2019 Temperature blankets Update

My temperature blankets are getting some size to them now. I like the way they’re looking.

My husband told me that my blankets remind him of the music screen the humans played for the aliens on ‘close encounters of the 3rd kind’.¬† ūüėÄ


 

Happy Crafting!

WIP Wednesday – March 2019 Temperature blankets Update

Here’s my monthly update of my temperature blankets. Crocheting the daily add-on has become a part of my morning routine. My blankets are coming along well. I like the way they look with their different lengths of colors.


I wish you all success in whatever projects you have in the works.

WIP Wednesday – Temperature blankets Update

In an earlier post, I said I was going to give updates on my temperature blankets every 29 days or so, but I made another color change that I wanted to share.
I’m not using ‘Aran’ color for the joining. I’m using other colors to help give the blankets more character and help make them easier to tell apart.

For the ‘High Temperature’ blanket, I’m using ‘burgundy’ for the joining (and the edging when it’s finished) because that’s the color of the ‘Highest’ temperature on my chart.For the ‘Low Temperature’ blanket, I’m using ‘White’ for the joining (and the edging when it’s finished) because that’s the color of the ‘Lowest’ temperature on my chart.

I’m hoping that this is the final adjustment I make. Now I can focus on adding the colors each day and joining the rows together every 14 days.

Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week.

WIP Wednesday – Crochet Cardigan

I’ve always wanted to try to make a simple crochet cardigan to wear around the house.¬† Over the years I’ve looked at hundreds of patterns from fancy to odd, but none were as simple as I wanted.
I played with the idea of making one freehand just to see how it would turn out.¬† I planned in my mind how I’d make it. I got the hook and yarn together¬†and then I began.
I’ve made plenty of hats and scarves to wear, but this is the first crocheted garment that I’ve made for myself.
It’s coming¬†along faster¬†than I thought it would. I figure I’ll finish it over the next couple days. I hope it turns out okay. Wish me luck.

Wishing you all success on your works-in-progress.
Happy Wednesday!

WIP Wednesday – New Blankets for Shelibean

When Shelibean first came to join our family, I discovered that he loved crocheted blankets. I crocheted him 4 simple little blankets. I used Red heart yarn that I had bought several years before. It was even the last of the yarn. I was happy to use it up. Crocheting Sheli the blankets restarted my love of crochet and yarn crafting in general. The blankets have held up really well even though I wash them alot. I figure they’ll last for a few more years.8-15-2012-sb

It’s been 4 1/2 years since I made the blankets. I thought Sheli might enjoy some new ones.¬† I use a simple granny square pattern. The blankets work up quite fast. I plan to make 3 (maybe more)

Shelibean’s enjoying the first 2 blankets so much the he lay still while I took his handsome photo.

Wishing you all progress in your
works-in-progress, whatever they may be.
