Finished Baby Blanket

IMG_3583

 Too long ago, my cousin had a baby and seeing as how I crochet very slowly (and used to have people actively hindering me from doing needlework but thankfully, they go hinder someone else now) I still hope the little one can use it now that it’s done. It’s a very simple blanket with a black border; both acrylic yarn so you can wash the dickens out of it. This took a giant skein of pink yarn so this is a pretty decent dent in my stash!

This one is a gift but eventually I’ll be selling these as well. 🙂

New Needlework!

I’ve been pretty determined about getting rid of my giant yarn stash (it’s frightening, really) and getting to all the projects people have asked me for, so I’ll be posting things for your greedy little eyes to feast on as they’re completed. This is a crochet scarf that I mostly made for shits and giggles. Nobody asked me for it so I’ll probably be selling it if anyone wants it. It took up an entire skein of yarn to I’m happy to say it’s one skein down… Waaaayy too many to go.

 

Thursday Threads – Finished Scarf!

It’s finally done! 😀 I made this scarf for my little demon seed. I started it when she was just a little mush ball. For some perspective, she’s 6 now.

See why I’m making an effort to clear my yarn debts?

Next up is a baby blanket for my cousin’s baby girl. Hopefully, that will be finished before she’s a teenager. :p

Paying off my debts.

A funny thing happens to people when they find out you can do a thing. All of a sudden, everybody wants you to do it for them. And since I’m a people pleaser (me and my shrink are working on that) I keep agreeing to make things for people. This has resulted in what I have called “Yarn Debts.”  I can only crochet or knit at a certain speed but I would still like to get things done so I could finally let go of my guilt.

Here are the projects I’m trying to finish:

This is the progress I’ve made so far and I’ve been working diligently on these before I start anything new. Much like writing more than one story at a time, I am trying to finish what’s started before starting anything else. :p

Till my tendinitis flares up. Then you all get to frigging wait because that shit hurts. >_<
