30 Days of Blog 2016 – Day 1

13329332_1175303959168637_321286527743776729_oLAST June, I was working on Christmas stockings for my family during 30 Days of Blog. I just finished the last one the other day!

Once this afghan is done, I have an order for a newborn mermaid tail cocoon to complete.

 

 

 

 

 

Then I will be starting work on a Christmas tree skirt to go with my family’s stockings. Here’s hoping that I can get all of that done this month!

Sweet 16 Afghan

Julie's Sweet 16 AfghanThe first project of the year is finished and delivered! My Niece Julie turned 16 in January and I wanted to make her a nice, grown-up afghan.  With her favorite color purple, I started in on a corner-to-corner afghan.  This is a very simple pattern that you can easily google instructions for.  It works up perfectly square, or rectangular with very little effort and I really like how the variegated yarn looks in the pattern.  (We know I just love variegated yarn.)

My own creativity comes into play with the edging on this piece.  I did not write down the pattern for this one, but I will include a very rough account of it below.
