Sophie’s Universe

Wow!  I guess I’ve been so busy crocheting secret surprises that I haven’t been posting anything to my blog lately.  Trust me, I’m still busy with my hook and yarn…lots of lovely yarn 🙂

Here’s my most recent HUGE finish!  So proud of this as it’s been the largest and most challenging thing I’ve completed to date.  The bad part is that it makes “easy” projects just no fun to do.

Here she is, Sophie!

She was a 20 week labor of love created in Red Heart Super Saver in the color Aran.  It took approximately 15 skeins of yarn to complete (or 5460 yards).

This was a gift for a good friend of mine who came all the way from Kentucky to pick it up.  I think she was at least a little surprised!


Here’s a link to the Ravelry page with tons of projects for color ideas here.  And the link to Dedri Ury’s page Look At What I Made.  She designed Sophie’s Universe and graciously made an extensive pattern including detailed photos that made this project good even for beginners.  I learned a ton doing this project and feel much more advanced in my skills due to completing this.
