Like many of you, I have a Pinterest account. It is a great place to keep up with ideas and pictures of things you would like to do in the future. Naturally, I have a crochet blankets board. On it I had collected pictures of blankets incorporating granny squares and the granny version of the ripple stitch.
Finally, someone gave me the excuse to try it out when they asked for a blanket for a man in whatever colors and stitch I wanted to make it in. REALLY! So my husband picked out the yarn and I came up with this.
I work as a school bus driver now and was asked by someone if I could make a scarf they saw on pinterest. After a little playing here is what I came up with. I like it! I used the Little Yellow School Bus pattern by Liz Thorland and put it on a plain black scarf with yellow down the middle for a road. What do you think?
I am thinking about making a blanket for my new king bed. I have found 2 designs that really grab me but can’t decide which one. So I decided to ask for you opinions as to which one is your favorite. I am not looking at the color of the squares since I already have that figured out. I just know what ever I make will be a statement piece and probably draw business in the future.
I have been quiet because I have been very busy working on this blanket and another that I hope to reveal next. This was a custom order for a Maryland Terps using a new crochet technique for me. I found I like making them and will take custom orders for others. If anyone is interested or has any questions they can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
