Geometric Blanket

Hello, hello!

I have a new crochet project to share today! (I’m sure you notice my crochet posts become more common during the colder months!)

I was inspired to make a geometric type blanket after I saw a similar one on Pinterest.

To create this blanket, I crocheted strips of hexagons, sort of like super long granny squares, in various patterns and colors, and then connected them together.

I’m pretty pleased with this one! I now have a desire to attempt more geometric sort of designs… maybe a triangle blanket? Time will tell!

Granny Square Blanket…Finally!

Hey!

So I don’t know if any of you remember my granny square blanket I’ve been working on for quite some time, but I am pleased to say that it is finally completed! I was hoping to have it done awhile ago, but at the end of the process I decided to add a final detail that ended up taking longer than I had intended.

The detail I decided to add at the end was the penny circle border I did. I made it a bit bigger than it should have been so it bunches up, but I actually like the finale effect it had.

Well that is all for now!

It is Now Crochet Season!

Hey there!

So as of late [as I am sure you have all noticed] the weather has been leaning towards the chilly side. I can’t say I’m exactly the biggest fan of colder weather, winter is definitely my least favorite season, but I do like warm sweaters, hot cocoa, fuzzy blankets, and of course crochet! Oh I also like delicious pumpkin lattes in my favorite kitty mug! :]

Now, I am by no means a master crocheter, but I am proud to say I can whip up a pretty decent scarf! I picked up this hobby about two years ago while living in the dorms. My roommate started doing it and it captured my interest. She is my best friend and also my crafting partner in crime!

I was inspired as of late by one of my favorite blogs and decided that I’m going to take on a new project. I’m going to attempt to create a granny square blanket! I started the process a few days ago and have already have a small stack of squares to boast of.

I think I may have had a slight obsession with the color blue while purchasing my yarn last year. I’ll for sure have to keep a lookout for sales at Hobby Lobby and Joannes on yarn so I can broaden my blanket’s colors!

Well, that is all I have for now. I will certainly keep you updated on the progress of my blanket! Until then, check out my Etsy Shop!
