Scattered projects

I’ve been busy working on a large granny square blanket for our bed… Once it reached a certain size, I started to take a break from it since it’s summer time and it’s pretty warm. I haven’t worked on it in a few days but I have started working on other things but my mind as usual is scattered around and I have scattered projects at different stages of completion. I just started loom knitting something this morning which is unusual for me because I rarely loom knit anymore. It’s usually crochet that i dobecause I can just pick the hook up I don’t have to cast on so many pegs and remember how to do different stitches in crochet. It seems to be a lot faster to me. So I just got a new phone and my case that I ordered online yesterday of course hasn’t arrived yet so until it comes in the mail I decided to loom knit a small sleeve type case for the phone just to protect it. I really like the phone it’s cute… it’s a little bit smaller. It’s smaller than the Moto Z play Droid that I had and I switched to a Google pixel 2. So here’s a picture of the blanket.

In this picture the blanket measured about 47 in wide.

The loom knit sleeve case I’m making isn’t very far along. It’s getting there though. I don’t have a photo of the other little project that I did. It wasn’t really a “project” that was a more of a spur-of-the-moment “hey I’ll make you this little thing you know this pouch”.. it was for my nephew. He collects rocks and stones and my mom had save some really pretty shiny marbley looking stones for him and I had some yarn with me of course and my crochet hook because I was working on a granny square scarf. I had some blue yarn with me and I asked him if he would like me to make him a little drawstring pouch for his stones and he said yeah so I did that. He liked it and I askyhim how big he would like it to be. I’m just doing a bit of this and that.



Bedroom curtains

I started making two curtain panels for our small bedroom window right after making the unicorn pillow and caticorn for our nieces. I had seen this gorgeous varigated yarn used to make a blanket for a king size bed and I was totally in love! I didn’t get the yarn right away but a good while, probably months, I got a few skeins. I took them home thinking I would make something right away. That didn’t happen. I only just decided to make curtains with them several days ago now.

So here’s they are, please lete know if you like them.


Finishing up some presents.

Well, today I added the last ear to the unicorn pillow. Yay! After thinking I was completely done… I remembered that I agreed to add some eyelashes to the unicorn’s eyes to make it look more girly. So that’s the last or rather next to last thing to finish the pillow. I still have to sew on my name on the crocheted by tag.

Here is the pillow, please remember that I didn’t follow a pattern. I just looked at a picture and used that as a guide. 😊

I’m glad to get these finished as soon as I have because of being sick. I wasn’t sure how long that would last and if I’d have the energy or feel well enough to make them.

Now I am feeling better and getting well I’m looking forward to their party next month and seeing them open their presents.

Onto the next project now. I’ll discuss that in my next blog post.



Finished one WIP: little caticorn.

Well, I’ve felt well enough today to work on and thankfully finish the little caticorn for my niece. Now that’s done and I must say only part of it was me following a pattern. So it resembles the one she wanted it to look like. She had design requests and that’s affected how different it looks from the original.


Under the weather.

I wish I had some progress on my wips to share but I’ve been sick for a couple of days now and I am drained and don’t feel like doing anything.😷

I’m hoping that by this coming weekend I’ll be feeling much better because we are going to have a special visitor staying the night with us. On of our nieces that live fairly locally will be here. Looking forward to that happening because she’s been waiting and waiting to stay. I plan on working on my projects tomorrow though and will be working on the horn, hair and ears/face of the caticorn and hopefully I can finish it up tomorrow as well.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my little blog .

Current WIPS

Just in case you’re not aware of this abbreviation, it means ‘multiple works in progress’. Of course you’ll see it without the ‘S’ if someone is referring to just one work in progress.

I’ve seen that so many people are unaware of this and other abbreviations even if they’ve crocheted over 50 years.

There are other abbreviations,but that’s not what this post is about.

I just wanted to show what I’m currently working on. First off we have, what will soon be obvious, a unicorn Pillow.

Our kitty Pepper always helps me when I’m working on things.

My other project is a unicorn cat.

I showed pics from Pinterest to my nieces and they saw they two unicorn type things and I knew I could make them from just looking at them. So, because I have way more yarn and time than I do money to buy them presents right now, I told them they would be made for their birthdays which are days apart in early July.

I always seem to find myself promising to make something and have very little time to make it. I’m sure I can finish them by the time their party rolls around. I do get sidetracked though and I have some health problems, undiagnosed sleep apnea.

Look, I’m not a doctor but sometimes you know you have something without your doctor telling you. Plus, I’m waiting for a sleep study because my doctor already suspects that I have it due to my falling asleep during the day, my weight, etc.

So, I will soldier on and finish these up in time and hope that my daytime dozing doesn’t slow me down too much.


Some of my previous projects.

We all know that the more projects we have going at one time the harder it is to keep up with them all. Taking photos is a great way of keeping track.

I’ve had a bad habit of using store sacks as project bags. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, right? Anyway, I just wanted to share a few things with you that I’ve made and see what you think about them.

These are a few pics I just happened to have access to right away, it isn’t all of them and it’s not the biggest projects.

Will post more pics of other projects soon.
