hard to follow and if you don't have any crochet experience I think it would be difficult) and after row ten I am improvising and keeping it interesting for myself. If anyone is interested in a pattern I will post a picture when I am finished and try and write one.
In the end all these projects will get finished, it is just a question of how long it will take. Hopefully nothing else will distract me. Every distraction leads to a whole new collection of things (in my mind).
At the moment I don't know if the baby is a boy or girl so am hoping the owl collection will do for either. I will have to think on it.
I really enjoy looking at what others are crafting and am finding I like sharing my projects as well. What are you making?
