I went back to college this week. LOVE getting to see my friends and begin learning more about the field I love so much. Working with children is a huge passion of mine and I’m always excited to be around people who share that passion. Also, I get to watch baby Nóra (from a few posts ago) two days a week. It makes me super happy.
So before I tell you about my WIPs, I want to pre-apologize if I’m having trouble keeping up with everything on here. I think either my WIP Wednesday will have to become a monthly post with pictures every time or keep it weeekly and pictures as I can. My WIP pics are never great because I often take them at night, when I am home and have time to crochet, which will be less now that I’m back in school 😑 Thank you to anyone who is actually reading these posts. I do like the accountability of this blog and at least writing my weekly progress. But, school hast to be my priority. Thanks for understanding. Also, if you don’t, you should follow my instagram. I post in stories a lot about my day to day and I try to post pics of what I’m working on. 😉 As a little surprise though, I have TWO new posts coming this week featuring some projects I did earlier this year including my first amigurumi and c2c. If you follow my Insta, you’ve seen it all before but I do tell a more detailed narrative.

I didn’t work on the doll project or espadrilles this week.
Project Ice Cream Coozies is still ongoing. Nothing new there this week, just making some simple bases while I commute. I am delivering them on September 23rd so I have time. I don’t have a goal number but I’ll probably have about 20 if I had to guess.
I spent my last day of summer break with my beautiful blanket. I finished the first skein of mandala yarn and it came out to approximately 10.5 inches. Based on that, it will be about 8 feet 9 inches with the 10 skeins I have. I bought the only 6 at Walmart over the weekend! My WM is carrying several kinds of the Lion Brand Mandala yarn as well as Bernat Pop. Love! Anyway, this beauty is just so lovely. It will be tricky to try to make the colors line up but I’m going to really really really try not to let my OCD get the better of me with it. I think I’m going to love this blanket though.
The baby blanket is looking so good. I am really happy I went back and made the change to HDC and added a chevron to make it an even eight. When I fold it in quarters, it just looks so much nicer. I’ve been debating what I want to make with it. There are so many super cute hats and booties out there. I love Repeat Crafter Me’s hat she made when her daughter Zoe was born. It has a little tie on top like the ones at the hospital. I alos love Ashleigh at Sewrella’s set she did for her son, Parker. She uses either a front or back post DC to give a ribbed effect around the border fo the hat and on the booties. I may end up doing two hats. One for when he’s first born and a second for him to grow into. I’m so indecisive I’m just like let’s just do all of them, lol. If anyone knows any cute beanie or bootie patterns, please email me the link! I’d love to see what you’d reccommend!
Until next time!
