Four Finished Projects

I am staying home a lot lately, except for doctor appointments, so I have had more time to finish things.  I guess it also helps that they are smaller projects. ☺


The Star Blanket is the first project completed this week.  I used this pattern from Yarnspirations, but used worsted weight yarn from my stash.  I edged it with one row of white dc, and one row of variegated slip stitch.  I tried to do sc first, but ran out of yarn!


The next project was supposed to be a baby sleeper, but turned into a "fleece" vest.  I was using yarn from my stash again, and didn't know how much there was.  So, I yet again ran out.  It looks warm a cuddly.


In honor of Valentine's Day, I made a Heart 
Valentine Candy Basket.  This is another Yarspirations pattern you can find here.  Instead of the yarn listed, I  used a ribbon yarn from my stash.  I originally made it for us, but my husband suggested that I gift it.  We'll see.


Last night I made this Triple Loop Skinny Scarf. I used a free pattern from Little Monkeys Crochet, that you can find here. Again, using stash yarn, I had to modify the pattern.  I used an L hook, worsted weight yarn for the main rows, and edged it with novelty yarn with single crochet.  I added an antique button from my button jar for the wrap piece.  This is my favorite project of the week, and definitely a keeper.

I am linking this post to the parties on this page.

What lovely makes, the scarf is my favourite too. I also like to do small projects, that way I've more chance of actually finishing them. Lol. xx

I love that scarf! I have it on my list of projects to do. I really love the yarn you chose. Nice, earthly color combo.
And congrats on the blanket! I remember seeing the beginning of that in our Yarn Fanatic Party a few weeks ago. I think I may have a "favorite" for next week already ;) Thanks for sharing with us!

Oh, a woman after my own heart! :D I've got crochet projects going all the time. I just finished a Minecraft Creeper hat with ear flaps for my son's birthday. (He turns 10.) Next? I'm going to make a cozy for Mason jars to carry snacks and water. I find water tastes better out of glass rather than plastic or metal. What are you working on now?

I am still working on my granny square blanket, which I will show tomorrow for WIP Wednesday. I just finished a tam for a teenager with cancer in her school colors, and another infinity scarf for me.
