No New Projects ‘Til You Finish The Old Ones!

think this is all I’ve got going on right now, lol. Five different projects at once isn’t too too much, is it?

#1~ Here is a blanket I’ve been (off again and on again) working on for over a year and a half now. It’s being made for myself and my husband as a wedding gift to ourselves (we were married in February of 2014). He buys the yarn, I do the work…only fair right? I am kinda following a pattern I found on the Red Heart website (Crochet Ripple Throw). I added more width to it and am using just one strand of yarn rather than doubling up. All the colors are Red Heart Super Saver: Blue Suede, Black, Aran, Hunter Green, Claret, Coffee, Medium Thyme and Warm Brown.  It’s a combination of my color choices and my husband’s color choices.

#2~ A granny square Christmas stocking. I’ve got 6 squares made out of 16. It looks a little bit dark in the photo, thanks to the awful indoor lighting and not so good phone camera, but the green is Hunter Green, and the red is Cherry Red, and then plain white too. All are Red Heart Super Saver. The pattern can be found hereIt is suppose to be made with bulky weight yarn, but I don’t often follow the rules, lol.

#3~ A granny square doll blanket. I posted about this project previously. I haven’t really gotten too far along with it since then. You can view my previous post about it hereAgain, it’s all Red Heart Super Saver.

#4~ A beanie hat…so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to leave it as it is, or add some ear flaps or even make a matching pair of wristers or fingerless mittens. It’s my own pattern in the making, very simple, and I will share it here with you when it’s done. It would be good for a beginner. Almost two years ago I bought this yarn and used it to make a large scarf. A few months ago I decided to take the scarf apart and make something new with it, and so this is what it’s become. I’ve been trying to remember what type of yarn I used, but can’t. I am pretty certain it’s by Bernat. It’s bulky, acrylic and very very soft,  and it whips up really quickly too. It could be Bernat Softee Chunky, but after searching online I can’t find the correct color. I think the color has the word “Ivy” in it, but whilst conducting my search I am beginning to believe that this color could indeed be discontinued.

#5~ Last but not least, a set of four baby hats. This is also my own pattern, which I will share with you here once it’s completed. I posted about it in my most recent post A Busy Week. The top photo shows size 3-6 month (Aran) and size 6-12 month (Frosted Green), and the bottom photo shows size 0-3 month (White) and size 12 months+/Toddler (Claret). All are made with Red Heart Super Saver.

So, there you have it, folks! I keep telling myself “No new projects until you finish the old ones!”, but it never seems to work out that way. With so many patterns at my fingertips here on the world wide web, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have just one project on the go!
