~ scrappy scarf completed ~

Here's my completed scrappy scarf.  Just crocheted with plain rows of hdc.
Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
You'd think that it would get boring, but all the different colors made it a little fun to crochet.
I enjoyed working on it.

Have a great day.  :)

~ granny square baby blanket ~

Finished up this 2-strand granny square baby blanket a couple of nights ago.
I crocheted it with 1 strand of Lion Brand Mandala yarn in the colorway 'unicorn' and 1 strand of Studio Classic by Nicole in 'gentle white'.
The pattern is 3 rounds of basic granny square and then 1 round of (dc, ch 1, skip a stitch).
In the last round I wove a ribbon through the stitches and then tied it into a bow.
This blanket will be added to the guardian grandmas donation pile.

See you next time.  :)

~ a scrappy scarf ~

I've started a scrappy scarf using scrap 4-ply worsted weight yarns.

I've been watching Kendra from 'Hooked by Happenstance' on YouTube
make scrap yarn strips for a blanket and was inspired.
I don't want to commit to a blanket, so I decided to crochet a scarf.

It might be for me or it might be another Christmas gift.  I'm not quite sure yet.
I'll be sure to let ya'll know.  :)

~ New year - new name ~

Good morning everyone.  
I have changed my blog name to the same name I use on Instagram.
The content will be the same - lots of crochet with family stuff thrown in every once in a while.

As you have noticed, I haven't been too active in regards to my blog.  Things have changed in my life that make it tough to get on the computer.

For one: this little girl - my granddaughter Samantha.  I take care of her while her Mama is at work.

and for two and three: these puppies - Princess Von Dumass (the black and white puppy) and Baron Von Dumass ( the brown and white puppy).

  Everyone knows that with a baby and puppies, you hardly have a minute to do anything.
You may call me crazy at any time you'd like.  :)

I'm most active on Instagram since it's so easy to use, but I will try my best to post more often on here.  If you don't mind repeats, I think I will just post here what I post there.

I wish you all a safe, happy, and healthy New Year.
I'll be seeing you.  :)
