I'm still here, still hooking and raising my little ones. I just finished this little babe. I love monochromatic blankets!! It was a toddler blanket custom order for a little guys xmas present. I love to see my customers enjoy my creations. I used the "colorful cubes" pattern and used 5 colors (White, Silver, Grey, Charcoal and Black), joined as I went along and crab stitch edging. It was quick and I kinda want to start another for myself.
We have had quite a few BIG changes in our life. We moved from sunny So Cal to the great state of Idaho. Idaho is dear to our hearts cause it is where we started our love story. It is wonderful to be back. The kids are loving it and more than ready for a white Christmas. I am enjoying the cold weather too and hooking up hat after hat and a blanket here and there.
Yesterday we headed up to the mountains to find our tree. It was something I always did as a kid, but have not done in years. The kids loved starting a new holiday tradition with my family. And they didn't mind the coco and doughnuts after either.
Just a snippet from our life the past few weeks. Feeding ducks, playing with kids, and breaking out my knit socks and slippers. It's finally gotten cold here in sunny southern California. Well colder than normal. There are a few different projects on the hook right now. The grey granny squares, a batch of cute hats and working on writing up my "Scrappy Circles" pattern. I have made quite a few of theses in both shapes. I love them. They wip up rather quickly and they are great to use up bits of this and that. Which I love that! So far I have the pattern written for the blocks and joining. Each blanket I made I have added a different edging so I am still working that part out.
My house is full of signs of good play time, cherished memories and a little something special in the works. I am going classic with granny square in fall colors with heather grey. I love grey blankets. It's only two squares and I already love it.
