Sweet Lorraine Lace Scarf

At first I thought that this pattern wouldn’t work well with a variated yarn, but after the first few rows I really liked how it looked. Reminds me of a fresh fruit cup with blackberries, melon, strawberries and blueberries, with a sprig of mint on the side. When you download the pattern, it shows in both written and diagram form, which is very helpful, once you get familiar with the written pattern, the diagram is great for reference. It also works up quite fast so I am excited to finish this one soon and post up some completed photos!

Project Update: DROPS Blanket

I am happy to say that I have finally finished all of the squares for my DROPS blanket project that I started back in April, I have worked on it off and on since then and have just now started to stitch the squares together, here is a photo of all of the squares and then what it will look like in the final pattern.



Will update with final pictures once I am finished!

Granny Square Blanket

I had a bunch of Red Heart My Love yarn lying around and thought I would try the crochet standard Granny Square blanket.

While very basic, I enjoyed learning the classic stitch pattern. Wanting to use up the yarn I had resulted in some odd rows with color swapping, however I still like how it turned out. Here are some photos.



The blanket came to about 3 feet by 3 feet once I used up all the yarn I had, so not really big but that is ok, I still like how it turned out. Overall it was a fun quick project and a great way to use up a bunch of yarn if you have a lot of the same lying around that you want to use up.
