Um. Let’s Crochet Stuff

Home life has me so upset and sad that I don’t want to talk about it. So, hey, I finished my giant ripple blanket made of leftover Mandala yarn. Yay.

It’s big. It’s random.

I enjoyed this humongous project so much. It kept me company driving to and from California and was just plain restful and fun. Literally all I did was alternate among three varieties of Mandala tarn (cheap).

It looks like a Missoni print.

As I worked on it Lee fell in love. He asked if he could use it as his winter blanket on his “bed” (a recliner next to our actual bed). I said that was fine. I can make something else for the tack room!

It’s long.

Because he wants it to tuck under his feet, I made it extra long. It was already wider than a normal afghan, so he liked that. I enjoyed the project, so it was fine to keep going. After I was done, I put a single crochet border around it, and all was well. I think Lee likes it.

My precious spouse.

I have a project lined up for Kathleen, but I’m waiting on the yarn she chose to arrive. So I’m making a really fun ruana kind of thing I saw on a Noro magazine. I’m using some cheap stuff that’s lying around, but maybe I’ll make another one in the right yarn later.

It’s this, only with the wrong yarn.

The yarn I’m using is Tex Heart Unforgettable. I have no idea why I bought it. But I’m gonna make some triangles! It’s fun and takes my mind off Kathleen going back to the hospital.

Similar colors.

Hug your loved ones and friends.

  1. Love Lee’s blanket – and his obvious appreciation for it! Besides, it was good to work on…. And the project for Kathleen looks like it will be a beauty too. You’re good – and hope there are no more crises for a long, long time – if ever.

  2. Your blanket is beautiful! Stitching helps me so much. It’s so therapeutic. I’m glad Lee fell in love with the blanket and claimed it as his own 😊
