Yesterday was dyeing day so I didn't do much of anything else. But I have a little update on the crochet I've been doing lately.
This little blanket is finally done. It's the blanket stitch and is such a perfect stitch for watching TV or riding in the car. Once you get going you barely have to look at it. The edges finish really nicely so it doesn't need a border either. I didn't use that particular tutorial, I just picked the first one I could find to link to but it looks right to me.
The yarn is Lion Brand Ice Cream in the color Lemon Swirl. I like working with this yarn a lot. I used an H hook and the yarn doesn't snag or split. It makes a really soft blanket. I don't particularly like this colorway. I remember picking it just because my previous blankets had all had pink in them and I wanted something blue. This yarn line has some variegated yarns in single color, like yellow, pink. blue or grey. I think those single color variegated yarns would look MUCH better in this stitch and I'd be happy to work with this yarn again for my next car project.....if we ever get out again!
Now it's time to start another project. I started with the one on the left. I've been wanting to try out a corner-to-corner stitch. It's easy to do but I think I might want a smaller hook so I have new hooks on order. In the mean time I had some of this Hobby Lobby yarn that I wanted to try out and I found a pattern form some filet crochet. That's another technique that I wanted to try so I started this one. So far I really like this yarn and pattern. So this is what I'm going to be working on for a while.
Today I'm doing grocery shopping in the morning and dropping groceries off for Mom. After that I plan to be quilting.
