Been away for awhile.


I have not had any time to post for a while. I am hoping to get back to writing here soon. My goal for this blog is to keep track of projects and share what I’m working on as I go. I’ve been jumping from project to project lately. My focus has been more on home remodeling instead of crocheting.

I have struggled with the C2C stitch for quite some time.  I have finally figured it out

This worked up beautifully with the c2c stitch.


I cant wait to finish this blanket. I love the self striping of this yarn.  Sadly this yarn has been discontinued.  I am pretty excited to have this in my stash.
