Tah Dah! Giant Granny is Finished!!!

Tah Dah!! Here it is...Giant Granny is finished. 

Yes, it has been fun but...whoo...what a relief it is finally done. 

I finished the border last night and I LOVE it!!

It is the perfect size for snuggling under on the cold snowy nights we have ahead. My son doesn't usually say much about my crochet but...he told me, "Mom, you don't give yourself enough credit. This is nice craftsmanship." Isn't he so sweet? He is 26 years old and still, "My Boy".

Now...on to my next WIP. 
I started this in January. It is for my daughter, as soon as she saw it she loved it and I told her she could have it when it was finished. Well...it's time to finish it. 
My Rainbow Granny Stripe blanket!

 Isn't it so bright and cheery? I love the yarn, it is Plymouth Encore DK 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool so it will wash up beautifully!
I just have a few more rows and the border of course. I hope to have this one done over the weekend.

And just for fun...Check out these darling Turkey Coasters! This is a free pattern at CraftPassion

I hope all of you have a Happy, Happy, Thanksgiving!

Giant Granny-Almost Finished

I am almost finished with my Giant Granny!

I have 45 rows right now and I think 50 rows will make it the right size to completely cover my feet! Then I will be ready to add the border! I am not sure what border I am going to use yet. Probably the same one I plan on using on my Granny Stripes blankets. 

Thanks for all your comments and votes on my Big Surprise! It's unanimous...

A new Ripple blanket. 

I can't wait but I am going to finish my 3-WIPs first.

Have a great week!!

My BIG Surprise!

My Mixed Berry Scarf...Tah Dah!!
no this is not the BIG surprise...

I am excited to show you this completed project...

and this beauty...my Sequined Scarf. Do you remember this one?

It turned out so soft and delicate. I just love the pattern and the yarn!!

And now this...no it isn't the BIG surprise yet!

I finished this scarf too. 

Now are your ready...

are you sure...

believe me it is going to be worth the wait!!

I am so excited to show you this that I am giddy!

I know... just get on with it.


here it is...

the BIG Surprise!!

All the way from the U.K...


LUCY A24 Pack 
(click above to order yours)

Yes...I know




But its awesomeness only gets better and better.

This 17 skeins of yarn in these yummy colors, (handpicked by Lucy herself) is less than $40 and free shipping. 

You can't beat that kind of deal. It did take two weeks to arrive so I have been on pins and hooks waiting, waiting, waiting and finally
it arrived in all its glory and I am ecstatic! 

Now what am I going to do with it??

That my friends is up to you. That's right. You tell me what to make from this yummy confection of yarn!!

I want it to be a blanket. Not a granny stripe because I have two of those going already. Maybe a ripple or granny squares, ( I also have a giant granny going on now as well.) Maybe I should finish the three blankets I have started before I start this new one. Naw...I don't think I can wait that long. :)

So tell me what kind of a blanket should I make?? Just leave me a comment and I'll let you all know what you decide. I LOVE making blankets so I'm open to any pattern you choose. 

I'm so excited to see what all of you decide for me! It will be kind of a fun challenge.

Have a great week everyone and Happy Hooking!!
