WIP Wednesday

I'm finally settling back into a regular rhythm. I've had some hooky time this week, done some stitching, and am finally making it around to all of your blogs.

Here are starts #13-14 for the Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January February Challenge:
#13: To Do List
#14: Socks and Underwear
Both of these are Lizzie Kate charts. I've developed a serious addiction to her designs.

I'm working on the Mini Rings of Change CAL this week (I'm a bit behind), but I wanted to show you all the lovely progress being made by the other fellow crocheters.

I forgot to ask permission to repost Zana's progress pictures, so you'll have click this link to go see her lovely progress.
Everyone's doing so well! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's rounds 8-10 this week. And remember: NO STRESSING if you're behind or haven't started. This a Turtle Crocheter CAL; no stress allowed.

I'm still adding a square a day to my 2015 blanket.
Right now, it looks like a scarf because I'm still on row 1. Because 365 doesn't break into two numbers, I've decided to make it 360 squares (24 rows of 15) and then add five rounds of a border (simple rounds!). It's going to be huge, but I'm excited. I'm having fun choosing random colors; I just reach in the scrap bin and grab.

Off to start dinner and change out the laundry.
Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)

  1. Great new starts Kate. I love Lizzie Kate designs. I just sent you an email about the CAL. I have 9 rows done. Your square a day blanket is pretty but boy is that going to be huge and heavy. Maybe you should make 2 blankets out of the squares. A his and hers,.
