My favorite summer activity: crocheting blankets


It’s almost 90 out! I don’t have air conditioning! Let’s make us some blankets! I (Kirstin) am now working on my second blanket of the summer. This one is already coming out better than the last. I’m using the same yarn, but the pattern seems to work with it better. The other pattern was worked in just the back loops of the stitches, instead of both the front and back loops of each stitch. I think that made it feel less sturdy.

One strip down and 7 to go! Unfortunately, each strip is added to the first, instead of being sewn together at the end. Normally, I’m all for 14 fewer ends to weave in, but this time of year I prefer not to have the entire blanket on my lap as I work on it. But I have really enjoyed sitting on my front porch in the evenings as I crochet.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    It is beautiful – and I am with you, the fewer ends to weave in the better!
