Out with the old, in with the new!

I've finally finished some of my projects! EEEEEP!!! Kay so I gave that woman her blanket for her grandson (she LOVED it by the way), I finished selling the coasters, I finished that blue hat you saw and another knitted green hat for my brother, a black knitted scarf, and I undid a blanket that I've had going for about a year so I could crochet it another way. First it was gonna be a huge granny square, next i was just double crochet worked back and forth, now its going to be made out of lots of granny squares. They're four rounds. I've always wanted to make a blanket like that and now I have enough small balls of yarn to do it. I hope my friend likes it!

Now heres pictures of the other blankets I'm working on.

This is the blanket my momma started but never finished. I found it one day and started working on it.

This is a blanket I'm making for my brother. He can't wait for it to be done!

And heres the blanket I made for the lady's grandson! This was a few days before it was finished.

Well, guess I'll talk to you soon!

I gave the woman the blanket a while ago without taking a picture of it finished so I'l show you a picture of it like a day or two before it was finished tomorrow. I was gonna take a picture but I showed it to her when I was running out of yarn to see if she wanted me to add some to it. She said it was fine so I hurried up and made it and gave it to her.
I've got other blankets that I'm working on to show you. I just have to get them out of the closet of doom....

Here are the coasters!

Kay, here are those coasters you've heard so much about:

Sorry some of the pictures are so blurry. I don't know why they are. Maybe cause I was zoomed in all the way and I was right up close to them when I took the pictures.

Well anyways, hopefuly today I'll sell 'em all. I'm so sick of them layin' around!

Its me!!! And crochet!!!

Hello! Its me, Olivia! The creater of this blog! Well, here are the projects I've been working on.

Can you guess what this is?

Its a blanket! I'm making it for a lady's grandson. I went to see if she wanted to buy some coasters and she said she was more interested in blankets. I went out and bought some blue yarn and now I'm almost halfway done!

This is a hat I'm making for myself. Its very cozy and warm!

Here is a blanket my friend started and never finished. She gave it to me and I've been working on it.

That's about all the projects I'm working on now. In the next post I'll show you those coasters I've been telling you about.

Ok, since I don't really feel like messing around with the pattern page (I know, I'm getting to be really lazy. Blame our big puffy couch that I LOVE!!!) cause its kinda messed up I'm going to write the pattern right here.

Hat Pattern:

Note: I used a 6 mm hook (a big one. not huge but big) and some homespun yarn

Chain five. Join with a slip stitch, chain two, and turn.

Do eight single crochet stitches around the loop

Join with a slip stitch when you get to the first stitch

Chain two and do two single crochet stitches in the first stitch and one in the second

Keep on going like that until you get to the first stitch

Join, chain two, and increase in every other stitch for bout four more rows

Crochet normally on one row and increase in every other stitch in the next row

Keep on doing that until the hat is as wide as you want it then just keep on crocheting until its as long as you want it.

I hope this pattern wasn't too complicated. If you have any questions just comment.

Now for some pictures!!! You can finally see what me and my brother and sister look like!!!

This is my brother Kellen on the left and my cousin Jacob.

And here is my sister B'Elanna!! I can't post a picture of myself right now because I just realized that when I put the pictures I took on my camera into the computer I hadn't taken a picture of me yet and it takes a minute so you'll see me tomorrow. Then you'll see the projects I'm working on!!! I'm so glad I got my camera!!!

See ya'll later!
