I can't wait until for year 5... I have so many ideas for my hook challenge :) I will post more about that in a few weeks because I want the A year of projects ravelry group to join in too. 
Now for my updates.... As I mentioned in my WIP post , I have been searching for a K hook size project that I loved. I finally found one! I was set on just making curtains for my porch but realizing I have 7 windows , I decided on something else. 
I love this bag. Pattern is by Jennette Reid .

My Boston Bruin blanket is coming out well... and fast. I'm almost done. I think after I make the rest of the yellow squares I will stop for a few months. Its starting to warm up here so I won't need it. 
I made all these squares over the past few days.

3a475-yop2bheader
After months of looking for the right K hook project for my hook challenge, I finally found something.
I found this pattern on ravelry . Candy Apple Fall Cabled Baguette. I need a new bag badly so this perfect.
I am using yarn from my stash. I've had it for about a year. Lion Brand Hometown U.S.A. in Minneapolis Purple. There only a few rows to go.  I will be stitching to black for the trim and handle.

Still missing you mom!

I just wanted to write a quick post about my mom. ( I don't think I will able to fight back the tears if I write much. She was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer 5 years ago and lost her fight 11 months after.... Today marks 4 years since she's been gone.
She was a beautiful and an amazing woman, a wonderful mom and friend. I miss her laugh , her sense of humor,  her wit, her sarcasm, her voice , her love and hugs, the way she use to say" know what I mean, jelly bean" and how she called me her baby girl.
And now the tears start.

YOP week 36: More Squares

3a475-yop2bheader
First I want to apologize for my yucky out side table. My porch has the best light.
A few weeks ago I started my Boston Bruin Blanket. I had trouble deciding on either to make traditional granny squares or solid.   With help of a facebook group I love , I will be making the blanket with solid squares. They will use up a but more yarn but the blanket will be warmer. Here is my progress so far....

These are squares for the top of the blanket. I ran out of yellow so I started making black squares.
This is the chart I am using .. I am using smaller squares because I don't need a big blanket.

I plan to make numbers ( by Moogly) for my favorite team members. I think I can fill up all the big squares around the B.
