Ready to Crochet

Good Morning Friends,

Thanks for stopping by. I am still here and doing well, I've just been tied up with work projects and wasn't able to get much crocheting done this week. I was supposed to make a business trip to the state of Arkansas earlier this week, but the terrible weather prevented me from going. My thoughts are with all of the people who have been affected by the tornadoes.

Earlier in the week I stocked up on the yarns I need to complete the English Meadow Granny Stripe blanket. As we celebrate Memorial Day here in the USA, I look forward to this long weekend to make some ground on the blanket.

I was also working on another cardigan, this one a bit more complex than the last one. So far the back of the cardigan is about 50% complete. Right now I am trying to get the arm shapes correct, which is turning out to be quite tricky. Hopefully this weekend includes some time for that too. The stitch of this sweater will make it warmer than my other cardigan (plus it is acrylic, not cotton), so I am not in a big hurry to finish it since the temps are reaching the mid 90's here in Southwest Florida.

Well I am off to get going on my granny stipe. I hope you have a fabulous weekend and get to do something fun!
xoxo Susan


  1. Susan, love the colors of the blanket. I think it is funny you are making a warm sweater and I am obsessed with cowls, we live in Florida and it is crazy hot out! What is wrong with us? Hope you have a wonderful, long weekend.
    Can't wait to see your progress.

  2. Have fun with your blanket this weekend.

    I had started a cardigan in silk and alpacca wool before the weather was warm and sunny. So I had to stop crocheting last week. Now we have a rainy day and it is quite cool as it always is when the sun disappears in this area. Makes me want to lit a fire and take up crocheting again. :-)

  3. I love that yarn, but what is the kind? I missed that post. The colors are perfect for it's well choosen name. I also adore you fun with the pics.... especially the cube looking one. Where did you do that?
