~ granny square baby blanket ~

Finished up this 2-strand granny square baby blanket a couple of nights ago.
I crocheted it with 1 strand of Lion Brand Mandala yarn in the colorway 'unicorn' and 1 strand of Studio Classic by Nicole in 'gentle white'.
The pattern is 3 rounds of basic granny square and then 1 round of (dc, ch 1, skip a stitch).
In the last round I wove a ribbon through the stitches and then tied it into a bow.
This blanket will be added to the guardian grandmas donation pile.

See you next time.  :)

~ a scrappy scarf ~

I've started a scrappy scarf using scrap 4-ply worsted weight yarns.

I've been watching Kendra from 'Hooked by Happenstance' on YouTube
make scrap yarn strips for a blanket and was inspired.
I don't want to commit to a blanket, so I decided to crochet a scarf.

It might be for me or it might be another Christmas gift.  I'm not quite sure yet.
I'll be sure to let ya'll know.  :)

~ an early Christmas present? ~

I crocheted this hat with Vanna's Choice in grey heather and lemon.  I don't know who it's for yet - I think it will be a Christmas present. 

See you next time.   :)

~ New year - new name ~

Good morning everyone.  
I have changed my blog name to the same name I use on Instagram.
The content will be the same - lots of crochet with family stuff thrown in every once in a while.

As you have noticed, I haven't been too active in regards to my blog.  Things have changed in my life that make it tough to get on the computer.

For one: this little girl - my granddaughter Samantha.  I take care of her while her Mama is at work.

and for two and three: these puppies - Princess Von Dumass (the black and white puppy) and Baron Von Dumass ( the brown and white puppy).

  Everyone knows that with a baby and puppies, you hardly have a minute to do anything.
You may call me crazy at any time you'd like.  :)

I'm most active on Instagram since it's so easy to use, but I will try my best to post more often on here.  If you don't mind repeats, I think I will just post here what I post there.

I wish you all a safe, happy, and healthy New Year.
I'll be seeing you.  :)

~ a squishy blanket ~

I finished this small blanket a little bit ago.  I crocheted it with Bernat Blanket brights in the color 'raspberry ribbon variegated', and I used an N hook.
It's kind of heavy, but it's really soft and squishy.

Here is my Sam - she is 'reading' her favorite book.  This little girl will be 2 years old at the end of this month.  Time flies by so quickly.  :)

~ a blanket for Baron ~

I finished this small granny square blanket a little bit ago.  It's for my new puppy Baron that I will be getting either this weekend or next weekend.  Baron is from the same parents as Princess.

I crocheted the blanket with some vintage yarn that my Uncle Phil gave me that belonged to my late Aunt Lena.
It's called Caron Quick Knit and it is a 100% acrylic, super worsted weight yarn.  My Aunt Lena had bought it from a store called Bradlees that hasn't been around here since the 80's.  She paid $1.29 for each 3 oz. skein.

Enjoy your day.  :)
