Five and Dime

I've been pretty busy lately, thanks to my etsy sale. I finished the custom blanket I was working on and have since shipped it off along with other blanket my client bought as well.

After completing that blanket my client decided she was such a fan of my work that she ordered 4 lapghans from me as well! So now I'm currently working on those for her. I also received another custom  order from a separate client for the same baby blanket in blue and lime green. So I'm busy crocheting away.

I've been updating the progress of the blankets on my instagram but figured I would come here to do a proper update. 

There isn't much else going on, I had a lovely Easter that I spent with my family which was wonderful. Now I'm at the boyfriends house in lovely Long Beach taking in the ocean breezes while I crochet. Life is good right now. Despite not having a full time job I am doing better than anticipated.

Here is the lapghan that is currently on my lap being worked on, I absolutely LOVE the color choice for this one. 

So fantastic!

Be prepared for a new tutorial and pattern post in a week or so. I was asked for the pattern to my headbands that have on Etsy and since I myself am not really too find of them I've decided to post the pattern. So look out for that soon.

Well that's the end if today's post. Hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday and I will be back with more updates soon.

Its all fun and games...

... Until you have to weave in the ends.

I definitely find this part of crochet to be most boring, time consuming and irritating part of making anything.

I would have just crocheted continuously, switching yarns and never cutting; but then your forced to have a border that looks weird.

So cutting and weaving in the ends it is. 

We are almost there.


P.s. Don't forget about that sale on Etsy. 20% off! SPRING20 is the offer code to use at checkout!

A Crochet Baby Blanket in Neutral Colors

I received a custom order for this lovely blanket a few days ago; it is going to be so beautiful! I'm making it as a baby shower gift for my clients niece but  they don't know the sex yet. She gave me the colors the couple likes and I chose the color sequence. I think they will love it! It's one of my favorites i've made so far.

Dont forget my spring sale is still going on in my Etsy shop where you can get 20% off your purchase using the offer code SPRING20. Don't miss out on it! It's a great sale, you can even use the discount for custom orders as well, you just have to pay once you confirm your order.

I'm also now on instagram.... @crochetbymonet is my name so go follow me and I will follow you back. 

Time to get back to that beautiful blanket
