These blankets are for my great nephew and great niece. They took me forever. Mainly because during the process of making these blankets, three of them, I got a job.  Things have been very sad around here without my yarn money.

I used Lion Brand Mandala yarn. I didn’t really like this yarn. Too many years of yummy hand dyed yarn has made me a yarn snob. I found this yarn a bit itchy and some of the skeins where full of knots.

The pattern I used is Aurora Skies Ribbed Crochet Baby Blanket. It works up fast and easy.


What else has been going on?

I’m still on break from yarn dyeing. I’ve had to get a job to cover the cost of my mom living with us. I was totally ready to let Apocalypse Friday slip quietly into the sunset, but I miss it too much. I miss knitting, crocheting and kick ass yarns.

While I still can’t dye, I’m going to do my best to share the projects I’m working on and hopefully get some pattern designing done. The Hello Sweetie hat pattern is still waiting to be finished.

I have a new baby blanket on my needles. I’ll be sharing about that soon.

What are you making?
