Ok, so I have been a little MIA, but between moving, and starting the new job, it's been a little crazy! Oh and of course my creative mind has been going crazy, and I have tons to show everyone, which includes finished items and patterns once I write them all down!
So be on the lookout, and make sure you follow my Facebook page! I'm always posting there!
Let's get started with my current WIP!
This 12 point star crochet baby blanket is an order that is going to be listed in my Etsy shop this week. It's not very often that I fall in love with simple afghans like this, but this time, I certainly have. I love everything about this baby blanket. The soft yet bright colors, the shape, and the pattern are all fun; honestly, I love this blanket so much, I want to work on it every spare minute I have when I can't think of anything new to make at the moment.. I can't wait to see the final result so I'm motivated to get it done.
For those of you who crochet, this is made from a FREE! pattern available on Ravelry. I've used the same type of yarn for this pattern, and I absolutely love the variegated yarn. The yarn I used is Lion Brands Jaime yarn in Mardi Gras Stripes. When you first start working with both of this yarn, it seems a little bit "splitty," and thin but don't give up. If you keep going, you'll find that you get used to them. After the first few rounds, I haven't had any splitting issues at all.
If you're looking for a great baby blanket to make, I urge you to give this one a try. It's a nice switch from a rectangular or square blanket and the results are absolutely stunning. Plus, each round you increase the number of stitches, so in case an adult wants to have this afghan, just keep on hookin'!
Have a fabulous Monday everyone! And remember, keep checking back for more posts!
P.S. I think it's time for a blog makeover!
