Finished Friday: May 21-May 27

I finally remembered to post for Finished Friday! Woohoo! First, I’m going to post the blankets I’ve finished over the last 3 weeks…which are only three. The first blanket is Tides of Change by Frank O’Randle. This is a free pattern. I used what I had in my stash (I’m trying to cut down on adding more, buuuttt, we all know how that works!) and only worked with what I had. My final measurement was 45.5″ in diameter.

I have worked on several of Frank’s patterns, both paid and free, and each one never fails to amaze me in one way or another, so if you haven’t tried one out yet, I HIGHLY recommend trying one!

Another project I finished is from the pattern I posted last Friday, my Stunningly Simple Baby Blanket! When I made this blanket pattern, I was trying to figure out a pattern for a boy that wasn’t too “girly” but wasn’t too boring either and I think I hit the nail on the head, although I’m pretty biased. 

Now, on to the blanket I finished this week! The pattern I used is called Anya and it is the third one I’ve made using it. This is a paid pattern, it sells for $3.75 (as of this post) and it’s well worth it. This pattern is only 33 rounds, so it’s quick and to the point. I modified this pattern a little bit. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn and a J hook, but I used Lion Brand Homespun, which is bulky weight and a K hook. Took me about 3 days to make and the final measurement ended up being almost 5 feet in diameter, it measured 58″! It did take 4.5 skeins, so depending in the cost of bulky yarn in your area, it could be a little pricy. I tend to only buy specialty yarn with a coupon or when it’s on sale. Gotta be frugal when you’re a family of five living off of one income! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at my hard work and I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new or pick up something old! I’d love to see what you’re working on, so if you have a minute, feel free to post a picture to my Facebook page: Crocheting Crazy!
Always be inspired!

  1. I hadn’t heard of Frank O’Randle before so I checked out his Ravelry page. Very startling patterns, but I’m sure I’ll make colour changes. You’ve done a great job on this one!
