Confetti Tote Bag

A bag to tote my yarn for wip’s with plenty of color. A wide base, so skeins fit in comfortably – can’t have my yarn being uncomfortable! I used leftover yarn for lots of colorful stripes. The finished bag measures approximately 22″ w x 11″ h.

Mitered Granny Square v2.1

My current work in progress. I have been thinking about a new mitered blanket for some time.  I was inspired by some vintage ones I had seen where each motif abutted the others without a border around.  I liked the look of that.  I tried making them in single or double crochet rows same as the ones I had seen, but didn’t hit on anything that really satisfied me. Every now and then I would see another on the web somewhere and I would want to make one again.

I ended up with a variation of my mitered granny square. I did some tweaking of the pattern so it worked more neatly, which is needed since I won’t have the border around each square to hide any untidiness. I like the results!

Granny Square Hearts ♥

I ♥ Granny Hearts!  The small one is a nice applique, the large one makes a nice coaster.  They are so cute together!  The beginning is slightly different for each heart.  Quick to make up for Valentine’s Day in one or more colors.
