Yarn Along - May 9, 2012

Joining Ginny for another Yarn Along .

The bane of my existence - the blasted blanket from the Bernat Mystery Crochet Along - added another row of completed motifs on to the finished blanket.  I was seriously hoping that 4 rows of motifs would be enough and I could finish it.  It's not, I need at least another row - drat!!!

It was driving me nuts.  So, I started a scrap afghan.  Didn't use anywhere near all of my scraps, but I think it turned out nice as a great big Granny square - no piecing together!  It's the perfect size for a lap blanket.

I'm going to give it to my Aunt Janet who just lost her husband, because it's full of my prayers for her.  I was praying the Rosary the entire time I was crocheting it for her.

As for what I'm reading, I'm just starting Children of the Lamp: The Cobra King of Kathmandu.  I've really been on a fantasy kick and the young adult section of the library is the best place to get the ones that are fantasy and not smutty.

Hope everyone has a great day!


  1. What a lovely idea for your aunt. Lap blankets are really nice for when you need comfort too.

  2. That is the lovely part about hand made gifts. So many loving thoughts are thought while making them. They must be woven into the very fabric.

  3. A giant granny is perfect for sharing loving peaceful thoughts - Lucky Aunt. Totally understand the frustration with the sewing motifs together - I have blocks I finished sometime last year still waiting to be joined!
    Enjoy your hooking.

  4. That is such a great idea...both for using up scraps and such a lovely blanket/gift. I like your troublesome blanket a lot (but know what a pain piecing can be). It's good to take breaks and get inspiration sometimes!
