Crochet A Longs, Good Ideas, Sharing my life

25 in five : Yarn addition

I recently saw a reading challenge called #25infive on instagram. The participants read what they can for 25 hours in 5 days.

My yarn obsessed brain got to thinking about how I can use this with my yarn balls. I still have a ton. Here is what I was thinking , use 25 balls of yarn , any size, any weight, in 5 days. Make whatever I want.

Its Friday so I will take the weekend to look through my stash and pick my 25 and post again on monday, day 1.

This could be a fun monthly crochet/knit/loom a long ๐Ÿ™‚

This one came out so cute. But unlike the others I did not watch a Friends related movie to keep me motivated. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Next up is either Central Perk or Phoebe’s Guitar . I am doing something different with Phoebe’s guitar though. I remember an episode where she had a blue one. I found a clip of it where Ross scares her at Central Perk .

Next update will be next Thursday.

The One with Smelly Cat

I started this one on Monday and finished on Tuesday. I zipped right through it. I even sewed the ends in as I went. ๐Ÿ™‚

When ever Phoebe sang smelly cat on the show I sang along ..lol ๐Ÿ™‚ I even had nightmares about it.. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ย  ย The episode where she teachesย Chrissie Hynde the song is amazing.

The one with smelly cat..finished

And here is the Peephole Frame .. so glad this is done. The ends were a b*tch to weave in. way to many.

This picture is before I weaved the ends in.

I am not sure what the next square will be.ย  I have a few graphs printed out.

The One with the Peephole Frame

I decided to put down the banner block to work on a few smaller blocks for this CAL. The banner is so big and I am not liking how its coming out. I may or may not re do it.

So on to the peephole!

Block name: The One with the Peephole Frame

Movie I watched: 3000 to Graceland ( Courtney Cox)

2 of my loves.. Kevin Costner and Christian Slater โค

I am only at the half way point of this block. Its sorta a pain in the butt with all the color changes. But I like how its coming out. I am using up alot of the small lemon colored yarn scraps I have from taking apart the 2016 temperature blanket I attempted.

I will most likely finish this by tomorrow. So the next block will be either The One with Smelly Cat or I’ll just suck it up and finish The One with the Banner.

Next update will be next Thursday ๐Ÿ™‚

Crochet A Longs, Sophie's Universe Blanket, WIPS

Sophie’s Universe Blanket

It finally happened. After a few years after the release I have the desire to make the Sophie’s Universe Blanket.

I am sorta a fan of big projects. I like the projects I can make in separate pieces and sew together. This is not one of those big projects.

Its does take a lot of yarn and time. Which I have both of.

I took some time to choose my colors. I really love one of the sample blankets on Dedri Uys’s websiteย ย ( link opens a new window). Which is her first photo on her ravelry page. The turquoise is so dominant . It really catches the eye. ( its one of my favorite colors).

I changed out the canary for Caron’s Cream, but basically kept the rest in the same color family. I think I will be changing a few colors as I go . I want to make this a mostly purple blanket. Another color that sticks out to me are the pinks. I am not a fan of pink. So I want to work in the purples in the big areas and switch them with the pinks for the smaller areas.

Here is my Sophie’s journey so far…
