A Year of Projects

YOP8 wk 3



I hope you all had a great week. ❀

Again my week had been consumed of reading and very little crocheting. I finished another kawaii cuddler. I might add legs.


As I was taking these pictures it was slightly raining. Its been a bit of a gloomy day.

Up next is Frida’s Flowers blanket.

I am making this blanket again. The colors I was using for the other ( that I turned into a table runner, see that here) , I wasn’t feeling . So take 2 here we go.

Colors so far are Bright Orchid, Aran and Rouge. Half hexagons are done. For part 2 I am using Paradise and Papaya.

Part 1, half hexes
part 1 and 2

I am skipping to part 6 so I can make the blanket from the inside out. I am not sure what colors I should use for the flower… could you help be decide ? πŸ™‚

The only difference is round 3 and 6. the left I used Papaya and the right I used Lavender.

pt 6


Book recommendation for the week : The Light We Lost.

A Year of Projects Year 8

Whoa! ( in Joey Lawrence’s voice ❀ )

This is the year….

THIS IS THE YEAR I make something with all those patterns I bought!!!!!

How many years have I said that though? The list keeps getting longer. (current count:218.. Ive made 28. ) I HAVE to make something with them. I wish I could return a few. Why did I buy thisΒ  was muttered alot when I was going through the list on ravelry.

My FO for the week is this adorable Catus Kawaii Cuddler. This is the cutest thing I have ever made!!


my WIP are called Snappy Slippers by Snappy tots. I ‘m not sure which I like more.. with the cuff or without.


Ive been reading so much that crocheting has been on the way back burner.Β  I know I have to make equal amount of time for both my loves.

Book recommendation of the week: The Woman in the Window.

This crazy cute banner above was made by LeftyCrafter on ravelry. ❀

A Year of Projects

YOP7 week 43

I need to get back to A year of Projects. I think its the cause of my depression 😦

ugh.. if it was only that simple.

Ive been making stuff with yarn. Not a whole lot of completed projects to show…

from left to right… Boyfriend hat, Embossed Hexagon, Spiral flower .

All are half finished. And all are part of my stash slim down. Patterns are easy and well written. The embossing is new to me and I want to make a few more hexes and then make a bag. I am not sure what I will do with the flower. Add it to a hat ?Β  And the boyfriend hat is getting donated.

For my FO’s..

A Milkshake Kawaii Cuddler by 3amgracedesigns . I also made the Television Kawaii Cuddler, i just forgot to take a picture of it.Β  And a shark mug cozy, cabled crown beanie and Animal Crackers bunny hat.


Updates on the FRIENDS blanket, Grease blanket and Sophie’s Universe will be this week plus a sneak peak of a project I am restarting.
