Jamie Interrupted – Year of Projects Update #16

Wow! What a week. It was packed full of job interviews and helping pack up my parent's house for their move to assisted living in Texas. But, of course, I did manage to squeeze in some good crochet time. Works in Progress First I finished square #6, L’Université, of the Wrapped in Jamie Crochet-Along (CAL).… Continue reading Jamie Interrupted – Year of Projects Update #16

How many CALs?! – Year of Projects Update #15

I have two finished objects for this week - another Triple Luxe Cowl and an Alex Beanie in Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. These two patterns go really well together since they both use the hdc camel stitch (hdc in the third loops). This time I did the cowl in a spiral and I put a… Continue reading How many CALs?! – Year of Projects Update #15

Block Party – Year of Projects Update #14

This week's title is Block Party because I found myself working almost exclusively on squares for the various Crochet-Alongs (CALs) I'm participating in, plus I spent several hours yesterday blocking the squares I've already done. I do have two other finished objects for the week, though, that are not blocks. First, I made a final… Continue reading Block Party – Year of Projects Update #14

One more set to go before I drop them off at my local yarn store.… Continue reading Procraftination – Year of Projects Update #12

SO. MUCH. YARN. – Year of Projects Update #11

I think I've decided that the Golden Tea Floral Block is too fussy to turn into a pillow for C.  It is turning out huge -- 25" at not quite the end of Part 2. I had been thinking I'd make it fit by turning it 45° and bringing the four points of the square… Continue reading SO. MUCH. YARN. – Year of Projects Update #11

It’s My Party and I’ll CAL if I Want To – Year of Projects Update #10

I got started on the Tiny Cables Throw Crochet-Along (CAL) last Sunday on the drive up and back while helping move my older daughter into her apartment. (She starts her first post-college job tomorrow, Monday!) The Tiny Cables pattern was written in a very confusing way and looking at the PDF on my phone in… Continue reading It’s My Party and I’ll CAL if I Want To – Year of Projects Update #10
