I need to get more black yarn for my polka dot blanket, so it's on the back burner for now. I need to find a home for my granny stripe blanket; maybe it'll help make it more of a priority.
I have been working on my Stashbuster #3: The Granny Heart Bunting:
If you clicked on the link I gave on Monday, it'll take you to the Ravelry page. But the pattern may seem confusing to some; luckily for us, Sandra at Cherry Heart also provided a wonderful photo tutorial to go with her pattern. So I've been having fun making these.
I've also started Stashbuster #4: Teeny Tiny Hearts but haven't taken any pictures yet. I'm using the same yarn as the Granny Heart Bunting. The pattern can be found over at Attic 24.
And I've started Stashbuster #5: No Beginning Chain Egg Blanket:
While perusing my yarns, I noticed how much baby yarn I've somehow accumulated. I had 4 skeins of Baby Homespun to use, and I remembered seeing this pattern over at Mama's Stitchery Projects.
Seems like a lot, but I'm trying to jumpstart my crochet mojo. It seems to be getting better; I'm still struggling with pattern comprehension, but I also seem to be making less mistakes.
I also made a few dishcloths yesterday and today; number #28 is my favorite.
Thanks for reading!
Dishcloth a Day #25
This one's kinda neat looking; looks as though I cut off the corner of a blanket :-) My stitch count didn't come out the same as the pattern's, but it still looks good.
Dishcloth a Day #26
This one has a nice texture to it. My edging's a little wonky; I'm still struggling with "single crochet evenly around". Without a number, my sides aren't the same.
Dishcloth a Day #27
This was a nice simple pattern with alternating rounds of single crochet and half double crochet. I really love the colors; looks like a swimming pool surrounded by brown tiles.
Dishcloth a Day #28
I was so impressed with the way this one came out. When I first read the pattern, I said "no way". It sounded too complicated. Even when I started on it, I had misgivings. If she hadn't put a great photo tutorial with it, I don't think I would have gotten it. But with her pictures, it was very easy and came out very nice. I may have to keep this one instead of putting it in the gift drawer :-)

This is actually funny. I was unable to do this one. The prompt was Something You Smelled. I don't have a sense of smell, so I couldn't participate in this one :-)

Today's prompt was Soft. This is an extreme closeup of the Homestyle Baby yarn I'm using in my Stashbuster #3 project.
