Happy New Year! Last week I posted on Nesting By Robin’s (NBR) Facebook page a couple of fun projects to start off the 2016 New Year. The first one was a story and a set of fun gloves for kids. Below is a picture of additional gloves made since the posting and the rainbow of colors available, (soft pink, neon pink, coral and neon yellow are not shown). They are $5 per set.
The second project that was posted referred to one of hottest projects among the crochet world. It is a straight granny stitch blanket being made in conjunction with a temperature gauge of yarn colors. The finished product, a 2016 temperature blanket. You begin this project on January 1st. The idea is to crochet a row a day for the entire year. The color on the gauge you use is determined by the “High” temperature of the day. Below is a picture of the one I am working after the first ten days of this current year.
Please feel free to go to Nesting By Robin’s Facebook page for details. You will find the temperature gauge along with a picture of a granny stitch blanket. The links to the websites are posted for your convenience. I did adjust a couple of the directions on the blanket pattern because it was working out better for me. Also, I used “I Love This Yarn” from Hobby Lobby and listed the colors I am using. It’s not too late to begin. If you take this project on, no cheating and changing colors. Stick with Nature’s color scheme, it will be beautiful.
Future post: Wait until you see what my 3 year old grandchild inspired me to make for Valentine’s Day. The story and project will be posted in the very near future! Until then… ~ Robin
