Weekly Wednesday WIP Roll Call; ep. 20

Where we hold ourselves to account for the obscene number of ongoing projects we may or may not have.

Evening! It’s just me this evening, as Nicole is away visiting family.

I completed the Caravan Granny Square Blanket this week. I’m so pleased! Now all I need is the caravan to go with it. My parents had a caravan when I was growing up so I have a lot of fond memories and nostalgic feelings; I would buy one in a heartbeat if I had the money or the space to keep it! 

A Tada post is in the works, which will take you through the process I followed to make this cheery blanket, but in the meantime, the above link will take you to my Ravelry project page for more details.

I also put the finishing touches on Baby Groot – isn’t he sweet? He’s from a free pattern by Twinkie Chan – find it here, on her blog. I left out a little of the detail, notably the embroidered mouth. I felt he had enough expression in his little face without a mouth; what do you think?

In other news, I had a play with the squares I’ve amassed for the Pixel Scrappy Blanket, and made the decision to remove the yellow/red/orange /brown squares. This leaves me with a much more soothing melange of pinks, purples, blues and greens. I’m really liking the new pared-down colour scheme, but it does create a bit of a setback – I now have only about 2/3 the number of squares I had before! Better keep crocheting, I guess. It’s nice to have more of a focus though.

…and now, a little more thought-out.


The rejected squares will go to some future project; don’t worry, they won’t go to waste!
