Hi friends, I hope you all had a nice weekend. Our area was dumped with 26 inches of SNOW!! Way too snow much for me. We spent most of Sunday shoveling all of the snow. Unfortunately, I don't think this snow will be melting anytime soon. It was a great time for me to catch up on a little bit of crocheting.
Well, back in October I started working on this new crochet blanket and then I stopped. I didn't really have time or the ambition to continue working on it, as I was so busy during the holidays. My plan is to have this blanket made and finished for our annual Fall/Christmas Sale that we will have at my church for this fall.
I worked a little more on this blanket back in November but not too much progress had been made. What I have promised myself is that I will work on the blanket a little bit each day or night throughout the winter. Each colored section is 5 rows and I did about 15 rows the other day.
I love crocheting during the evening when the weather gets cold and I'm watching TV. It's an easy way for me to be creative, keep busy, and it's a great stress reliever.
The yarn I'm using was given to me to use by the person that runs our crochet group at my church. I just love the colors of the yarn, purple, green, and multi color, and I think this color combo will create a nice looking blanket.
Crochet Hook - US size H
Green yarn is by Red Heart - Frosty Green
Purple yarn is by Loops & Threads - Lavender
Multi yarn is by Loops & Threads - Fresh Lilac
For the pattern, I found it on Pinterest HERE. I made my chain of 90, and then I followed the rest of the directions for the pattern.
Do you have any winter projects that you are working on right now?
