Quick Update on Tetris Blanket

I have just a quick few notes on the next blanket I’m working on.  I have a few pieces off a Tetris Game-Board that I have been slowly working on.  It’s taking me some time to complete.  What you’re seeing below will be updated every time I have a few pieces completed.  You will see it supersede any other posts I may make until the project is done.  I have started to think that if I report what kind of progress I’ve been making, then the person who’s paying me to do this blanket can get a glimpse into the project as a whole.  If you feel like you’ve see this post before, I’m sure you have.  Just scroll down to see the last thing I’ve completed on it.

Here Is The Game-Board I’m working on creating with all these pieces:

Here is how the pieces look laid out so far.

Just have the larger black pieces and the grey boarder pieces to make.  Then I’ll be sewing them all up together.  I hope this will be a good week to finish the remainder of the pieces.  Wish me luck!  🙂


Update 4/30:

All the pieces are now complete.  Just starting to stitch them all together.  Hopefully Mario will leave the pieces alone and not try to bat them off the counter while I’m working on them…  There’s no guarantee, though.  Here is what each black piece looks like.  Just be aware that the pieces aren’t necessarily in order of how they are laid out…:

And the Edge Pieces:

The first two are the Grey Bottom pieces.  The third is the Darker Grey Side pieces.

I’ll have to block these out severely before attaching them to the blanket.  Right now, they look a bit… curly… to attach to the blanket properly… 😦  If you see, I had to pull it apart so you can see the stitches…


I HAD wanted to be done with the blanket today, instead of just starting to seam them together today, but other things caught my attention.  If you know me, you know that I get distracted by new pretties pretty easily.  I have to say a big “I’m sorry this has been taking too long!” and “I’m sorry I’ve been bad at keeping this updated!” to the friend who I have been working on this project for.  I’m just grateful for your patience.  There may be something a bit extra for you in the package, once I finally get it sent off….  I’ll e-mail you when I’m sending it off, don’t worry.  😉 – Silver –

…All Wrapped Up In A Bow

Hello everyone.  Sorry it’s taken me so long to come by and post the results.  I was hoping someone was thinking they can be late with their comments for my contest, but no dice.  It’s depressing to see that NO ONE had tried to guess, here, on FB, and on Twitter.

As I mentioned in the last post, I gave the answers to what each project was.

I was told by my loving husband AFTER THE FACT that maybe my contest really wasn’t as easy as I thought it was.  Or something about it being difficult to see what I was asking of you based on each title.  I suppose I could have said which project fell into each category.  What do you think?  Did I make the contest too hard?  Please let me know.


So, the contest has officially come to a close as of this moment.  Here are the real answers.  I’ll be announcing the winner as soon as I have gotten in touch with the individuals.  Hope everyone did well!  🙂

My 10 Favorite Project Titles of all Time:

  1. The Power of Three Times Three – Bacon Style
    1. This was actually a cowl that I created using multiples of 3. 3 of a ribbed pattern on each edge, and multiples of three for the middle stockinette section. DSC07185
  2. It’s ALL about that Treble!
    1. This was actually 1 of 2 washcloths that I made for my brother this past Christmas. It features a very prominent part of both of our music careers, the Treble Clef. I happened to be listening to Meghan Trainor ‘s “All About that Base” and there was a line in there (“no treble”) that got my attention while I was thinking of names for this project. The pattern is called “Treble Clef Knit Dishcloth” by Lisa Millan. Here’s what it ended up looking like:DSC06970
  3. I’ve killed it. Oh! Everything I touch gets ruined”
    1. Plain and simple. Charlie Brown and his infamous tree from the Christmas special that airs every year. I wanted to grab a quote from that classic cartoon to represent this Project Title. What do you think? Did it come out awesome, or what?  DSC06868
  4. I want Candy
    1. This one got it’s name simply from the colorway I used on this hat. It was Candy Print. Isn’t it… sweet?DSC05047
  5. Meow
    1. A cat hat I made for myself for Halloween on year. I’ve since made several others to give to children’s charities. For my first dabbling in something other than a simple hat, I think it came out pretty awesome!DSC03971
  6. I always wanted to make a mudpie!
    1. This one was also is based on the colorway I chose for this hat. It is the Mud Pie colorway.DSC05745
  7. Chicka Cherry Cola Hat
    1. The colorway I chose was “Cherry Cola Print.” This project title was based on that, as well as the song “Cherry Cola” by Savage Garden.DSC05329
  8. Smooth Criminal
    1. This one was another hybrid of song title (you know the one I’m talking about…) and the Smoothie colorway I used for the hat. It is a song that you can’t help singing, right?DSC05747
  9. Be The Cure
    1. This simple washcloth created by Lisa Millan has the words “Be The Cure” on it. This particular example, I made with a gradient pink yarn that when I purchased the skeins, some of the money went to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.Be The CureA - Pink
  10. Fangs For The Introduction!
    1. This is another pattern written by the talented Lisa Millan called “Fangs Knit Dishcloth.” I made this in the Pumpkin colorway, around the time we were rolling out our first Halloween Line for Silver’s Knitted Treats.Fangs - Orange


I hoped you liked these projects as much as I liked working on them.  I’ll be back soon with the winners’ announcement!  🙂 -Silver-
