Color Me Lately

What's on the Hook - Color Me Reckless

Lately I’ve been trying valiantly to reduce the number of works in progress I have sitting around the coffee table.  It started as a need to clean up the living room [my craft room is under siege at the moment by spare furniture from the bedroom. Anyone want a box spring?] and that blossomed into a need to clean out my work baskets.

But I’m pleased to say that this has resulted in several new items going up in the shop, and some beautiful new works are being created [because of course I hated what I had started on months ago!].

Here’s a peak at what’s on the hook lately:

New Wedding Blanket

New Wedding Blanket - Color Me Reckless

This is one that I have started over three times now. Nothing seemed to fit! Finally I stumbled upon a project I had started with this stitch, tried it out with these colors, and now I’m in love.

New Baby Blanket

This one isn’t planned for anyone.  It’s mostly a way to work on this new stitch, and so far I’m….eh about it.  I like the stitch and I like the color, but I’m not sure a whole blanket will work well.

New Pillow #1

Pillow #1 - Color Me Reckless

I really like this one! Aside from some frustrations with miscounting every few rows, I really like this stitch pattern. It’s made from my big store of scrap yarn, and I’m loving the color combos.

New Pillow #2

These squares were originally going to be a huge blanket for our bed, but I got bored. So I’m giving them new life as a pillow and I really like the way it’s turning out! I’m excited to finish it up and get it all put together!

On the Hook

A Square A Day Blanket - Color Me Reckless

As I shared last week, I’ve been pretty busy lately! But thankfully, the craziness has slowed down a bit, and I am able to get back to hooking up things I love!

Here’s a look at what’s on my hook this week:

Wedding Blanket - Color Me Reckless

The first of this year’s wedding blankets! I love the pattern I created for these hexies and the way the colors work together.

And because I can’t just work on one project at a time, here’s another!

A Square A Day Blanket - Color Me Reckless

Catching up on a crochet a day project! This started as a part of the crochet mood blanket, but quickly became just trying to do one square a day.  I’m only 60 some squares behind?

What’s on your hook?
