Some old, some new

by Julie Hirt

I haven’t worked on much this week because I wasn’t feeling very good.  I thought I’d upload some pics of things I’ve made in the past and the Make Life quilt I started for Tori.

Here are some colorful cotton coasters that I LOVE.  I used this pattern but with a G hook and for the last round I switched out the color.  They work up pretty quickly and I love that they’re square rather than round.

Here are some embroidery/cross stitch things I completed a few months back. Not sure what I’ll do with them but I may turn the sugar skull into some kind of pillow.

Lastly… a couple of market bags I crocheted last winter. We really just use them for library books and the girls use them for different things.

KU Afghan

by Julie Hirt

I made this for my brother and started it back in February.  He asked me to make him an afghan when I started crocheting. I only had a few hours left to go when I got tired of working on it. So  I decided to finally finish it up this past week. I used a larger needle and 2 threads of yarn so it’s a thick, tight, blanket. The yarn definitely won’t snag.

I made up my own pattern:
106 sc across
each color block is 32 rows of sc
the ends are 6 rows of sc, 2 rows of the bubble, 6 rows of sc

On the edging I did 2 rows of this bubble pattern.

It ended up roughly 4′ x 6′.   It’s my first crochet blanket and possibly my last. Felt like it took FOREVER.

Amigurumi whale

by Julie Hirt

I found the pattern for the little blue whale I had posted about.

It can be found here at Planet June. She has a few free patterns, I really want to make the little acorns!

Crochet, crochet!

by Julie Hirt

Here are a few of my crochet projects from last winter. The rug is turning out pretty good, it’s old t-shirts cut into strips and hooked together with a size Q (huge hook). It’s super thick and will probably make a good bath mat or something for under the dog bowls.

The little Amigurumi animals are out of Amigurumi World – the whale is from a free pattern I found online. I need to find it and put a link to it.

I’m working on 2 blankets and have also finished a couple of market bags. I’ll try to put up pics of those soon.
