So. Not much has been going on here except for worrying, hand wringing, etc. However a couple of days ago I did fit in a little time to crochet a small test swatch of a pattern that I really liked the look of. It is for a crochet blanket called the Bricks and Mortar Blanket, by Bernat. I want to make a blanket for my soon-to-be eighteen year old son that he can bring to college with him in September. Just a little bit of crocheted love from home.
I like this, but I think that I will look for yarns that are less contrasty to make the blanket with. I don’t want it to have such a bold look. Also, I need to work on how to join different color yarns and how to carry them up the side without it getting messy looking like it is on the left side of this swatch.
We have piles and piles of snow all over! We had to make paths for Timmy and Polly to go outside! We’re due for a small bit of snow again on Saturday and then a rain/snow event for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I think I’ve had enough!
I hope you are all well and warm and cozy. If you are able, please take a moment and stop by my friend Se’Lah’s Necessary Room. You can sign up and send someone in need a store bought or handmade card. I know that it will mean so much to them.
