Sometime I feel I need to post only when I have groundbreaking stuff to share. I don’t. I’m going to blame the month of March for my lax blogging. No reason. I just don’t want to take responsibility for being absent.
I stash busted a C2C baby blanket for my spouse’s niece. Who is due in August. So I have made 1 baby project off my list. And used 4 balls of stash yarn. I will be putting out a pattern for this blanket. I colored in my pattern on 10sq/in graph paper, and that was TEDIOUS. I’m going to do an excel sheet, which will take less than half the time. This way I can easily include visual options for making it BIGGER! Yardage will be easy to estimate.
I’ve been trying to get this done, and honestly, I feel it took FOREVER. It took me almost 2 days to get the whole border done. The blanket is about 37×40″ finished. I used a size I/5.5mm hook, not a tiny, tedious endeavour.
I powered through with tea. I brewed up a whole pot of my favorite STASH tea: Double Bergamot Earl Grey. The tea cups were a birthday gift from my bestie/brother from another mother. I bring one of the set out when I miss him most. I’ve been missing him; after 2 years, I still have a difficult time accepting losing him.
I worked a little bit on the Kyyyyyle blanket. But I’m not in love with how its turning out, so I don’t really want to work on it. I should like it. It SHOULD look good. It is still a dissapointment. I’ve been working on a pair of striped stash socks. No pictures. Just a boring toe-up sock.
My stash balls used for 2021 is currently 28. I’m well on track to make my 100 for calendar year 2021.
I’m still working on other outstanding patterns. I don’t want to start any new design projects until I get some of my current projects published. I have quite a few in end-stage production. Hopefully the kids will start hybrid school next month and I’ll have 2 days a week to focus on my projects. I’m at my most productive and creative in the morning- when they need me the most for virtual schooling.
I hope just getting a blog out will be my push to keep up! Love ya!
