Well I didn’t post last week because I hadn’t done anything. I didn’t get my sisters blanket done on time so it’s now a Christmas gift. I screwed up one of the squares and got very frustrated and I haven’t picked it up since. I have done a few other things in the mean time though.
I joined swap-bot and one of the swaps I joined is a 12 inch square swap. I crocheted mine (you could knit or crochet) and I think it turned out great. I started it Friday night and I worked on it on the ferry over and back from Vancouver on Saturday and finished up the border at home that night. At first I wasn’t sure of the colours I had picked to go together but I think it turned out really nice!
I also have started working on the new Crochet Crowd CAL-KAL that Yarnspirations is helping host. The first clue was released yesterday and I’m halfway done the 20 granny squares for it. I’m considering also doing the knitted one too but I don’t have enough yarn unless I go buy more. I know I could go buy more yarn but I can’t buy anything until March now. I spent money at IKEA getting a few things for my mom and myself this weekend so all my extra month for the month is gone XD Here are the colours I picked and the squares I’ve done so far:
Hoping to get the rest of them done in the next day or so. I’m also working on a crochet border for a knit blanket a friend of mine made. She hasn’t crocheted in years so she asked me to help her. I was first going to teach her how to do it herself but she got intimidated and just asked me to do it and she’d pay me. I worked on the single crochet border round last night and I’ll be planning out the shell round tonight when I get home from work. I’m also making her a crocheted baby hat with a detachable beard for a baby shower she’s attending in 2 weeks. Also being paid to make it. I need to print out business cards for her to take with her (she requested some) so I need to buy cards and design one at home. Not enough time to order them from VistaPrint I don’t think.
