Do you ever spend so much time crocheting that when you try to put down your hook you can't? That is what happened to me the other night so I needed to take a day off from crocheting. I have still made some good progress, as you can see by the stacks of daisies below. I have actually managed to make 5 more since this picture was taken.
I have joined Ginny's Yarn Along, so yarn work must be accompanied by reading. Of course it is summer, so reading is a must any way.
I am about to start reading First Comes Love by Whitney Lyles. This is the last book that I picked up from the library exchange. I will need to make a library trip later this week to stock up on reading selections.
I just finished High Meadow by Joan Wolf. This is a novel that is probably considered a romance but certainly touched on some deeper topics and emotions. I will definitely be looking for some more of this author's books.
Here is my most recently finished crochet project .
It is a baby blanket for the daughter of my daughter's former soccer trainer and his wife. Here are some close-ups.
The pattern is from a small baby blanket pamphlet that I have had for many years. It called for worsted weight yarn, but I used Bernat Softee baby weight yarn. The feel of this yarn is exquisite. I had to add on one extra repeat of the colors to get the proper length. I felt the lighter weight was better for the spring/summer. This was such an easy pattern to work. I loved working with all the color changes. I was able to mark my progress by the stripes which makes any project seem to go faster.
Thanks for stopping by!
