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 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.
