Sailing Along in 2014

Sailing Along 2014

Today’s Square: Sailing Along
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Janie Herrin
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS yellow, royal, pumpkin; mystery yarn off white.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I made this square back in 2012. It’s fun to revisit squares after a year or so. I changed the last round of HDC to SC to keep it at 6 inches. I like this year’s version better. From the book “50 Fabulous Crochet Squares”.

Today’s Square: Granny Square 42
Size: 8.5 x 3.5
Pattern By: Anne Halliday
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS yellow, royal, pumpkin; mystery yarn off white.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: An interesting rectangle. The construction is clever and it has texture without being too puffy. The center two rounds by themselves would make a cool bracelet, a curtain tieback or some kind of trim. From the book “99 Granny Squares to Crochet”.

The Layout

Flower Blanket Layout 1

After laying out my hexagons for the Modern Flower Blanket, I decided that I would like to have an additional row top and bottom. This means I need to make another 12 motifs. That won’t take too long. I’m liking how it’s turning out overall!

Final Seven–Maybe

Flower Blanket 11

Here’s the last of the 79 hexagons called for in the Modern Blanket of Flowers I’m making. I need to lay them out and see what I think of the size. I used a smaller hook than called for so I might make more motifs. I still have some variegated left, believe it or not!

Hot Pad vs Pot Holder

My mom expressed a desire for some pot holders for her kitchen. I happened to have some suitable cotton on hand to make some. She likes frou frou things so I thought I’d look up some fancy pot holder patterns on Ravelry. This led me to the conclusion that many people don’t know the difference between a hot pad and a pot holder. Either that or they’ve never actually cooked anything.

Clue: if your design has LARGE HOLES IN IT, it will be useless as a pot holder. You might as well grab the dang pan with your bare hand. Though on the bright side, the resulting burn from the holey pot holder will be an interesting pattern…

Lots of Ginseng

Flower Blanket 10

Seventeen more hexagons for my Modern Blanket of Flowers. Only 7 more to go. I might make more because I’m using a smaller hook than called for, so my motifs are a little small. I’ll see what it looks like. The yarn is Loops & Threads Impecable in Ginseng. The color is off because the batteries are dead on my camera and I got the bright idea of using the camera on the iPod Touch. Could be better. But at least I got a photo!
