Making Coordinating Squares

For the past few weeks I have been thinking about making coordinating squares for some of my square designs. Meaning making a ‘plain’ square that you could use to make a blanket with the original design. I decided to start with Roadside Flower. This coming week I’ll be adding the coordinating square for Roadside Flower. It will have no petals yet it will have the same stitch count on each side of the square.

I would like it if you can help me decide which square to make a coordinating square for next.

January & February 2018 Finished Objects

A few years ago every Friday I would post about the knitting and/or crochet projects I had finished that week. Back then there was usually 1 project done – and usually a pair of socks. I got burnt out on posting every Friday along with knitting a pair of socks every week. Besides I have I think nearly 40 pairs of socks – who really needs more? Not I. I decided since I am taking a lax stance at posting a project photo weekly this year on Instagram that I would post my finished projects every 2 months.

Without further wait here is what I have done for January & February 2018. They link to the Ravelry project page that has all the project information on.

Ravelry has a challenge for 2018! I have joined! It is to challenge yourself to finish projects. I have challenged myself to finish 11 projects in 2018 (I will add more if I hit 11 before the end of the year). As of this post I have done 5 of 11.

PATTERN UPDATE: Sundry Baby Blanket

Sundry Baby Blanket

After a few months of working on version 3 – this pattern has been updated! I don’t have everything I updated on this pattern but I do know a few things where missing & a few things where repeated. I have added the missing parts & removed the repeated parts. The updated PDf was over the limit you could upload to Ravelry so I broke it down to 6 parts. Each PDF starts with pdf#_ This lets you know in which order they go in. I hope this also helps with data usage – so you only have to download a smaller PDF for whatever part of the blanket you are working with instead of the whole PDF which is far larger. Eventually there will be a text only PDF – the only photo for that PDF will be of the pattern picture showing what the pattern is. Please go to you Ravelry Library & update or buy it now.
