O.K. Here are two new projects I found to do with yarn. I am going to start two back to back. The first one is a baby blanket. I was at JoAnn's on Monday and I found some yarn on sale. It's was $.97 a skein. There was a free pattern on the label so I decided right on the spot to make the blanket.
This is the yarn I purchased. I bought an extra skein just in case. If I have one left over I will make something return it and buy some yarn for my next project.
The blanket is worked over with a V-stitch pattern. It's very simple and I hope to have it done soon. Here is a link to the instructions Lion Brand Homepun Baby Baby Blanket
I started this Tuesday evening while watching television. I already used one skein of yarn and I am on row twelve. It's very easy. I can't wait to finish it and move on to my next project. I think I will be able to complete it very soon.
Here is the second project. It's a crochet cropped jacket using Moda Dea yarn. It's the same stitch as the baby blanket, Isn't it beautiful! I love it a lot. I think this would be a great first try at couture for adults for me. I am quite excited. I haven't purchased the yarn yet for this one. I plan on doing it next week when JoAnn's has Firefly sale.
Please wish me tons of luck on this project. I am hard to size so it will be a challenge to get it done. I am actually going to test my gauge on this (something I never do with baby items). I can't wait to go back and find the yarn for this one. Here is a link to the pattern Moda Dea Crochet Cropped Jacket
Well I have started this week off with some fun projects. I can't wait to finish them.
Wish me tons of luck!
