This and That

I started another knitting project.  I had found this lovely ball of yarn at 
a thrift store a while back.  It's quite unique in it's colouring. 

I've nearly finished a Mohawk hat for a co-worker.  I just have to add more fringe down the middle to make it a bit fuller.  I sprayed the strands with spray starch and hung it upside down here to dry.

Here's my baby cat with a simple heart I made.

I've only gotten a few more squares added to my mood blanket.  
Maybe I will post a pic next week when it's more progressed.

Happy weekend!

Weeks Go By

I haven't got a lot to report this week.  Just my squares for the crochet mood blanket challenge.  I've now been making one or two then joining them right away. Trying to color coordinate as I go.

I made a little zip pouch last weekend.  I found a good You Tube tutorial.

Have a good weekend all!

First Week

This so far is my progress on my squares blanket challenge.  I have gotten a bit
distracted from it this week as I had two requests to make hat for co-workers.
One being a Minion hat. LOVE Minions.
Hope everyone's year is starting off well.  It's been a very cold week here.
Hard on the cars, especially mine being 20 years old. 
I don't have a lot to post about.  Seen this on Facebook and thought it was cute.
We've been dealing with some poopy cats and one is particularly not doing well.
He's had issues since getting him from Humane Society.
Such as love.
Hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend.

New Challenges

So far for the Crochet Mood Blanket Squares I've done 5 in 4 days.  I have not yet decided on the border or joining.  Probably just single crochet them together.

Other that these squares, I've been doing some knitting.  This thin scarf.  I'm really getting the hang of continental knitting.  
Today we are starting to get a great deal of snow for our area.  Some call it snowmagedon.  I'm in the blue area.  If you're in these areas, stay warm. Hopefully stocked up in the cupboards and pray for those who do not have proper shelter and food.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!! I've been enjoying other blog posts and Instagram posts on everyone's year in review.  Amazing what you can make in a year isn't it?  I'm sure I have more that what I posted here, but these will do for highlights.

I found some brown yarn in my stash and decided to make a baby
football hat.  That is a new years resolution.  To get using up my stash. I'm sure that is the intention of most of us crocheters and knitters. 

And on Instagram, it's been going around to join the crochet mood blanket 2012 challenge.  Either one square a day for  365 squares, or one a week for 52. Either way you should end up with a nice blanket by year end.  
I picked this style of square for mine, from Jan Eaton's book, Target Square.

And a review of my sewing projects.  I've only just started into sewing this year.

New years day was spend indoors as it was snowing watching Hockey's Winter Classic between Toronto Maple Leafs (my team) and Detroit Red Wings. 
My team won ;)
