Staying Put & Fluffy

I’m back!!!  I’ve decided to keep the crochet blog separate from the others.  You come here for yarny goodness, not honey and car restoration. (Although you are most welcome to visit the other blogs, too!)

I’ve been working on a baby blanket, lately.  My husband’s coworker is expected a baby girl later this spring.  We will be out of town for the baby shower, but I still wanted to make something warm and cuddly to welcome the new baby girl with.  This blanket from Yarnspirations and Patons made the rounds last year, and I just never had a reason or time to make it until now.



If your interested, the name is Fluffy Meringue Stitch Blanket.  It is a free pattern, and I have it listed on my Ravelry projects page, too.  I’m using a Bernat Baby yarn, which I love because of the softness.  The blanket is nice, too.  I’m not fond of picot stitches and a double crochet back post decrease is a mouthful, the blanket stitches up rather quickly.  It’s nice that you can make it whatever size you want; just continue repeating the last four rows of the pattern.  I’m not sure I’d want to make a king-size blanket with all these picots, but it’s perfectly possible with this pattern.


If you are interested in the other blogs, check out:   for bees, honey, and farm life  or  for the 1948 Fleetline restoration project.


Changes coming…maybe

I’ve been toying with some changes both crochet-related and blog related.  I have more projects on the hook than I’ve ever had at one time before, which is both fun and frightening.

I also have another blog that I write for in addition to this one.  It has a bit wider scope, containing my musings on crochet, honeybees (I have two hives), farm life, and motherhood in general.

Keeping up with everything is starting to slow me down in actually finishing anything.  I’ve already made the decision to not start any new yarn projects until the current load is finished, including the pattern writing.  As far as the blogging goes, I may combine everything into one blog at a new site.

I’m still working on the details. :/
