Last night I finished up the last two items for Alpine Originals children’s theme for the local Art Walk,,, Owl Hat’s…. The Art Walk is today from 4pm to 7pm in downtown Mt. Shasta …. Many galleries and shops will be open late to show off the different types of art we have in our town… It’s fun and so many great items in the shops!

It’s almost Easter and I couldn’t resist making another sweet Granny Baby Blanket….

.

When I was looking through my stash, trying to decide what to make next… I kept picking up these beautiful Eastery skeins of yarn!   Hmmm… What to make???  Well, if you have been following my recent posts about the Art Walk in our town you will remember that the store I sell my items is participating in the event… Alpine Originals carries handmade items that are created by local artist (me included).  This month their store’s theme for the Art Walk is children’s items, and I have been making quite a few.  I thought I was done with blankets,,, but no… this yarn kept calling me and my hook to get to work…

That’s not the only one though… I am almost done with the next baby blanket,,,  Am I obsessed with baby blankets or what???  The next one is a Camo Granny Square Blanket,,, It is about 3/4 done and I should have it complete just in time for this Friday’s Art Walk…  I will post a picture of it when it’s done…

So here is to Baby Blankets and Granny Squares….

It’s National Crochet Month,,, Week 2…  I am so excited to be working on my next pattern to be published here on my site and on ravelry.com  later this week!

I live in a very small town and crochet supplies are hard to come by… I needed some new yarn to work on this project and my new pattern.  This go around I was able to find what I needed for a reasonable price at amazon.com  and it arrived at my home yesterday…  It was so exciting to open a box and see new skeins of yarn to add to my stash!

Some great yarn to start a new project…

.

I started my project right away… So excited to write a new pattern and make my newest item to deliver later this week to the shop.  This month our town will re-start the once a month Art Walk.  The theme at Alpine Originals (the shop where I sell) is Children… So they will be highlighting all the artists (including me) and all the children’s items they make… I am busy making extra kids items just for this event!  Hint…. The next FREE PATTERN is in this category…
