#WIP – Aredhel / DROPS 172-46

Here’s my work in progress so far for the Aredhel cardigan.

I always have a hard time unraveling work I’ve done if there are mistakes because like any newb, dang we spent a lot of time on this! J always makes me unravel the mistake though, and in the end I appreciate it, because then it looks perfect. 😍 But it’s also kind of like life, I mean you’ll never get the time back, but to be able to fix your mistakes, make it right again, is something so human and beautiful. Can’t wait until this is done!

#WIP – Basket Weave Baby Blanket (Crochet)

I don’t think I’ve ever estimated how many balls I need for a blanket properly… This is 2′ or 24″ wide. But that’s the last of my four balls of grey The Baby Wool (100% baby alpaca). J let me finish my project instead of making me unravel it, so I got to order 3 more in the mail based on WAK’s Skein Converter. In order to make the $60USD for free shipping deal, I added another color skein of baby alpaca and 3 balls of The Pima Cotton. 😍 And now we wait for my happy yarn mail from WAK…

Oh, P.S. I ordered a bunch of skeins from DROP Yarns also via Nordic Mart… SO MUCH YARN. ☺️ So happy. Will post pictures of the haul when it arrives…


If you want to learn this technique,  please check out Bella Coco on YouTube! I added a third row to make it more even to my eyes, but after you learn it, super easy to design how you want it! I used a Clover soft touch crochet hook in 5.00mm or US size H to make this pattern on The Baby Wool from We Are Knitters.
