WIP Wednesday: Chevrons and Cat for Scale 

This past weekend Anthony and I made the trek to Michael’s and I snagged a couple balls of Aqua Loops & Threads for 55% off one of them. 


Although it is one of the staples of crochet, I admit to never having completed a chevron blanket so I decided it was about time to give it a go. 

So far I’m pleased with how it is turning out. I plan on adding a large border and making this my comfy reading blanket, because who doesn’t love to cocoon up with a good book?

So, what’s on your hook this Wednesday?

Rainy day, lazy day. 

I woke up today to an overcast sky and a fog that made me fear Dementors were lurking outside my door. 

I love rainy days, it allows me a guilt free reason to hunker down with a hank of yarn, my kitties and a cup of tea. 

So far, I am just shy of 100 red pixel squares out of the 299 needed for the Horde Crest portion of my wall hanging. 

I am not looking forward to having to hide all those tails . At the mention of tails, Poe wishes to share his with you. Well, his bum anyways. 

Hopefully my next update will be one where I am into the black pixels. 

Happy hooking!

For the Horde!

A while back I mentioned a large scale project that was in the works. Today, I feel ready to show you all what I’m creating. 

As a few of you might know, I am a huge fan of Blizzard Entertainment and World of Warcraft, an mmorpg.

I am a tried and true Hordie and ages ago I picked up a couple balls of Red Heart Super Saver in red and black for a wall hanging that I just never got around to designing.

I rediscovered said yarn while going through my stash and decided it was time . 

I am using Pixel Squares to make the Horde symbol. The squares are just the first round of a granny square worked in worsted weight yarn with a 5mm hook so that they look a little “poofy”.

So far, I have made 35 pixels out of the 299 red ones required for the wall hanging. I have a long way to go. 

I am hoping that I can sell this as my first major sized project so if you are interested in purchasing it upon completion, feel free to drop me a line. 

Lok’tar Ogar friends.
