so i posted in here the other day asking about how to make a square blanket while avoiding the granny squares! someone suggested a log cabin style and i found a pattern and have started on one. i'm in love! thank you fellow crafter ;u;

my color palette

it's gotten a little bit bigger since this photo :) it's so easy and relaxing.. can't wait to finish it up, wash it and cuddle up in it.

the bottom has actual support.. thought it was a nice touch. this is one of the first things i've made without a pattern, just kind of winged it, and it turned out really nicely so i'm pretty proud of it! even if it is just a mug cozy lol.

Handmade Olive Green Crochet Ear Warmer Headband - turban style
aaand this guy. i'm not necessarily an earwarmer headband fan myself but it was a super quick project and i wanted to try the little turban style thing at the front. i'm hoping to make a few more earwarmers/headbands with big bows on them! i haven't made any bows yet so i'm excited to learn something new.

I love the mug cozy! I think the square blanket is something I'd like to make! I've made several granny square type but I really like the solid square. You do wonderful work!

I love the headband. I like wearing them when shoveling/snow-blowing. Is it your own pattern?

You could try selling more of the mug cozies at Etsy. I think that mug cozy is a great idea.

they seem to be relatively popular! i've listed the one in the photo on my etsy and i think i'm going to make a few more.

Your blankie is coming along famously!! Love the coffee mug cozy idea and agree with bugeyedmonster, should sell on Etsy or if you have Kijiji in your area.
I absolutely love love love the headband!!!!

Kijiji is like craig's list but in Canada and I am not sure if the USA has a Kijiji. Just a place to sell your stuff and the advertising is free.

I think I might try a blanket like that one! I really like it!

The headband and mug cozy are cute too. I'll have to try some mug cozies for Christmas next year. :)

aww! every time i try to start a project with granny squares/a giant granny square i get disinterested. you should definitely give one of these a try :) thank you!

I love the blanket! Please post a picture of the finished project, I'd love to see it! I think this type would be so much cozier than a granny square blanket.

thanks! i definitely will :) i think it will be too! less flimsy.

I love the headband!! I'm not much of a wearer myself, but I do love the look of it. it would also be cute if you did the turban thingy from the other side and made them meet in the middle! :)
Feb. 20th, 2013 01:46 am (UTC)
thanks! i just made another one today with a similar style and did it on both sides. :)
