things

I love tiny things, here are some teensy dodos

I forgot about this cowl I made. I wish I would have made the smaller one, though. I do love the yarn, Lion Brand Thick & Quick Metallics in Galaxy.

An extravagant gift from my husband. The yarn from purlsoho.com, the pattern from purlbee.com.

I finished this filet stitch fun flower throw. It's my first throw, one of my first crochet projects
and it shows!

I had a birthday and used it as an excuse to bake a fun, huge cake with my niece.

thick blanket with neon yellow border

I finished my thick (three strands of yarn) blanket. It’s done in garter stitch with neon yellow single crochet border. I think I should have used larger needles. I used size 17. But I do like it. It’s very squishy. 
Even though I did the a swatch, it still turned out too wide. I need to work on my tension, I guess. :)

The heather yarn is lion brand wool-ease and the neon yellow is deborah norville worsted.
