It’s definitely not a fabulous job but,it didn’t suck like the one earlier in the week. So I’m calling this one a win.
The teenagers granny ripple blanket is done. Better pics when the sum comes out. Bed time!
I have 12. Any ideas what I can do with them? I ran out of blue, ran to the store only to find no more of the blue. So now I’m stumped and don’t
want them to go to waste. 😦
While I realize this is being a little dramatic, at the moment it doesn’t seem like it, and I want to deem this day ” The Worst Day Ever”. One of those days where you don’t dare ask what else can go wrong? Because that would end badly. I have spent the entire day in tears, and when I did manage to pull myself together, I was on the verge of tears. I did make it to my cardio kickboxing class to kick things and in turn get my butt kicked. Ya, that didn’t help either. Then the topping on the cake, I dropped my one and only bottle of wine till payday, and it broke everywhere. UGH!!!!!!!! So…reduced to beer, here I sit watching bad tv. I do however need to mention that the teenager is being wonderful and taking on Z (aka monster toddler) for me tonight. I owe her big.
I attempted the first 6 rounds of the wool eater CAL today and got completely lost. I manged round 1 and 2 just fine. Round 3 threw me for a loop and it made NO sense. Of course it was probably a bad idea to do this when having such a rotten day. Maybe I’ll give it another shot tomorrow. I really wanted to make it work, why can’t it be easier?! So tonight, instead of trying out a new pattern, I am going with easy and comfy and going to work on the teenagers granny ripple blanket.
I was just about all caught up on my granny square a day when I found a square pattern I loved and then my whole idea changed. Originally I was going to just do 1 totally random granny square a day. I am new to reading patterns, so I was challenging myself to try a new one each day. But when I found this pattern I changed directions with my plan.
These are the ones I had done up till the pattern find (colors aren’t so great since the sun was going down.
Then these are the ones that changed my mind
I think my new plan of attack is going to be to stick with this single pattern but go with whatever color my mood is for the day. Of course chosen from whatever yarn I have laying around at the moment.
I have been busy. I started to work on my first crochet purse for a friends birthday. Its not picture worth yet, need a few more days on it. I had to rework the pattern I was using. I didn’t like the way it flowed, so I had to arrange it for my pattern reading skills. Is that bad etiquette?
And yet another project I have been working on is a blanket for my daughter, a granny ripple.
You can’t really tell but there is purple after the blue. Of course there is always a hitch in every project. The purple is my hitch. I was doing 5 rows of each color. And when I hit the second yellow I realized I had skipped a row of purple. So my plan is to keep going with only 4 purple then use purple as my boarder to make up for the lack of purple. I’m hoping to have this one done in the next 2 weeks. Teenagers are very pushy and she is being very impatient.
And last but not least. Today I took a break from my crochet projects to put together a little storage box for some of my yarn. I initially thought the box was much bigger. So imagine my surprise when I put it together and discovered just how bad my math really is LOL. Oh well, it still turned out really stinking cute once I added the fabric. It still needs a few finishing touches once my glue dries, But here is the general idea
And there you have it. What I have been up to this week. Oh ya and because of my game plan change for the granny square a day, I am now 3 days behind again
