Pink Blanket For Pine Ridge Finished!

A Finish!, Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge July 23, 2016

Early in 2016 I committed to sending 200 items to Pine Ridge. It was that commitment which initially inspired me to learn to crochet. I started with cotton dishcloths and then went to winter scarves and then to hats. After about 30 hats I got a bit bored with hats and needed a bit of a break so I decided to make a baby blanket. The first blanket I made using Lion Brand’s Lemon Swirl Big Scoop Ice Cream Yarn. This one is made using Lion Brand’s Cotton Candy Big Scoop Ice Cream Yarn.

A Baby Boy Blanket For Pine Ridge

A Finish!, Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge July 4, 2016

I got a bit bored making hats so decided to take a break and do something else for a while. I found some gorgeous blue, yellow, white, and aqua baby yarn and decided it would make a beautiful baby blanket. I decided it was time to learn a new crochet stitch…having only known single crochet up to that point. So I watched some YouTube videos and learned how to do the half double stitch. This baby blanket/afghan is done totally in half double crochet. There is no pattern…just half double crochet and variegated yarn.

Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Happy Stitchers Afghan Project April 16, 2016

It’s been a little while since I posted pictures of crocheted items. Last week I finished making 15 rectangles (10 of the light camel color and 5 of the pretty variegated). These will be sent to the Happy Stitchers Afghan Project where they will be joined with rectangles made by others from around the world to form afghans. The finished afghans are then sent to Landstuhl Hospital in Germany.

Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge, Sunday Freebies February 15, 2016

I have a very short Sunday Freebies post for you today. This week I spent more time sourcing materials for projects that I’m thinking about making than searching out new patterns. The results of those searches will make their way into upcoming posts on places to buy apparel fabric, places to buy lace and other trim, places to buy fabric by the pound, and places to buy yarn.
