    Good morning! Just pulled this blanket out of the dryer. It is for my nephew who is getting married on Friday. I wasn't procrastinating, I just found out on June 20th this was happening! Eek - I really need more notice. But - I'm glad it is done.

      hereami - not a WIP. Just fast on the hook, and some spare time when customers didn’t need me. :-)

      Holy moly! It would take me a year to finish something that big! Hahahh! Looks great and will make a lovely heirloom. ❤

    Good morning everyone! I finally finished my granny baby blanket, made of DK weight. Should be pretty in pink for some little one.

    Wiggle Crochet! What a fun project! I used #10 thread. It measures 8" x 8", 1/2" thick & is very dense. Perfect tea pot trivet.

      ReneCall It is cool. Very cool and I think you should try it. My problem wasn't the rug itself, it was the spot I was making it for. There wasn't enough clearance between the bottom of the door and the floor. I really wanted to use the yarn I had so chose a different technique for the rug and then somehow never made wiggle again. We'd love to see it if you do give it a go!

      lovely work. I love how perfect the center is and how there seems to be perfect rays leading from it.
      Baby is going to love it.

      This came out wonderfully! I absolutely love the color changes. You did a great job matching the yarn to the pattern, it's perfect. And I really like that shape, it's different and that just adds to it's attractiveness! Nice job, @TexasPurl!!

      This is so pretty! I'm starting to see a lot of pretty Tunisian crochet options and I have a set of needles--I might just have to give it a try!

    Our grandson is completely immersed in the Pokemon shows & games. I made him his own Pikachu plush while we watch movies this weekend. It was a bit of a challenge with no pattern, but I didn't want to go against any copyright issues if I bought a pattern. I can't imaging the creators have given anyone permission for patterns. It's a bit wonky, but he's happy!

    I'm still busting away at the stash, and I found a bundle of eyelash yarns. So far I've made 3 animals and a big cuddle cushion.

      Thanks! They are very squishy, and the cushion is a bone of contention between me, my daughter, and both cats - everyone wants it.

      Absolutely love the animals.
      Great work!
      Did you use two yarns together, or just the eyelash yarn?

    • Lemming13

      I used the eyelash yarn on its own, just used standard yarn for the eyes and ears etc. It was easier to use when knitting.

    I finished my "summer" throw for our family room. I used a fingering weight yarn from Leading Men Fiber Arts that I purchased last year at the Michigan Fiber festival. It was intended for something else that didn't thrill me, so it sat for quite some time. I found this simple shell pattern in treble crochet and made blocks of colors. The drape is amazing and I'm very pleased with it. Now to make pillows for the couch and love seat that go nicley with the throw.

      It looks wonderful on that chair! And the chair looks cozy, ready & waiting for someone to put their feet up & toss it over themselves.

    Finally blocked these Tunisan sampler cloths this weekend. I used some vintage cotton baby yarn and they're so soft! I need some additional practice with tension, but I hope to give them as Christmas gifts to the gals on my list along with some yummy soap from Canada.

      I like the texture, I still struggle with Tunisian, I'll try again after allergy season.

      That's a very pretty cloth. Once it's washed & dried a few times I'd bet any variances in tension will sort themselves out. It's a perfect give and is sure to be appreciated!

      I agree with pinesprairie, returning kindness with kindness is such a beautiful example these days. I'm sure it's still happening, we just don't hear about it anymore.

    I am working on a beaded shawl pattern from KnitSwag’s Etsy store. You should check out her store - she has some really neat gift ideas there. I don’t usually purchase patterns, as there are so many freebies, but I fell in love with this pattern and just had to have it.

    KnitSwag thanks for the great customer service!

    Hopefully this link will take you to the pattern. I just started it yesterday, but it was hard to put down 😊. Pay no attention to the little yellow pins, they we’re all I had handy to block it for the picture. My yarn is Regia Classic sock yarn in solid navy
