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 🙂



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…..

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).


About half way done. Up next is the Love Rocket 🙂


A Year of Projects

Yop 6 week 11

This week I worked on a few projects….

I finished the Cruella c2c panel.I need to fix a few blocks. But overall I like her 🙂


I decided to work on Jon’s shark tail sack.img_3675

And a few other projects …

The purple strip is going to be a curtain for this “window ” behind our couch that separates the kitchen and the living room  . I hate this wall but we are renters so we cant rip it out. I will be making 3 strips. one for the top and 2 for the sides.

And the blue is going to be a cowl.. I just need to find some cute buttons.

And I went yarn shopping yesterday!! I love where my man works sometimes… its not a yarn shop . Its called Ocean state Job Lot .( hes a receiver, almost a manager)  Its like Big Lots.  They sell yarn and they finally have some worth buying.. this wont last long but its a good start.


Next weekend is the garlic festival in Mystic CT and we’re going… not for the garlic but just to look around and get some grilled cheeses at the Bleu Squid in the Mystic Village. Their food is sooooooo good.

A Year of Projects

I had the honor of making a newborn Happy Dance Snoopy hat and bootie set for a customer in AZ this week.



Not much to show for the Princess vs Villains CAL this week..

Here is Cruella DeVille .. half way done.. the decreases are fun 😛 Cruella isn’t an official Villain from the CAL. she was made by someone in the facebook group.


Hopefully I will finish Cruella and Aurora today and start Belle and Ariel. New P and V were posted this week… Jasmine and Jafar and Pocahontas and Ratcliffe . I will be making Jasmine and Pocahontas .
