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.
