Yarn Along

6:53 AM

I am once again joining in the weekly Yarn Along.  Books and Knitting!  Two of my favorite things!  This week I finished the second Aviatrix for Corrine's friend Connor.  I worked on the Radiating Star Blanket.  I decided to do the extended pattern since I used smaller needles (as that is what I had on hand).  Unfortunately I need to buy a longer circular set and haven't had time.  So I put that blanket down and picked up and old stand by.

This is a baby blanket that I started crocheting about two years ago for a friends baby.  I started it with stash yarn.  It is completely random.  I crochet a row or two in whatever color I pull out of the bag.  I like the way it looks and will finish it one day.  Since there is really no pattern or plan to it, I'll work on it until I decide it is big enough.  I'll donate it to the Linus Project since the intended recipient got a purchased gift instead.

I have not read a thing this week.  We have had busy days and by the time I sit down I'm ready for bed.  Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. I love scrap projects! I'm sure your blanket will make someone very happy.

  2. Using up what you have on hand without a pattern really has made you a beautiful blanket. The blanket will be something anyone would treasure.
    Happy Yarn Along.

  3. I love the idea of donating a blanket to Linus project. That is on my to do list. I hope you get some time to read this week :)

  4. The Linus Prject is a very worthwhile cause. God bless you for doing this.

  5. Love the Aviatrix hat pattern--such an easy, yet functional knit. Love how you're doing the Project Linus blanket. We received a beautiful quilt from them when our newborn son ended up in the hospital; I hope to return the favor many times over someday!

  6. What a beautiful blanket that will be cherished by a deserving little one someday :)

  7. I seriously love that blanket. I love the randomness of the pattern and colours. And I love that it will be donated to keep someone snuggly warm. You are inspiring.
