I'm really not avoiding my son's Rugged Ripples blanket...OK, maybe somewhat. The monotony of the same stitches and colors over and over, row and row, has gotten boring. It's hard to bring along an almost completed oversized twin afghan in a craft bag when I'm out and about too. Most of my crocheting gets done outside the house, watching the kids swim, relaxing at the library, waiting at doctor's offices. I will get back to his blanket, but for now there are so many other projects catching my attention.
Do you ever feel like there's never enough time for all those WONDERFUL projects you see on Pinterest?
I had requests for cell phone cases this past weekend from my kiddos. Sitting around a campfire, was a perfect time for creating some quick projects. Cate and Shea wanted cozies in the same yarn and buttons. We're all really liking this yarn.
Then my son Sam wanted one for his phone. I didn't have a lot of yarn to chose from during our camping trip, but I had brought along some blue and white cotton yarn to make a hanging hand towel and he liked it. I never did get to the hand towel...
And I've been wanting to make another cozy for my phone, one with super bulky, soft yarn for protection from drops. Hopefully. This project with super bulky yarn and a 9mm hook crochets up FAST!
