crochet goodies

Happy Monday!

Sorry I have been slacking with the crafting posts as of late. Summer is just a busy time especially when there are beautiful summer days to enjoy and active kids that want to enjoy them with.

I will probably slow down blogging for the summer to enjoy the time outside and with family and friends. But no worries I will still be around just not as frequently.

Moving along.

I have been an a crocheting kick recently. Does anyone else go through phases of crafting?
Well I have been working on my granny square afghan. I have decided that I want the last ring around to be the same for each square so I'm just working my way through that, then it just needs to be put together! I am very excited! It will also cross off one of my 25 by 25 goals once it is done. (I will post pictures, eventually)

I bought some new yarns last week. I got a little excited and made a slouchy that was going to go into the shop but I kinda fell in love with it.

If you would like one I can make another one just leave me a comment saying so.
Or if you would like any crochet goodies just leave me a comment or email me at
abranconier{at}hotmail{dot}ca
and we can figure out the details.

I have also been trying to use up some smaller balls of yarn that I have laying around. I feel guilty buying more when I still have a bunch. That's probably for the better. So to use up my scarps I have been slowly working on another afghan.

It gets used every once in a while. I'm excited for this one to get finished too.
I recently thrifted some amazing chairs and I want them both to have companions.

Blessings,
Amber

  1. I just got on a crochet kick as well, and have been working on some granny squares of my own. I was attempting an afghan but may settle for a pillow front for now (180 squares is a heck of a lot for a beginner don't you think?!). Lucky for me my mother-in-law let me raid her yarn stash so I've got a ton of great colors. Now to find the time to finish...

  2. Beautiful hat and little blanky. I made a hat like that recently... It took me forever! Seriously, like a week. And my daughter hardly ever wears it. But it's soooooo cute, I might just steal it for myself.

  3. I love finding fellow crocheters because I stink at knitting and it makes me feel better about my inability to catch on in that nook!:) CUTE beanie.
