I forgot how difficult it is to work on critters during the summer. I’m outside with the kids all the time and I can’t juggle yarn, hook, scissors, stuffing fluff, eyes, paper, and pencil (to record the pattern,) not to mention the baby. Inside I spread out all over a table. I can’t do that outside in the breeze. It’s hard to get any crocheting done, but I manage to occasionally make progress on simple projects, like blankets.
Thankfully, I have a blanket to work on. I have the octagon pattern memorized now and just have to finish edging the last octagon and make the triangles for the sides and sew it together. Not bad.
And I totally, desperately, want to make this for Miss C’s room.
The square is a free pattern on Ravelry
I just love how when the squares are sewn together they make diamond pattern. Here’s a large version of the picture. So pretty.
I’ll have to try to clear my project backlog first. I really need to get the baby blankie and dragon done, at the very least.
