    Yarn Crafts and Arts!

    What are you working on? What skill do you wish you could detangle?

    I want to tat some drink coasters so I can empty my water glass and place it upside down so it’ll dry. But I’ve never tatted.

    Here’s a thing I’m making. I’ve been working on it for many years. I do a square or two, then put it away for a while, then do a few more. I might finish it this winter.

    It’s crochet, pretty thick and heavy, sized for a lap blanket.

    OOOOH that is outstanding. Looking forward to pics of the finished product.

    Tonight I paused the xmas scarf projects in order to finish off the cardigan I made for my niece. It was terrible work and the yarn made for a heavy sweater. I wanted it to be light and fluffy but the yarn is too heavy. I was going to frog it and make something better, but my niece visited today and tried in on and she loves it as it is. It fits almost perfectly but I'm giving it an edge in tunisian crochet to add width so she can wrap it better and it will be cozier, plus the collar opening was a bit too wide. She even loves the mistakes I pointed out. I'll post pics later.

    Contemplating on that lap blanket above whether I join the squares with blue yarn (meaning I may have to make fewer squares) or join with a contrast color like dusty rose or ivory. The blocks are about 10 inches square.

    One of the sad artefacts of taking years on a project is that there’s no way to get more yarn.

    Pics from my crochet and knitting projects for the last year and a half. I removed some duplicates, but it's still multiple photos per project but still a lot more work than I thought I'd done in this amount of time.
