Daughters Afghan

My daughters afghan is finally finished! It seemed to take forever to tuck the ends and snip them. If found a few places where there were squares not fully connected, so I had to remedy that and one somehow began to unravel, so that was fixed as well.

My daughter proudly put it on her πŸ› bed, we discussed that I put the squares the same way and of course she found the one I didn’t fix after affixing it wrong. She told me that was the uniqueness about it. That was sweet but it bugs me. Lol

This is my daughters way of modeling with the blanket. πŸ˜‚ πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ teens *shrugs*

Baby Blue

Since I finished my nephews snoodie and I ran out of yarn to continue my daughters afghan, so I went looking for small projects to do. I saw that I had some soft blue yarn and started to make a granny square and kept going until I ran out. I then used a darker blue to border it.

Another WIP in Progress

I’ve been working on this afghan for my daughter. It was supposed to be to help her anxiety with our move. Our move was this past September and I kept talking with her and a few things I said to her and her new school helped her get over her anxiety, this time.

But Im still working on the afghan and now her kitty 🐱 decided that my lap was the nap spot to be right now. πŸ˜‰

Project on hold for now.

My nephews snoodie is on hold… I played yarn πŸ“ chicken. I was able to finish the body but I didn’t have enough to close the hood or make ears. I had to order more red yarn. I will get it in time to finish before next weekend. We are going back to Houston to visit again and I will be able to give it to him then.

Yarning

Awhile ago I received an email from Red Heart and it had what I thought was an interesting topic. It was about yarning, yes that’s right I said yarning. It defined it, which I thought was cool and true. So here it is.

Yarning (verb): the act of creating something out of yarn while passing the time. Your creations are often filled with personal expression and memories either for yourself or for others. For example, “I was yarning on my road trip this past weekend and made these fun, fingerless gloves.”

You could be yarning in the car, while waiting in line, watching a football game, or binge watching your favorite show. Every creation tells the story of what you are doing while yarning.

Surprise for Me

We are in Houston again this weekend visiting family and my sweet darling husband as always keeping me on my toes. Yet again he surprised me. He said we were going to a hobby shop for stuff he wanted to go look at…ok sure. We end up driving up to a store called Twisted Yarns. It was pricey but it had what I would call exotic yarn and it all was very nice. I bought the above to make atleast one if not two cowls.
