What’s on my hook: Ombre ripple blanket

I feel like I’ve been on a crochet marathon to see just how much I can do before the baby comes. I blame this in part onย people telling us over and over again that we’ll never get to do X again as well as…

What’s on my hook: Summer Sprigs Lace Scarf

Ta-da! Making this scarf marks the first time I’ve used a lace weight yarn (it’s from my first Yarn Crush box), and I have to say it isn’t a favorite of mine! It took insanely long to work up and my eyes and hands…
