Temperature Blanket 2016

Temperature Blanket 2016 update

The end of 2016 is so close and I realized I have not posted a separate update for the Temperature blanket in a few months.

As you can see , not many HOT days. Nothing over 100 degrees. But It was quite humid on some days. The orange squares are the 90s .

Thankfully by September it started to cool off. Almost hoodie weather 🙂

I marked Halloween on the last square, as you can see. I have a heart for Valentines day and a shamrock for St Patrick’s day attached . I need to add a few more.

The November squares are being made this week and will be crocheted to  the other squares this month. I am a little behind but making the squares is a bigger part than sewing them together , I think.

I just can wait for this blanket to be done. 🙂 So I can choose the colors and design for the 2017 temperature blanket.

81 – 90            Papaya

71 – 80            Rouge

YOP6 week 15

Hello again and welcome to week 15.

I FINALLY finished the Year of the Monkey C2C block. Why didn’t anyone tell me that Aran and eggshell are the same color?!?!?! I went to Walmart yesterday and noticed a skein that looked a lot like the color I needed. I almost didn’t by it. I am glad I did though.

I made another cowl…. I Love this cowl. The stitch is called 3 step stitch. My work looks different from the video but I know I did it correct. Maybe its the loom.

I have to work on my bind offs. But I like it 🙂

Something for my favorite season….. Falling Pumpkins Wall hanging.   I added the curls and my own leaf. How I did them are on my project page.

YOP5 week 47

Not much to show for this week. I am so over these projects. Why did I pick them? I had this feeling at the end of last year as well. I think I am just too excited for year 6. My list is ready to go 🙂

But no matter how I feel I have to push through and finish my projects.

I plan to remove all projects from my queue on Ravelry and only have projects that are on my year 6 list.  I will share more of my evil plan later.. 😀  Also all my post will be here on wordpress.

Now on to the crochet pretties.
