My goodness I knew it had been a long time since I'd written, but six weeks is ridiculous.
My March/April has been filled with people coming to visit, catching up with friends and generally playing. Which means not a lot of quality crochet time. But it's been so nice.
Also, instead of working on a lot of other people's patterns, I actually managed to hit on a couple of designs of my own that I really like, and for the past few weeks I've been a hat- and scarf-making factory! I wanted to sell things on Etsy that I had designed myself (to insure that I don't step on anyone's toes), and I wanted to focus on this beautiful spring/early summer time of year. I finally I think have enough to stock a good store, shot some pictures of scarves this weekend and should get hat pics in the coming days, so I should be opening shop soon! I'm really excited.
Speaking of original designs, my first-ever scarf pattern is being worked on by my friend Celeste, you can click on this post and scroll down to get a sneak peak! (I'm a little late noticing this, but the picture made me so excited!!)
Hasn't been too much else, except that I finished the blanket I was working on for Project Linus:
It is the "Baby Starghan" that can be found here. Last time I donated a blanket to Project Linus, the organizer told me that they were really in need of blankets for boys and older kids. I thought this might be unisex enough for anyone, and I liked the colors, it looks cheerful to me. Not sure how in love with the design I am, actually, just because it's pretty impractical as a blanket, and I'm afraid it's not quite big enough for a bigger kid. But hopefully someone will like it.
I put the blanket on Shrek to get an idea of the size, as Shrek is sized (although not exactly proportioned) like an average toddler:
Um and yes I do own a giant stuffed Shrek doll. You wanna make somethin of it?
That's all from this busy girl. Will have the link to my etsy shop, accompanied by lots more pictures, soon!
