a real life finished blanket!

I had some crappy internet troubles again last week (so close to switching providers), so I couldn’t post about the projects I got finished. I feel like I have been so terrible at finishing off projects, blankets especially, that I was pretty excited that I finished pretty close to when I wanted them done.

I was addicted to this blanket I crocheted using Caron Cakes. I think I would like to make this pattern again but with different yarn. I’d also make it much bigger, this one ended up 45X45 inches, definitely not big at all. My oldest likes it for curling up under when she’s on the couch though, so it’s being used!

It's done! This was a fun one to put together 😊 Each section is a full Caron Cake, I used the Rainbow Sprinkles colorway. I would happily crochet this type of blanket again! The pattern is from @ratschebutsch under the #ratschebohohippieblankietutor

The pattern for the blanket can be found under the hashtag #ratschebohohippieblankietutorial on instagram. I used a skein of Caron Cakes in the Rainbow Sprinkles colorway for each section of the blanket, I had very tiny leftovers from three of them. For the border, I used almost an entire skein of white Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn. The pattern for the border is free and can be found here.

Fresh off the needles to start the week! pattern: Socks on a Plane yarn: @hawthornandwool in Drift #knittersofinstagram #socktawk #hawthornandwool #socksonaplane #craftastherapy

I also managed to get my socks finished! The pattern is Socks on a Plane and it’s free on ravelry. I knit this pattern once before but gifted the finished socks, so I’m really happy I now I have a pair for myself. I love knitting this pattern, the cable is simple enough that this move pretty quick off the needles. Yarn is by Hawthorn & Wool in the Drift colorway, a local to me yarn. The dyer owns a shop in a town close to me, I visit it as often as I can, it’s beautiful. She’s a florist and does beautiful arrangements, I haven’t got one because my allergies are crazy rough but I have gotten a couple plants from her, I will suck it up at some point, her arrangements are really that gorgeous.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got today. It’s grey and chilly out, so it’s making my brain feel a bit foggy. Hope the weather is sunnier where you are! Thanks for stopping in!

  1. Your socks are like blueberries being squished into one’s ravenous mouth underneath a clear blue sky! This blanket rocks! It was fun seeing it evolve on IG. The pom pom border is totally cute; how patient you were to hook that up.
