My Scrappy Happy Blanket – pt 2

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next WIP I want to talk about is what I called My Scrappy Happy Blanket – pt 2. I started this project on 06/01 of this year. I’m not really using a pattern and making it up as I go along. I’m using a 4.25mm (or a G) Hook to create 11 round Granny Squares that I’ll be using the Join As You Go method to connect them all.

This project is being hosted in my Catching Fireflies bag by Bags by Awesome Granny. Her shop can be found here. (as Of Monday, the bag’s in the shop! It’s called “Summer Nights Blue.” Yay!!!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This project will probably take me up until the end of the year (if not longer), and will contain SOOO many fingering weight scraps leftover from pairs of socks I’ve made myself. I haven’t had the ball bands on it for FOREVER, so I’ll try to update you with colors on the scraps when I know where they came from. I have scraps of my Sock Blank socks, and a few of the shawls I finished this year too. Can’t remember the names of them. I’m sorry.

The blanket isn’t all that much to look at right now, as I’m working on the squares. I haven’t even connected any of the squares yet. I have too few of them. Maybe when I have several more rows worth of squares, then I’ll feel motivated to start connecting them. Here is what I have so far…

Update 9/7:

I’ve finished 4 squares for this blanket since the last time I updated this post.

I have also used the Join As You Go method to put together two rows. I still have a few rows of squares left to add, but I wanted to stop and show you what I’ve been working on.

Update 12/21:

I have finished all of the squares for this blanket. I’ve realized that I need to mattress seam it together, as I’m running out of the JAYG yarn I had chosen. This is why it’s stalled out as much as it has. I’ll get to it eventually, I suppose…

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Hats Off To #31

Hello again everyone!!! For my next FO, I have 2 hats…. I called this project “ITA Baby Hats.”

I used the “Basic Baby Hat” by Heather Tucker, and I made the 12 month size for both. I used Universal Yarns, Uptown DK in the “Tea Party” and “Peach Smoothie” colorways, as well as a US 6 (4.0mm) 16 inch Marblz circs.

I LOVE the way that both of these knit up. Both hat are SOOO wee!!! What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
