Lovely Squares

Hello again everyone! The last FO of 2019 was 32 yellow squares and 18 black squares for a new Granny Square blanket. This is a blanket I started for a surprise Recipient and their SO (Significant Other). I’m calling the project “I Can Hear The Bells.”

Here are the rows I connected in December. What do you think of my progress?

This means I have a total of 48,274.1 yards for the year. Quite awesome, huh?  Either way, I’ll be back for an FO parade in 2020!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

My Blanket Statement

Hello again everyone! FO #76 for 2019 was what I called “December 2019 Blanket Squares.”

I’m just doing granny squares on a size I (eye) Hook. Here’s the final layout. What do you think?

I still have to connect all the squares and finish up the border. This is how the blanket will sit for a bit, as I have other things I need to finish first…

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Casting On #75

Hello again everyone! FO #75 for 2019 was a project that I called “‘XMas Cast On’ Socks.”

I used the “Vanilla is the New Black” pattern by Anneh Fletcher and Must Stash Yarn & Fiber Sport Sock in the “Dark Side EVP.” I really love these socks. I think I’ve worn them at least once a week since I finished them. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#73’s Keen

Hey everyone! So sorry it’s been almost 3 months since I came by and updated my blog. Suffice to say, it’s been a busy few months. I’m going to kick off the last few FO’s of 2019 with my “December 2019 DVD Socks.”

I used the “You’re A Mean One” colorway from Desert Vista Dyeworks (DVD). I used the “Vanilla Is The New Black” pattern by Anneh Fletcher. I REALLY love the way this pattern and yarn go together. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Squares, Squares, Everywhere…

Hello again everyone. The 72nd thing that I finished, is part of a larger FO that will happen later. I’m calling this blanket “All Squared Up.”

I plan on using Caron Simply Soft Stripes in the “Grape Purple” and “Rosewood.” I’m sure there will be other colorways, but I’ll mention them as I finish each square. My plan is to crochet 6 round squares and connect them in rows of 10 squares each. I pretty anticipate this project to take me a bit, as I plan on making each square as a palate cleanser between my other projects. These are all 16 squares I made in November and during the days of Thanksgiving. I LOVE the way they are coming out. What do you think?

 

Thank you for sticking with me as I show off all of the projects I finished since the last time I came by. Obviously, there were a lot. Hopefully, I’ll be back with more soon.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
