On The Hook

Is it Wednesday already? I guess I need to set a schedule out with alarms and alerts to remind myself. It may take awhile to get back in the groove of regular posting.

This week I started my Moorland Blanket, a pattern and crochet-along being offered by Lucy at Attic24.

As soon as I saw her initial post on this project, I was enamoured with the colours and the stitch pattern used, and I ordered the yarn pack through Wool Warehouse in the UK. 15 skeins of yarn.

I did a small sample to get the right hook size and settled with a 3.75mm, which is the same size I’m using for my Granny Stripe Blanket.

I decided to make mine a bit narrower… it will be 42″ instead of 48″ and I started with an initial chain of 161 stitches instead of 181.

I’m enjoying getting into the groove of this pattern and watching the colours progress. I’m in the greens, which frankly I haven’t seen a lot of around here lately. It’s refreshing to see so much green!

The PussyHat Project. I’ve completed 7, including one for me out of handspun and some of my hand dyed fingering weight doubled. I stopped by the yarn shop yesterday and bought a few skeins of discounted bulky pink yarn and have another one going. I’ll keep knitting these until we march!

I’m still working on my Feelin’ Groovy socks. As boring as the process is, I do love the crazy striping of the yarn and that it is a super easy project to throw in my purse and knit when I have a few moments to spare. So it is nice to have something like this on the go. And I can see that there is progress being made.

I didn’t work on my Granny Stripe¬†blanket this week, but I did get it out and into my view. It’s currently 42″ wide and 32″ long. So I have quite a bit still to go on it and I love the bright cheerful colours of this.

Finished: My Tea Cozy Poncho! I was only a couple of rows from the end and I’ve already worn it to a recital on the weekend. I need to get a photo of me wearing it, but here is Josephine..
