ERRATA: Hills & Valleys 12″ Square

This has been posted on my ravelry group as well.   The PDF on ravelry has been updated as well so you may want to go to your library & update it there as well.

Hills & Valleys have been updated. There where a few spots that the numbers where wrong but not enough to totally screw up the pattern, etc. Below are the fixes:

HOW IT WAS WRITTEN:
Round 2: ch1, * sc in next st, hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, tr in next st, ch4 * 4 times. Join with a sl st into 1st sc. Finish Off (4sc, 4hdc, 8dc, 4tr, 4 ch4 sp)
HOW ITS WRITTEN NOW:
Round 2: ch1, * sc in same st as joining, hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, tr in next st, ch4 * 4 times.

Option 2: if your square is 11 1/2” work a sc in each st around, working 3sc in each ch2 sp.

Making Blankets

I have 4 more blankets that I am making.  They will be Christmas gifts eventually.  They are all in the beginning stages so not much to see yet.


Lotus Moon Blanket
I was going to use the Lotus Moon Tiles pattern.  I was actually dreading making the bits & bobs that went with it.  With that I decided to just make the Lotus Moon Square pattern instead.  I will make 12 squares and add to it as needed for the size needed.  There will be 4 different flowers – ocean/soft navy, cherry red/burgandy – those 4 colors will make up the 4 flowers.  I will need 3 in each ‘color scheme’.

 


Neon Stripes Blanket
First I need to say I will need 4 more skeins of the Neon Stripes color way to make the blanket at least 56 inches tall.  There will be 7 ‘panels’ of 15 rows.  Each panel will have 1 row of black and 14 rows of neon stripes.  A skein of neon stripes is 14 rows exactly.

 

 


A Pinkish Blanket
I found 5 colors that go well together – 3 pinks, a brown, and a black color.  I am going to make 20 different 12 inch squares and add borders were needed for size.  I might keep this one despite it being pink.  I love how the colors go together.

 

 


Sophies’ Universe
I haven’t touched this in over a month I believe. If I would just keep working on it I would get it done in no time.  It’s just so big and rather irritating to me.  I am going to work it until it’s squared.  If I remember right it was a few weeks of clues before the final clue I was going to work to.  While I love the look of it I doubt I’ll ever make another.

We Are Back! And Other Things…

Finally we are back.  Wasn’t much down time – only a week at most.  But it is nice to be back.  I also have more space then I previously did which makes it so I can do more.

While I was not playing WoW or able to have a website I got a few things done that I started. The most important is the Darkmoon Faire Blanket.

It’s done! #365crafting #crafting365 #crochet #crochetersofinstagram

I used 1 & 1/4 of all 4 colors. It ended up being 53 inches wide by 57 inches long before the crocodile stitch border. I have at least 2 more blankets to make for Christmas gifts. I have already started on one. I am doing a simple Lotus Moon Tiles blanket. The center will be warm brown, the petals will be a variation of 2 colors of blue, the leaves will be the green used in the DMF blanket, and the background will be in a soft white color. As soon as I start putting it together I will blog about it.

I also got my pillow cover done. I decided I needed to put the ends together with a kitchner stitch. Never again! It is done however. The fabric I knitted ended up being rather tight as intended. Last thing I need is for the cover to move around while I am sleeping. It is a pet peeve of mine and the reason I despise pillow cases. However here is the pictures of said pillow cover completed.

Darkmoon Faire Blanket

You know you play way too much World of Warcraft when colors of yarn you pick up remind you of places in the game.  In this case the colors I picked up remind me of the Darkmoon Faire. I bought the blue, green, and yellow originally to make a boy baby blanket.  I have no reason to make it but I wanted to. Besides when Caron One Pound yarn is $6.99 you really do not pass it up.  It hardly ever goes on sale.  Normally it is $9.99 a skein and in my opinion too much money for a pound of yarn. Yes I am cheap.

Here is the blanket at 50 inches wide and 50 inches long.

Yes you can see my dirty socks, pillow cases, trash, bed, etc.  Lets just ignore that.  What you see is my DMF Blanket at the 50 inch mark.  The middle square I designed on a whim when I decided I needed an 18 inch square for the middle.  There is no purple in any of the squares so far except on the borders because I decided to add that color later when I realized adding it would make it so DMF like.  I want to make it at least 60 inches wide.  The length will be more then 60 inches as of right now.  The border will be made up of the crocodile stitch to simulate flags.  Some people call it buntings.

If you want to see what squares I used to make up the 12 squares surrounding the bigger middle square you can do so on my Ravelry project page.  I also am trying to put as many notes in there as I can for the ‘borders’ or ‘sections’.  I am also pretty sure this will end up a Christmas gift for one of the few wonderful people in my life.  Not sure who yet though.

New Stuff & News

You may have noticed crochetjessica.com has changed yet again. It has.  That is because money is tight. I do not have the money to pay for web space currently.  I plan to change this as soon as I am able though.

All my designs can still be found here if that is what you are looking for.

I want to do things I used to do on my site that eventually felt like a chore. Meaning I want to blog about my crafty goodness.  I use Instagram for my photos now and that could prove to be irritating.  However they do offer the option to embed photos into webpages or blog posts.

I want to be able to blog once in awhile as well.  I do not see the point in blogging on a regular basis.  Like what changes I made to a square or what I figured out for a round to make it easier for me to read.  I don’t always remember to put those in my Ravelry notes.

 

We will see what happens. I hope I can afford some web space soon.
