Drawstring bags

I am introducing a new line of drawstring bags. These bags are super cute and convenient for all kinds of knitting projects.

I personally go and scour for fabrics that will look best on these cuties.

This past week I have been working on  this super colorful crochet blanket. It has 5 colors and joining in white.

After creating random squares on random granny square generator, I made all the rounds in three randomly chosen colors using this pattern. Finally, I joined them using continuous join as you go hexagon, the tutorial for this can be found here. I love continuous joining and this tutorial is really awesome. Saves a whole lot of time and ends to sew in.

Materials:

Caron Simply soft yarn in the colors:

white, Harvest red, Lemonade, Blue Mint, Watermelon, and Limelight.

Finished dimensions: 24X28”.

I didn’t do any edging on this blanket. My husband convinced me that the staggered edge looks good. Now, I think so too.

Knitted stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Here is my latest knitted stripes baby blanket in gender neutral colors. I love these colors together with the mild green and the pop of purple.

I used the random stripe generator for this. I really like it as a tool to see how the colors go together. I frequently play around with it for color inspirations and to get a visual of the blanket.

Here is the link to the pattern. I have made two such blankets earlier in yellow and grey and blue and red. I do really enjoy this pattern and with the updates in it, it looks even better. However, blocking is essential for this blanket to really show the stitches.

Circular needles

Finished dimensions: 25X35”

Crochet 3D squares Blanket

Here is what I have been working on for a long time. I have had this project in progress since last November. I know we all have projects snoozing around. But I usually have only one or two projects (I know I am kinda crazy like that). Unfinished projects drive me crazy and I have to get them done as soon as possible or if I don’t like it, it has to be frogged.

This one was awesome but I had quite a few colors to work with. So it took me a while to get the colors together and get a chart so I knew which one went where. I really like how it turned out. It was worth the wait. This blanket is for a dear friend and she got the yarn and colors and I have to say it was awesome. The yarn is 100% wool and the colors are really nice and go well together. Here is the link to the pattern. I really enjoyed working on this pattern (with this yarn, it was a really nice winter project). The blanket is soft and warm and thick.

Charcoal Gray, Natural and Grecian Olive Green

Sunburst Gold, French Clay, Burnt Sienna, Brick Road
