This is just a very fragmented account of some of my recent projects.  The whole reason I started this blog is to keep track of the projects I am creating.

I’ve listed these projects in roughly chronological order, but not exactly.  I use Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn almost exclusively, and all of the projects on this page are made from 100% acrylic yarn.


This striped shawl was created using scraps of yarn, following this pattern from Laughing Purple Goldfish Designs. Completion date: Jan 17, 2011.


This is a diagonal baby blanket I made for a friend’s baby using a variety of autumn colors of I Love This Yarn and this patten from Mam’zelle Flo. Completion date Aug 18, 2013.


This diagonal baby blanket was also created for a friend’s baby using the same pattern as the above.  Completion date Oct 2, 2013.


This blanket was created using this pattern. Completion date June 20, 2014.


This afghan ws created following this pattern from RedHeart, and using scrap yarn. Completion date July 23, 2014.


This afghan was created using this pattern, and scrap yarn.  I don’t think I really read the pattern, just used the photo for inspiration.  I cannot recall if I had to buy the cream yarn or if I had it on hand. Completion date Aug 2, 2014.


This afghan was made following this pattern from The Crochet Crowd. I used a different join. I just single crocheted them together, this is how to do it.  Completion date unknown, sometime in 2014.

This afghan was created following this pattern from Red Heart.  Completion date Aug 20, 2014.


This is a little baby blanket that I just made up using join-as-you-go granny squares and a granny stripe border and left over yarn from the afghan above it.  Easy, fast, homey, I love it! Completion date Aug 27, 2014.


This baby blanket was created using granny squares and the five chain flat braid continuous join, and an easy, 4 round, v-stitch border with (sc, ch3, sc) in each v-stitch as the last round.  I learned the join using these two YouTube videos.  They’re long, but detailed and easy to understand.  Well worth the watching.

First video.

Second video.
