Color Me Reckless

Cuddling Under Blankets

CrochetLisa Seyfried

The eastern bit of the US has had a good bit of winter storms lately.  Although, in Virginia, we've had less snow than the rest but got a good helping of polar vortex to go with it.  It makes it really difficult to go to work when you have to bundle up in every layer possible just to walk to the bus! If only teleporting was invented yet... The good news is that I've had a lot of time to work on some crochet projects!

Latest Projects - Color Me Reckless

My crochet mood blanket is coming along nicely.  30 squares really makes it seem like a blanket and less like a bunch of squares stitched together! I'm really loving how the colors are coming together on that one.

The blanket for the guest room is also coming along.  This one I do in spurts because it's hard to keep my attention on just the two colors, over and over.  But I love the feel and weight of it.

My family came to visit this last weekend, and it made me realize how few blankets I actually had in the house! So I started on a new diagonal blanket, using up some of my medium weight yarn. I love the colors and how they seem to come together.

I've been working on the Moogly crochet along - my first square came out well, but the second one is a bit...ripple-y.  I think I have a few extra stitches in there that will require some puzzling out.  I've learned through this crochet along that I make really small, tight stitches! I've had to add a few rows to each just to make them come out the right size.

Finally, I've had time to work on items for my Etsy shop! I have some new soap saver bags and a few new face scrubbers to get photographed and written up for the shop.  I love how quickly these all work up - the only downside is then having to wait for the right light to photograph them!

Have you been working on anything new because of the weather?
