Ok….so I got a little off track with my blogging. I am a work in progress-what can I say! It is very difficult to get yourself into the habit of sitting down and writing on a regular basis. It seems especially for me since I don’t consider myself much of a writer to begin with so this part of being creative is extremely difficult. With that said let’s get on with the fun!
I have finished the second granny square from “The Granny Square Book” by Margaret Hubert.
I’m not real sure how I feel about this square. By itself it really is not that impressive but I feel like several of these put together would look really lovely. Maybe I’ll make a few more and see what they look like attached.
I also got some FreshStitches animals made up! I love, love the patterns that Stacey Trock designs they are all so cute and easy to follow. You can find her patterns at http://www.freshstitches.com go grab one and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed! First I have a slug, because her Ravelry group is doing a CAL with this pattern.
How cute is he?! I need a few more in a variety of colors!
Then my oldest grandson wanted a family of owls so I had to make a Mom and two kids to go with the Daddy owl he already has.
And of course the middle grandson needed something from Nana. His favorite color is green so he got a really green Cliff the Brontosaurus.
This pattern was super fun to make!
And lastly…it was Groundhog Day this weekend so we need a Phil….
He did not see his shadow so Spring will be here soon! Yay!!
I also made a coat for one of my babies. It doesn’t get cold enough here to need one very often but I think she would wear it all the time. She really seems to enjoy it!
Can you see the smile on her face! (Smile or exasperation?)
All of the projects I have completed, except the granny square, were made with Red Heart yarn. I love the durability of their yarn. It can be washed and dried so much with no negative results. The granny square was made with Vanna’s Choice which is fabulously soft to crochet with. I have not used it enough to know how well it holds up to washing and drying but I will be using it a good bit more so we will find out!
What is your favorite yarn to work with and how does it hold up over time?
May your day be filled with blessings!
