Five

I have started the biggest project I have ever done as of the 9th of September. 

I am going to need around 47 skeins of yarn give or take just for the 476 granny squares…..
I have 95 days and counting to finish….

I have designed this blanket….that is going to be epic….

So far I have made 41/476 squares. I have a 3 day weekend coming up with nothing to do. 

I hope to complete at least 119/476 by this monday morning. 

I think it is doable, I just need more yarn I have gone through 4 skeins thus far. 

 

Just thought I’d let you know I’ve not fallen off the face of the earth, just working on this, and a few other projects including a beautiful doily, and possibly my first commission of a super grover hat. 

Reporting to you, extremely tired, and apparently now sick (thanks to my fellow co-workers) 

This is Shara

Signing off. 

Expect updates haha 

Four

I have received 2 packages from Hobby Lobby since we last spoke. The first containing a set of 4 circle looms, the second containing 2 new crochet hooks, 1 package of crochet hook grips and 2 balls of new thread, sizes 30 and 10. My new hooks are .75mm and 1.5mm!

I’m excited to try the smaller sizes!!

Especially after finding this etsy shop!!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/SuAmi

 

I have also completed, then started a few projects. 

Completed a baby sized really thick winter hat. And what with the lack of babies around here I modeled the hat on something else for my picture…..

Yes…..my panda….

I thought it was cute anyways!! 

I have started a doily and an adult sized hat to match that scarf I made previously…OH and another really pretty scarf to be pictured later! But now I’m considering starting another doily so I can take advantage of the new additions to my stash! 

Haven’t really decided yet…

I have been extremely tired as of late though, therefore getting a lot less done. Alongside that work has finally become work (not that I was complaining before) so no time there anymore. 

 

Upcoming is a craft show that my grandma attends and sets up at every year and I am really looking forward to that!! I am thinking about and hoping to increase the number of projects and see if I can sell some things. 

If nothing else I can sell what I have and prep for next year. 

AND I can paint faces and get a few extra bucks! I do a mean spongebob…..though I don’t even know if that’s what’s in now a days….does that mean I’m getting old? Because I’m only 23 and that’s not cool…..

 

 

on that note, I am really tired….Going to bed. Nice catching up!
