how to survive night shift :: the tale of a colourful shawl from block-a-day

from front of chair

There are many knitting projects stuffed into many baskets around Bootville.  All started with much enthusiasm.  All still loved.  And oh I am looking forward to finishing and wearing them.  But there are weeks when carefully knitting a sleeve on double pointeds with regular decreases is just too much like work.  Let alone unravelling an Icelandic yoke to reknit with less rounds.  Oy!  That one fills me with dread.

So when I had my first block of night duty, I needed something warm, colourful and comforting with which to busy my hands and provide some sort of normal during the ...

In the Mail Monday: Knit Picks from Becca's Crazy Projects

If you haven't shopped with Knit Picks you totally should.  They have great yarn at great prices.  Right now they have Felici Sock back for a limited time.  It is taking all my strength of will to resist buying some of this yummy self-striping yarn.
Last month they had a sale on many of their knit and crochet tools.  I needed a longer cable for my needle set and wanted a set of crochet hooks.  Both were on sale with the added bonus of a free ball of Chroma.  I couldn't pass up the free yarn!

Doily Wallart from Made To Treasure

Another doily from the Mary Wrest Extra special doilies.


This is made out of unbranded no. 20 thread in variegated color.
Finished into a 17" doily.

I was addicted to Mary Wrest patterns as soon as i got the book. 
I just loved the detailing in her pattern. 
This was my 8th doily from the book...and the last one that I made from this book.

Hope to make some of them again using different colors..

I was looking out for options to display my doily. 

Some of them are kept for framing...

While browsing for ideas, i saw the ...

African flower saga ends from Made To Treasure

Clearing my WIP one by one. ..
This is not a very old WIP...just started an year ago,
 and went to back seat while i was busy with my priority...

Now i finished it into a 75"x 30" throw. 


Made out of 72 African flower motifs using cotton yarn.

 I lost the count of yarn balls. It is 50gm=125m yarn ball. 
Now the throw weighs pretty heavy...I didn't weigh it though, 
but i think it should be around a Kg...hahaha.
I'm sure people who are not into this hobby might laugh at this...

Hello! from Monkey's on the Porch

You weren’t thinking that I had forgotten again had you?  I most certainly had not!  However, there is still no quilting news to report.  Boo!  This week will pretty much be out for sewing time.  Why?  Well, the Small Blonde has a summer camp but it is in the afternoon which really interferes with Little Red’s nap time.  So, by the time we get home from camp and Little goes down for a nap and the Big Guy gets home from work.  So that pretty much shoots any quality time alone in the craft room.  At least is ...

Crochet Hexagons - Q2 Finish a long from Wendy's Quilts and More

Is it a rug? or is it a blanket? My friends in the UK tell me they only use the word "rug" to refer to something on the floor. We do call mats on the floor rugs, but we also call small blankets rugs.  So I would call this a rug.



Anyway, it's finished.  On my Q2 Finish along list here, I said that I wanted to make a smaller crochet rug for my knees at night. At that stage I thought I might do the Cosy Ripple pattern from Attic 24, but then I started to see some ...

Don’t worry! from Monkey's on the Porch

I didn’t spend all that time making sure I kept up with this only to abandon it later.  I don’t have much to report however.  Not much quilting going on the last few days and todays crafting was Lego’s.

It’s okay, you can laugh.  Small Blonde is into Lego’s.  Not heavily, but he does enjoy building.  To that end he has a “few” Lego sets that he has put together.  However, he has modified, disassembled, dropped, and otherwise mangled a few of them.  Honestly, I was getting kind of tired of stepping on the loose ...

Yarn Along 6/10 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm




I should call it books along cause that's pretty much about all I have to share of what I have accomplished these past two weeks.
I did finish one Spa Washcloth and did a few more Make-Up Remover Pads but I mainly listen to a good many books on my drive from Northern California to Northeast Oklahoma... a 1900 mile drive. Since I was by myself it takes a little longer, 3 days. So in 3 days I was able to finish "The Girl On The Train"
Then finish "The Blue Zone Solution"
Started and finished "Crying Blood"
And ...

Pat Sloan: Do You Crochet? Life with Pat from Pat Sloan's Blog

So many of us have other hobbies besides quilt making.. no really.. I hear some do! The other day a group of designers was talking about how we take a break, what do we do, and many knit or crochet. I decided to go get my yarn out.. it's been a long time since I did anything with yarn.

Pat sloan crochet 1

My great grandmother and great aunt crocheted a zillion afghans blankets. Some with granny squares, then as their hands could not do the intricate work, they went to ripple versions using variegated yarn.

They crocheted ALL the time.. so I ...

Some Crochet to Show from Alsha's Space

Well, here are some of the things that I have been madly crocheting this month. I finished some earlier but haven't posted them here yet.


So here we are, a block blanket for my granson for his birthday - a lot belated I'm afraid but I also can say better late than never!!  There was just so much work involved with this one, and I'm proud that I finally got it finished - it was a little dicey there for a while because I got to be so bored with doing the same thing over and over and over ...

My First (and Only) Crochet Project from Peachy Pages

Last year I was admiring an afghan made by my friend, Debbie.  She told me the pattern was called Leaping Stripes by Tamara Kelly (on Moogly) and it was really easy!  The problem was, I had no idea as to how to read a pattern.  I haven't done any crocheting since I was a young girl (and it was all done by mimicking my nana's stitches), so Debbie tried to teach me how to mimick her stitches.  Well, I tried.  I made several rows over several weeks and got about 18" done by the time I showed it ...
