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!

Granny Skull

This morning as I was scrolling through my Facebook I stumbled upon a Halloween granny square pattern!  I had to give it a try and I’m happy with the results.  I did have to do a few modifications, like adding an extra tooth.   For some reason it just didn’t look right when I went with the pattern, but it was probably my error.  Also, it’s supposed to have three rounds of granny square around the outside but I ran out of orange yarn a few stitches from the end…don’t you hate that?

Here’s a link to the pattern over at Crochet Nirvana!
