Another blanket!  This was supposed to be queen-sized... I'm thinking maybe I'll call it a bedspread.  That works, right?  Sure!

Excellent work carolmb!  I love the colours you chose for the blanket test. ^_^  I'm also deeply in love with the colours in that quilt! Very inspiring!


I have just finished the last of my baby blanket pattern samples.  Yay!


It's not the last one I'll make, but there's at least one of each layout finished now. Hooray!

What the heck, I'm counting this one:

Dad and I decided to try making bacon bowls for dinner.  This one was mine:

Which we cooked in the microwave:

Then filled with egg:

Dad made his on a slightly bigger bowl, and we tried cooking it in the toaster oven:

It didn't turn out as well - it fell apart the moment we tried to remove it from the bowl.  It was tasty just the same, though!

I made some more Stocking Caps, this time they're child-sized!

Here's one next to an adult-sized one:

Hang by the chimney with care, or better still, wear on your head:

I finished this long blanket this morning.  I was planning on selling it, but... I might just keep it for myself!  I love it too much!

Just finished this one today - it reminds me of clouds in the sky! (If they, you know, got all pixelated because we're trapped in the matrix, or something...)

It's another one for charity. ^_^

I was just looking at my list here and noticed that I'm behind a bit on posting blankets!

I just finished this one this morning:

I'm deeply in love with this one (and it's going to charity!)
IMG_20140603_190437 by fantasticmio, on Flickr

This charity blanket looks a lot better in person:

This one is for charity, too:

I made this one for my niece to give to one of her teachers who is expecting a baby over the summer:

And I also made another stocking cap:

I finished this blanket last night, and was very excited to see what it actually looked like (it was pretty dark in here when I finished it. lol)



That ring of squares around the outside was a bit of an experiment, but it worked! (The math said it would... I should always trust the math!)

Here's the post from the Crochet board: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433578.0

10  Meta blanket - continuous join-as-you-go in Crochet: Completed Projects by fantasticmio on: May 20, 2014 08:29:44 AM
Recently I taught a class at my crochet guild on the continuous join-as-you-go technique I used for my Craftster Anniversary Challenge entry a while back.

During the class, we took four squares and joined them together.  This gave us, essentially, a bigger square.  I wanted to offer the class things they could do with their class samples.  I explained how they could continue on to make a bigger blanket, but I also suggested that you could take these bigger squares and use the technique again to join them all together.

I decided to try that last one, and this was the result.



Well, the middle part is the result.  I cut the yarn and wove the ends in after doing three rounds of edging, but after laying it out, I thought it might be too small.

I counted the groups of dc stitches around the outside and found there was 29 of them.  I don't know why I keep running into prime numbers... they're becoming a real pain in the butt. :-P

I decided that if I added one more round, I'd have 30, which meant I could do three-round squares around the edge.  Since I had that extra round to do anyway, and I wanted the project to portable, I did the three-round square ring separately, joining them as I went.  Then I joined that ring of squares to the main blanket while adding that extra round I needed.  Then I did four more rounds of edging.

I'm going to send this blanket off to Neighbour To Neighbour's layette program.
