Weekly Dose of Crafts!

For more crafty goodness be sure to stop over at WIP Wednesday! And this Friday Tami is hosting a Flash Your Stash where we can share pictures of our yarn stash!

So the later part of last week I started working more with those Granny Squares to make this blanket from Attic24. Here are a bunch of middles I made!


And here are the Granny Squares made from the middles I showed last week!


Then this week I went back to the Granny Stripe Blanket, also from Attic24! It's coming along nicely! I've almost used up my first 16 skeins so I purchased a whole new set of yarn that should take me through the rest of the blanket (hopefully!) I was waiting for the yarn to go on sale and this week 99% of it did!


I also bought some other yarn at a few local yarn stores. (Save me!) The yarn in the top row is for two different slipper patterns that I'm hoping to try sometime in the near future. I had to order some more yarn for one of the patterns though. My first special order!

And the yarn on the bottom row was just so soft and little and cute I just needed it. Not really sure what kind of project I can or should make with it. Ideas?


I did try a Granny Square with the cute little skeins though. And since it's a DK weight it made a sweet little tiny baby Granny Square. I added in one of the other Granny Squares just so you could see how tiny it is! It's about 2.5 inches across! I used a 3.5mm hook for that.


And finally I bought a few more books. The one on the left from Half Price Book and the one on the right from Joann's.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Looking good! I've always wanted to learn how to crochet blanket squares. Another thing for my to-do list! Can't wait to see the finished blankets.

  2. I love when you do the craft part of your blog.. I also crochet but I have no clue how to do the granny squares and things like that.. I tried one day but I don't know what all the crocheting lingo means and it just confused me. Right now I am crocheting a blanket but it is just the regular way.. I love your blankets because they have zig zags and different patterns. I really wish I could do that.. Your work is beautiful!

  7. Holy crap, you've been busy! You so have me wanting to make granny squares. What yarn are you using? Vanna's?

    I love all of the vibrant colors. I've realized that a lot of my yarn is natural colors/earth tones, etc. I need to rectify that soon! LOL

    Thanks for the shout-out to WIPW and Flash your stash!

  12. You are a crafting machine! I know I ouldn't ever do anything like this. I can needlepoint (because there are actualy physical paper instructions, haha) but relying on myself. Not so much.

    They look beautiful.
