Enjoy my Textured Circles blanket pattern!

I used two strands of worsted acrylic to make this blanket and a size 10mm hook – yarn and hook are optional but will greatly affect final size. Mine is 16 motifs and 68″ square.

Note: This square is a slight modification of the Circle of Friends Square by Priscilla Hewitt (Ravelry).

Celtic Lace Join

Wow, guys, I think i’m going to have to make this blanket! I saw the photo of this blanket all joined up on mooglyblog.com, and gasped because it’s so beautiful! I’ve always hated joining granny square (or any squares for that matter) because the sewing takes forever, but this? TOTALLY worth it! (and it looks quick and fancy, too!)

I originally made this join for my 13th Textured Circles piece, but I ended up re-working that to attain my final measurement.

This join can be used for any type square! Enjoy!

A Whale of a Cowl

Whalecowledited

I’m very pleased to announce that “A Whale of A Cowl” Is now live on Ravelry, and available for download!

{Link to Ravelry Pattern Page}

I’m quite pleased with this one – it comes in sizes all the way from the little 23″ cowl you see pictured, to a whopping 68″

“whale of a cowl” hehe. Get it? It’s the sister pattern to “A Whale of a Scarf,” which I published a couple years ago.

It’s been fully test knit, and i’m loving making it myself – I’ve already made two, and will likely be making more soon! I made the second to smallest version in about 1 day, so it really is a quick project!

I was going to post pictures of my WIPs, but my camera decided to die while I was outside taking a million pictures of my little guy watching a lawn mower. You’ll see pictures. It’s adorable. I couldn’t help myself.

Here’s the WIP status right now: (remember my handy dandy spreadsheet? I can’t find it on my computer! ahhhh!)

  • Giraffe Mittens: Need to weave in ends on one mitten, and photograph the pair (see aforementioned camera issue)
  • Galilee Slippers & Juliet Mitts for a friend: Not yet started. Supposed to give them to her Saturday, 10/11. Right.
  • Urban Jungle Slouchy for mom’s b-day: b-day is tomorrow, “party” on sunday. I’ve started the brim of the hat.
  • TARDIS blanket: supposed to cast on this week. Likely not happening yet.
  • Design project. That’s all i’m telling you.
  • Second Design project. Also that’s all i’m telling you. Secrets will be unveiled in the future.. {mysterious music}
  • Silk and Lace drawstring bag: side 1 totally complete. Side 2 75% complete.. then I ran out of thread. More is on order.
  • Cotton Flowery Cruise Purse: Outside totally done. Flowers in the works. Need to sew in lining.

Whew. This is only like 10% of what i’m planning on making/working on, but it’ll do for now!
