Come to My Window

Peeking outside but still focusing on the curtain.

The white stripe down the middle is the window pane trim if you haven't figured that out.

Curtains fully open focusing on the lavender crepe myrtles.
I love these lavender ones!

Thanks for indulging me while I learn a few things.


Fifteen squares done. I only need one more square of each color and I'll be sewing these babies together and adding a pretty edging. I was going to use the white color for the edging, but I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and found a color that I think will work better...not too light, not too dark. I can hardly wait, but it'll be a few more least three before I'm ready to sew them together, and that's if I don't get any work in to do.

This has been a really fun blanket so far and done at a leisurely pace, but not too leisurely as to lose my interest. If you've missed it, the free pattern for the squares can be found HERE. My squares are coming out to about 14 inches across using a 5.00 mm hook and Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. I'm intentionally crocheting very loosely or else the squares bunch up weirdly. Use a bigger hook if you are a tight crocheter.

See ya.
