Continuous Granny Square Blanket

I started this throw blanket a little over two years ago. I think it took me so long because I kept getting bored and putting it away lol. I finally got to a point where I just wanted to finish it though and that has happened this fall!

I followed this pattern at Daisy Cottage Designs. The only change I made was I didn’t do any border edging for it.

If you’re looking for an easy blanket pattern, I highly recommend this one 🙂

My New Cozy Fall Scarf

I recently finished the Secret Paths scarf pattern by Johanna Lindahl of Mijo Crochet. I took this project on knowing it would take a while, which was great for me because I had plenty of time to kill. I did find myself needing to made a few stitch adjustments in order to make sure either side of the triangle kept an even number of stitches, but that may have been due to an error on my own part. Either way, I am happy with the end result 🙂

The yarn I used was Lion Brand Mandala in Centaur and I used an H8/5.00 MM crochet hook. Johanna also has a quick photo tutorial for beaded tassels which I added to each corner of my scarf.

Here’s to hoping Florida cools down soon so I can wear my new masterpiece!
