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 🙂

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 🙂
Does anyone remember the Emoji Blanket I was working on? I have 6 emojis done… and I was deciding on what the other 3 will be…. I made the Poo emoji this past week.
And I finished this moss and front post stitch pony tail hat. ❤
WIPS for the week are this stockinette stitch shawl… it grew a little bit from last week.
And I started another shawl… its called Skewed . its a free pattern on ravelry.
for the last time…. my superhero YOP banner…..
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. ❤
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).
About half way done. Up next is the Love Rocket 🙂
