Boy do I really feel bad today. I woke up this morning all stuffed up with a fever and a sore throat. I have spent most of the day on the couch with medicine head watching television and crocheting. I sure hope I feel much better tomorrow. I just hate being sick.
As I have promised, I have finally taken pictures of two crochet projects I have on the go. Both projects were requested by one of my cousins on my dad's side. She has a beautiful little boy and is currently pregnant with a little girl. She offered to pay me for my efforts but I have found that I just enjoy crocheting so much more if I am making something as a gift.
Are you ready to see?
As you can see, I am making the baby girl blanket in the round. I love how frilly it looks as it ripples up the larger it gets. I am making it out of scrap Red Heart Super Saver. I don't know the exact colors but they are a light pink, a light purple, and cream. I figure I am about 3/4 of the way finished with this blanket.
The second blanket I will be making for my cousin is for her little boy. She wanted him to have a blanket he can snuggle with as he watches tv. She also suggested the colors should be in the greens and browns area. So I went to Hobby Lobby and decided to try their I Love This Yarn line which I have heard so much about. I am using brown, mid green, and linen colors. I decided the pattern would be a diagonal granny stripe.
I spent a lot of time last night just thinking of how I could make the stripes diagonal. Then an idea popped in my head and BOOM here is what I worked out. I will make this blanket as wide as I want it and then reverse the colors so I will end with the green in the other corner.
As for the I Love This Yarn brand. This yarn is very soft. It glides really smooth on my hook. I love how it works up. I guess I could say I really do love this yarn.
Wanna see the picture of the day?
Here is the Columbus sky line.
My hubby and I decided to venture out yesterday and I decided to we wanted to explore Columbus. I have to say I am kind of disappointed about the downtown skyline. There really isn't many tall buildings to oooh and aaaah over. However, we did go by The Ohio State University. It is a beautiful school BUT I am a strict MICHIGAN WOLVERINE fan so that's all I can say about it. ;p
I will write again once I feel a little better.
Until then, Be Blessed
