Yarn Remnants Box, or Painter’s Palette? The beginnings of May’s Relaxghan.

Y’all are loving my free Relaxghan’s series, and I could not be more grateful. My goal was to bring you one new free and easy crochet blanket pattern each month, for six months, that you could use to stash bust through your yarn remnants. There have been three Relaxghans released so far, but the most popular was the April blanket, Carefree. That one was a hit, and I am so giddy to show the May blanket, Good Vibes, to you all. For now, I think I’ll keep its design a secret. 🙂 Scroll to the end of this post for a complete index of related links. Advertisements


Cozy Flowers – Crochet Blanket FO

Hello, y’all! I’m pleased to show off a finished object today despite the fact that I’ve had an extremely busy week. Sometimes you just know if you don’t finish a certain project, you’ll pull your hair out, am I right? So I stayed extra focused and plowed through! And now I present Cozy Flowers: Free Pattern Here! Color palette – Sweet-Fire – so named for the sugary pastels that give way to those burning oranges. Scheepjes | Catona and Sweet Treat held together throughout – I’ll list numbers on the free pattern when i release it! Shop Catona*, and Sweet Treat* Yarns – it looks awesome when you hold these Yarns together. If you zoom in on the pics you can see the neat texture it creates. Plus I used a size 5.5mm hook – so it works up fast. Here’s a shot of Cozy Flowers in progress – with the Continuous JAYG Granny St for Hexagons (YouTube Tutorial) and color palette just shining away (I know you can tell I️ introduced a bright yellow …

Scheepjes YARN 04 – Dutch Masters

Looking for something new to crochet? Scheepjes Yarns has released their latest issue of YARN bookazine, and it is so lush. Find this issue here at > WoolWarehouse < for speedy delivery. Dutch Masters is this issue’s theme, so the strong, deep colors - beautiful reds, purple, blue - are cozy, warm, and inviting. In fact, my coze factor has just dramatically increased.. I think I need a cup of coffee and a blanket; give me a sec.. Okay I’m back. So my contribution to YARN 04 is on the cover in the upper right corner. It’s a blanket named “New Horizons.” I did loads of research on the works of Piet Mondrian for my piece, and did you know he did so much more than the mod red blue and yellow squares that he’s known for? Yep, when I think of Piet Mondrian, I picture the primary color squares and rectangles shown in the image above, and I’ll bet you do too. But did you know Mondrian’s earlier works include broody landscapes with muddy, emotional color? …

Cozy Flowers is the real WIP!

Working on my Cozy Flowers blanket today for an energizing moment. You can’t help but feel the electricity in this palette, and moving from hot to sweet colors is making me feel like a painter! Oh and also it’s making me feel like I’m channeling my inner Susan Felted Button and Kirsten Haak Maar Raak! ❤️❤️ For this piece, I am using Scheepjes | Sweet Treat and Catona held together – see all the colors I’m using in my previous post (spoiler alert: I did add another color to the flowers and take one away from the background). Yarn deets: To make things easier on me, I wound one big ball using the two yarns, this way I wouldn’t have two yarn balls rolling all around. The Catona runs out first! Here’s how much of the Sweet Treat is left over, once all the Catona is gone. Not much! Dreaming of an embroidery project now, by the way ❤️ Then I started cranking out flowers. This is pretty much the easiest project ever, especially because the …
