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.
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!
