Crochet projects update
Well before I get to the crochet update I want to share that I took more masks around yesterday to donate. One stop was the pharmacy to give them some masks to give to their most vulnerable customers. It was very cool to see them wearing the masks and they let me take a photo to share! I dropped more at the grocery store too and they were very appreciative.
Back at home I'm getting the sewing room back in order to work on the cats again starting tomorrow after I do some dyeing.
In the evenings I've been sitting down for a few minutes to relax and do some crochet.
I finished the ripple crochet blanket - finally! It's really soft and pretty but I didn't enjoy making it because I hated the yarn so much.
The colors worked out just fine though. It could be for a young boy or girl.
This one is definitely more of a toddler size blanket. It measures about 32 x 53. I tried my best to use up all of the yarn but that just didn't work out.
I have this much yarn left over and I'm determined to use it.
I've decided that the best way to use it is with a big granny square. I'll start with the partial purple skein, then do white and finish with the full purple skein. That way it can finish to whatever size it becomes. So this is my next project.
I'm also going to quickly quilt two of my veterans quilts and get them bound while I wait for some batting that I ordered for the vintage flower quilt.
It's good to be back on my own projects for a while.

I'm looking forward to getting back to my own projects too, so I know how you feel. I cut out enough for 50 more masks today but still have the ties to do.

I love that the dark haired lady's mask kind of echoed her blouse. She was very color coordinated.

You are more patient than I would be with that yarn. With all the issues with it I would have been donating it and been done with the problem! LOL!!! I handed off a mask to my roofer who stopped by yesterday to look at my roof. I never even thought about the hail storm we had on the 28th that it could have damaged my roof. Well it did and I started a claim yesterday with my insurance company. The roofer didn't have a mask and he was happy to get a Cleveland Cavilers one.
