Yesterday was crochet day for me. We had our From The Heart group meeting in Ashland in the afternoon. I took this blanket to work on since it will ultimately be donated to FTH. I got the top dark green stripe done and the next light section started. I sure hope that most of this yarn is gone when I finish this large blanket. It is looking pretty good though. I think someone will like it.
It seems like a good time to check in on all of the crochet projects because if I'm going to get one bag out to photograph I can get them all out.
I have a hat bag that I use for taking to meetings or to have in the car and I've been working on some masculine chemo hats. I like Lion Brand Feels Like Butta (and the Yarn Bee and Premier equivalents) for chemo hats. I makes such a soft hat that's perfect for tender skin. I also like Lion Brand Mandala Ombre and I think I will be able to get 2 hats out of one ball. This is a new pattern for me and it makes a slouchy style hat. It's a larger size hat for larger heads and I like the look of it a lot. It's the Brimless Beanie and it's free on Ravelry.
Remember a couple of years ago when I said I was only going to have one project at a time? Pfft. Forget all that!
Project number 3 is another of the big blankets that I've been making for family members. I don't have a recipient identified for this one but it's great to work on in the winter to cover my legs while I stitch away.
Finally, after some time in crochet purgatory, my hexagon sweater is back in the rotation. It's not turning out perfect but it is going to be wearable and I'm learning a lot. I have to sew the center back, add the bottom band and the neck band. It's getting close!
I usually rotate the projects every day. It's going to be interesting to see what happens with my crochet time now that football season is coming to the end. We don't have a habit of watching much TV but I do like to wind down with some productive sitting at the end of the day. No reason I can't continue that habit with my audiobooks.

I like to have different projects in rotation. Some are fussier, some have small additions, some have mindless sewing, but I like a variety to choose from so I don't feel forced to sew something or else. I no longer crochet or knit- something had to go.

Your projects all look great! I always say I want to only have a couple of projects underway at any one time but squirrel moments happen. I currently have my fusion quilt to add crochet to in the evenings, there's a pair of knitted socks ready to work on, and during the day I have a landscape on the go as well as trying to force myself into hand quilting the vintage linens quilt I made a few years ago. I hate hand quilting but my machine balks at such things and the long arm quilter won't touch it. Then there's the dratted hexxie project that's been hanging over my head for too long waiting for me to decide on how to finish it.

You do have quite a few crochet projects going on. Congratulations on the Eagles going to the Super Bowl!
