A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs, WIPS

YOP7 week 4

I was going to do the A year of Projects posts every other week so I wasn’t in a rush to get something started or finished to show….. But I have to show off this amazing FO !!!!

Its called Mermaid’s Cowl. I really love this stitch. I used a g size hook instead of the H the pattern called for. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft: Pink Camo. I used all but a little ball of this yarn. Its also not as wide as the pattern. It covers the neck( my mannequin head has a longer neck than I do..lol) .

And for my WIP… Another crochet along by Chaos and Chop Suey.  This one is for Grease. One of my all time favorite movies.  Week one is Pink Ladies. I am at the decrease 🙂 I will finish the other half over the next few days so I do not fall behind 🙂

A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs

YOP6 Week 52

Goodbye year 6….

Before year 6 of A Year of Projects is gone for good, ( so depressing) I needed to get a few things finished.

The holiday flag that has been laying around since year 6 started is now done. I’ve been looking at it in my WIPS basket and couldn’t bring myself to finish it the way it was , so I ripped off the tree and voila’ … all done.. and perfect 🙂

I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if  I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket.  We’ll see.

Another c2c panel that needed to be finished is Aurora. Lack of gold yarn stopped me from finishing this….when I got more it went to the Luke’s Diner panel then the  MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel 🙂

Crochet A Longs, Crochet stuff, FRIENDS CAL

FRIENDS themed blanket CAL part 1

This CAL is from chaos and chop suey here on wordpress. Ive never been so happy to make anything in my life!! 🙂 I loved the show and I am rewatching it on Netflix while making this blanket. I will be done with show way before I am done with the blanket 😦

The pattern on ravelry is $7 . and soooooo worth it Angela put A LOT of work into these blocks and appliques. Harper Baby Shop  made themed hooks for this CAL and I HAD to get one! My hook is a 4.25 and the hook Angela used is a 4.50 but I rarely use that size hook so I wanted a hook that I will use alot.  This hook is so cool.

My first block is The One with the Banner….

I just started the decrease. This is going to be the longest c2c piece Ive done 🙂 My next one will either be Phoebe’s guitar or the peephole .

I also made some appliques of my own..  The E is for Emma, banana is for Marcel, goldfish is for Eddie and the mustache is for Richard. ❤

Crochet A Longs

Gilmore Girls CAL: My Journey,part 1

Another C2C CAL has caught my attention. I know I haven’t finished the Princess and Villains C2C CAL yet, but this one is sooo much more important!! Its the GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!

I wasn’t a fan of the show when it aired in 2000 but since hearing about the revival I wanted to check it out to see what the hype was about. I finished all 7 seasons in about 2 months thanks to Netflix and watched A Year in the Life in 2 nights. ( and have since re watched winter and spring) . I can see why so many people love that show.

I dont remember how I found the C2C CAL by Chaos & Chop Suey But I am glad I did. Angela designed amazing squares .

After much thinking , my first squares are going to be Luke’s diner sign and the  Love Rocket  Logan gave Rory. ( my 2 fav guys).
