I’ve been knitting and crocheting a lot again. After taking some time off from squares, I started the 2017 Moogly CAL, despite not finishing the 2015 one. I only have a few square left of that one, and I thought maybe I’d just do a few squares I really liked towards the end of 2017, and then piece both blankets together at the same time. Of course, I have to actually do the squares this time around. Like…all of them this time.
I went with a purple color scheme this time around, though I have another idea, depending on my mood. I used a light purple, and a dark purple, as well as black and gray. I wanted a silver, but couldn’t find a good silver in the same weight (at least, not without having to order it online. I was much too impatient to do that.) I’ll probably piece them together in a white. I used Loops and Threads Impeccable in Amethyst, Lavender, Black and True Grey.
So far, the squares have been relatively easy, which I’m thankful for. Too complicated, and it starts to be less fun, unless I happen to be in the mood for a challenge. FatChocoboMom is in full blown laziness mode.I’m happy with how each turned out, particularly the second one. They both need a little blocking though.
This year, I plan to do more crafting. While this primarily means knitting and crochet, I’ve also expanded to learning to sketch and paint. Polycraftual does her best to influence me and make me fall in love with other crafts as well, so I should have plenty to do. In fact, I created a small project 50-style community on facebook (shameless plug?!) for sharing and talking crafts. While not everyone has accepted the challenge of making 50 crafts this year, it’s still a good place to showcase your projects.
