Something Old: I’m a little behind on posting for my Granny Square project, but I still wanted to show it off. The photo isn’t true to the colors; it’s so much prettier in person. I love the thing, and I’m really glad I used the colors I did (except for one, but I’ll keep that to myself :)). I tried to just use yarns in my stash, which I nearly accomplished. I only had to buy one to complete it. I actually finished this in the middle of February, about two weeks after I started it, but I was just today able to get a photo taken.

And now for Something New: I’ve been going a little Amigurumi crazy since the first of March. These little guys worked up so quick and easy, I couldn’t resist making one of each.


Not counting the little feet, they meet the 6″ or under smallness. The patterns can be found on the Lion Brand web site. The pattern for these two little guys are also on that site:

Bear Buds

They’re a mere 4″ tall and are so much cuter in person. I made the one with the yellow for the newest baby in the family to put in his Easter basket.

Around the Block


This is kinda like a granny square, only a bit different. It’s the beginnings of the Round the Block afghan from the book 24-Hour Crochet Projects. Instead of making a lot of smaller squares, the square on this one will only get bigger until it becomes a 50x50ish-sized blanket.

I love the ruffles, and right now, I love the shades of pink, but that will change. I’m stash-busting as I do this project, using up worsted weight yarn in my stash that has no particular purpose. I’ve made this afghan once before and really liked the results. I think sometime I may actually make one in just the pink/reddish hues, but it’ll have to be at a time I’m not trying to use up yarns I already have. Will post the finished project when it’s done!
