Rainbow Blankie, Continued. :)

And it continues...

Now the double-yellow is finished, and there's yellow-and-green and double-green.

And then I got sucked into the first season of Bones and didn't take pictures that often. In this pic there's two go-rounds of double-red to double-purple, and the double-purple is almost done.

It begins!

Center square: double red. Then going around red and orange.

Now with double orange and orange-and-yellow, and half of yellow. :)

Bargain of the Year!

18 skeins of yarn from Michael's. They all look to be unused, but they were returned and they didn't have the paper on them that is usual with yarn, and they were in the dollar bins where there's usually little candles or tiny stamp pads or random stuff with initials on them.

Yep, I spent $18 on 18 skeins of yarn. Each one is roughly three times that at full retail.

My mommy was so proud! :D






The first image is of all the yarn on the bed in my mom's guest room (which used to be my room but is now totally different), which has dusky pink sheets and there's a floral-print bedspread visible around the edges. The other four images are a clockwise series of close-ups of the same yarn.

I don't always do well crocheting with the Homespun, but it's great on the Knifty Knitter. The other four are, I think, one organic cotton something or other (the pink-brown-white one) and the other three either Vanna's Choice or Impeccable.

A shelf full of projects. :)

A stack of hats on the left, two shawls and the baby hat from an earlier post on the right atop two sets of squares for other blankets.


I don't think that's a tenth of my finished projects. I hope I can sell my wares this fall!

New Project: Space Invaders blanket for Chris.

Loops and Threads brand Charisma yarn squares in light blue and medium blue. Once I can afford more of this yarn I look forward to working with it again. It's soft. And thick. :D


Here's the pattern:


A Space Invaders alien, blown up and made into a pixel pattern.

Well, I've mastered the garter stitch.


Now I just need to learn to purl so I can do the stockinette stitch so I can make clothes.

Also, to learn how to finish off knitted pieces. :P

Baby Beanie. :)


Double strands of blues-and-white Sensations brushed yarn made from the second-smallest circular Knifty Knitter I've got.
