MIA

Oh my gosh I’ve been neglecting my blog.  I don’t know why, I guess like just got kinda busy.  No good excuse really.  I haven’t stopped crocheting though!

I’m part of a granny square swap group on Facebook which is a lot of fun.  I recently purchased three skeins of Ice Magic Light yarn in three different colors because I can finally get it here in the US without paying a ton for shipping!

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I just love it.  It’s really soft a squishy too, although as you start to work with it it feels a bit scratchy, not bad though.

So, remember I mentioned that swap group?  Since I didn’t purchase enough of any one color to really make anything I used all three to make granny squares for my group.  In all I managed to make 64 squares that I sent out today.  Since I’m not really doing anything for Christmas this year I figure that’s my gift to 64 almost complete strangers.  Hopefully everyone likes their squares.

Check out my dining room table (in horrible need of a refinishing I know) completely filled with squares!

I don’t think my iPhone camera catches the colors in their complete glory, but it’s close.  So vibrant and beautiful.

In case you’re wondering where I purchased my Ice yarn from, it’s from https://www.texasyarnfarm.com She also has the fabulous Stylecraft yarns here in the US too.

Happy Hooking!

It’s Done! Lacy Round Ripple Blanket

I’ve finally finished the Lacy Round Ripple Blanket!

I’m so happy with how it’s turned out.  The yarn self-stripes beautifully, even though they aren’t full stripes all the way around I really like how the colors contrast and join in different places.

Three balls of Lion Brand BabySoft yarn in the color Circus ended up making this 44 inches point to point which should be just perfect for a baby size.

I can’t take credit for the design or the idea.  Louise Gallagher has a Facebook page called Loobys Loops and she comes up with some wonderful designs and color combinations.  There isn’t anything she does that isn’t wonderfully beautiful.
