I'm really into blankets right now. I'm waiting for some yarn for one I'm planning to make. Meanwhile I'm working on striped scarves and experimenting with techniques for carrying the yarn between stripes so the edges still come out evenly. A lot of times I'll do that -- if I'm not sure what project to do next, or waiting for yarn for a specific project, I'll just grab some yarn I like working with from my stash and play around just to practice/experiment with techniques.

Love the rainbow scarf! It's pretty cute. :D

Here's my latest project: a pillow cover using the cupcake stitch.

Ahhhh! I love that cupcake stitch! I'll have to try that sometime.

I'm currently embroiled in trying to get my work bag all untangled so I can get back to the srs bizns of crocheting. It's a disaster.

As I was sitting outside untangling my yarn some more (I'm almost done! yay!) I was thinking it would be kind of awesome to have a crochet challenge of some kind. But I'm not sure how to go about it, or when would be a good time (no way am I doing it during MoFo, ha). Thoughts?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a crocheted sweater pattern that you've used?

I have hunted high and low and cannot find the pattern i used (found it on ravelry)- it was a baby quilt using granny squares in really fine yarn. i used crazy colors and it came out AWESOME. This is what I made with the leftovers (the real one was very regular, made in teal and purple and green)

Thanks, cq! And thanks for the pattern links, ijdi. So many pretty variations!

Here's the one I found that made me curious about other granny square patterns:

And oooh, such a cool-looking blanket, torque!

Yeah, I pretty much hated weaving in the ends, but I watched Seinfeld in the background to have some entertainment. ;)

Here are a few projects I have finished lately. I've been really into making different colored granny-square throws at the moment, I love em' and then I hate them when they get bigger, but still addicted.

Granny-Square Throw I made for my little sister.

Sunburst Beret from "Crochet Boutique"

Bubble Stitch Earwarmer I found on Pinterest. The Pattern you can find here: http://thebattersboxblog.com/the-bean-e ... e-pattern/

Love your stuff, Wino!

In other news, I never knew there were other stitches than single & double crochet (*hangs head in shame*) - but now I can do puff and cluster stitches and I'm making these sunburst granny squares like crazy:

Image

Since I have no idea what to make with them (and they're a bit uneven in size), I guess I'm just going to try out new variants of granny squares and collecting them to make an afghan some day. I've always wanted one and never had one!

I love those sunbursts! Such a creative use of puffs! I might have to try something like that.

Wow, those sunbursts are pretty, phoenix. Do you have a link to a pattern? I like lots of different stitches but I really only make blankets.

Wino, is that just one big granny square? You said you hate them when they get bigger - was it awkward to work with when it was big?

I finished a large ripple pattern throw last month. It's pretty (sorry no pics but you can imagine - basic ripple pattern, three shades of green and a yellow). I did two rows with each colour then changed colours. On a six-foot long blanket that's a lot of weaving in. I watched a documentary about Mount Everest while I did it.

Now I am making a baby blanket in bright yellow for a friend from this pattern: https://www.projectlinus.org/patterns/ssba.html It's very easy but I love the look of it.

The baby blanket pattern ^ was posted by a woman who makes blankets for Project Linus. I don't think we have a chapter here but I would love to make blankets like this when I have a bit more time. I will call the hospital and find out, but I would think that shelters for women and children, and Supportive Housing For Young Mothers would take them as well. I know the blankets I made for my niece and nephew are favourites that get dragged around, played with and loved.
