So way back (years ago, lol) I wrote a post telling you guys that I had embarked on a crochet mission to complete two "throws" for my daughters.
Well, I actually finished them LAST fall, but never got around to posting the photos of them so here they are!
I had a lot of fun doing these blankets and they traveled with me on car rides, vacation, the couch, on the beach and I also worked on them during work when I was on hold or in between stressful tasks (I work from home)! Even though these blankets took me AGES to complete, I was a tiny bit sad to see such a long and relaxing project come to an end.
But I was also really happy to have finally finished them!
Sometimes the fun is in the "making" of things and not the actual finished result. :)
I didn't really know about "blocking" at the time (in order to get more even motiffs) so some of the snowflakes came out a little wonky, but overall, not too bad for a beginner!
I spent so many sunny mornings on the porch with my coffee making these little snowflakes.
This one was for Pumpkin Pie.
The Elsa fan.
This one was for Little Button.
The Anna fan.
If anyone is interested in trying this project, I used this snowflake pattern and chose variegated blue/green, white and purple/blue Red Heart acrylic yarn from Walmart.
Some of the strands are unraveling a little and it's not holding up quite as well as I thought it would, but I love seeing them being used to keep warm or build a fort.
Little Button likes to poke her toes through the holes. :)
I hope you guys enjoyed my crafty post even though it didn't involve any dolls. I had considered trying to make a doll sized mini blanket in this style, but never got around to it. It would've been cute, though!
As of now, I'm finishing up a cross-stitch project and then will probably start on a new crochet blanket. I really want to try to make a granny square one for the couch sort of like Amy Farrah Flower's blanket on the Big Bang Theory!
I know a lot of you guys sew, but was curious if any of you crochet as well?? It is so relaxing.
I hope you all have a good week and as always, thanks for reading and see you next time!
