Ugh...its Monday. My weekend was a good one. I saw a movie (Friends With Benefits, very funny and good and I recommend!), relaxed with the bf, and went to the pool. It was very much the typical lazy summer weekend.
While we were lounging on the couch watching TV, I got a lot of crocheting in! I have a lot of progress on two of my big projects now. I now have 10 squares finished for my Gram's blanket.
I had really been doing these squares very leisurely. I'm not going to give her the finished blanket until Christmas and I have some other projects that have to be finished first. So, I think it's a lot of progress. :-)
This next one has to be finished well before Christmas, and I think it will be. I'm almost at the halfway mark.
This is my granny stripe blanket. I can't say who its for even though I'm 99.9% sure she doesn't know I have a blog and wouldn't know how to find it. You can never be too careful. Currently it is about 65" wide and 20" long. I have decided that since I accidentally started it REALLY wide, that the width will be the long side. I think I want the finished product to be about 65"x50", but it's probably going to end up bigger because of a border.
I have so many projects that I want to start and already have the yarn for. They are just waiting for me and staring at me. I feel like there isn't enough time in the day!!!
Of the projects where I have EVERYTHING planned, including owning the yarn and pattern there are:
3 hats, 1 scarf, 1 wrap, 1 bag, 2 sets of pot holders, and 3 hanging kitchen towels
You see some of the small projects that I have been doing are for my Etsy shop. You didn't know that I have one?! Well...that's because I haven't listed anything yet. I have 6 items made for it (2 scarves, 1 set of potholders, 2 water bottle cosies, and a hot drink sleeve) and I just think that there aren't enough items yet. How many do you think I should have? I was thinking about 15.
I'll let you know when I list everything and have my "Grand Opening"!
I thought that this was going to be a mini post just showing my progress over the weekend, but it turned out to be long! Whew!!
