Crocheting along – Jake’s Blankie, Week 10

I’m squeaking this in just under the wire – Week 11 of the Jake’s Blankie CAL on Jessie at Home actually starts today. My blanket though, is finished! I managed to find more white. I’m not entirely sure it’s the same yarn, but if not, it’s very close. I found just enough to do the one row border, but that’s all it needed. I … Continue reading →

Crocheting along – Jake’s Blankie, Week 9

Week 9 of Jakes Blankie

My blanket for the Jake’s Blankie CAL on Jessie at Home is starting to look like an actual blanket now, though I think it’s going to need some more blocking when it’s all done. I ran out of all the yarn in all three colors just making the squares. Since this was supposed to be a stashbuster, I didn’t want to buy a … Continue reading →

Crocheting along – Moogly Afghan CAL – Block 4

Square 4 for the Moogly CAL blanket

Eep! I’m afraid I’ve gotten a little behind on my squares for the Moogly Afghan CAL. She just announced block 5 today, and I’m just now ready to show you my block 4! I loved this Family Square by Stacey Williams of Busting Stitches. The best part for me was the rotation in the middle. I loved watching the corners of … Continue reading →

Here it is, the last square for the Jake’s Blankie CAL on Jessie at Home! I got creative again with this one, to use up my last bits of light blue and white. This time I used my blocking wires to block it – I don’t know why I didn’t do them all this way – so much easier! I’ll definitely use them again … Continue reading →

Finally ahead of the game, I’m actually done with both week 7 and week 8 squares for the Jake’s Blankie CAL on Jessie at Home! Here’s my week 7 square – but I won’t show you week 8 until next week.

Crocheting along – Moogly Afghan CAL – Block 3

Square 3 for the Moogly Afghan CAL

Here’s my third block for the Moogly Afghan CAL: Block 3 is the Windmill Afghan Square by Lorene Eppolite, on Cre8tion Crochet. I think this might be my favorite square. Then again, I think every square is going to be my favorite square when we get to it!  I love the bold design, and the construction is simpler than the last two squares. … Continue reading →
