MelodyCrochet Podcast Episode 4!

Did I mention that I started a podcast? No?! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to leave you out. But, the idea of starting was a little overwhelming. Very little organizing or admin was done because I didn't want to make it any more work than it was for fear that I just wouldn't do it. But I did it! And I'm really glad that I have. I also started a little ravelry group for the podcast, please come join us! It's my next bit of admin to attack. I would love to hear from you for support as I learn. 

I will be posting show notes there and here. I will just link to hear from the group. I tried to just do the notes on there but I am so much more used to formatting on this platform. I will also be posting more here about my projects. I have been making quite a bit. I just have not been writing much about my endeavors. What have you been working on? I'd love to hear! But here is the show notes for episode 4!

I crocheted a blanket!

Hi guys! Hope you are all doing well. 

Things are good here. I do love when summer comes. But the oncoming heat is no excuse not to gift a little girl with a blanket. Hopefully,  she will be able to enjoy this blanket for years to come. 

And here it is! I hope that Waverly loves it. :) 

And the supplies!

I was able to use a hefty mix of worsted weight acrylic from my stash for this: 

Hobby Lobbys Crafters Secret - A35 - Purple, A Grape Fit 
Hobby Lobby - I Love This Yarn - Lavender, Teal, Pink and Tropical Pink Red Heart Super Saver Solids - Lavender Big Twist - Value - Light Teal 

and I used my trusty size J clover hook!

The pattern that I used was the Ripple of Happiness pattern by Le Monde Du Sucrette. This beautiful, free and SUPER wiggly ripple pattern went so fast!

Please note that I do use affiliate links. The Amazon links give me a little money if you purchase anything. Which is awesome and GREATLY appreciated. The other links are all just for your information purposes. Sadly, the ones to the stores directly do expire...if that happens I will try to take care of the link as soon as I know about it.
