I worked on it for about a half an hour, before my hand got tired and I quit for the night. I can’t believe how bulky it has gotten from all that I have done so far. It will be lovely once it is down.
I was thinking it would be lovely to have it done by Canna’s birthday on August 27th, kind of a tribute to his lovely life. I really miss that big Orange monster.
So my completion date I am striving for is August 27, 2012. 2 years ago

I did a couple of stitches after I got down untangling the last of three skeins of yarn. It wasn’t much, but at least it was something. Of course, I will work on it more and more as the days go on. 2 years ago

I found my G crochet hook! You wouldn’t believe where it was. It was on my night stand beside my Bible. I found it when I went to move it to put my laptop. I must have put it there so I wouldn’t lose it.
So, I can start crocheting a row starting Friday, March 23, 2012. Now, I just have to get in a routine of working on it a little bit each day, regardless how warm it gets. It is only going to get done if I work on it, and not finding excuses on why I haven’t been working on it.

I didn’t find it behind my bed or under my bed. I have no idea where it is. I think it was a G hook, so I might have to buy another one, because I know I don’t have another one that size. I only used a bigger hook, because it is a 3 strand blanket and I felt it would work better then the one I usually use, which is a blue metal size J (its smaller then the size G)
If I don’t find it by Friday, March 23, I might go buy one at Walmart, because I can get one pretty cheap. 2 years ago

Gah! I lost my hook that I was working on this blanket with. I think it was a G hook. I really have to start documenting these things in a little notebook. A notebook that will laid down what type of hook or needle I was using, what is the name of the stitch, as well as a cope of the pattern (so if I ever lose it, I will have it there) as well as the name of the yarn.
I didn’t get a chance to check behind my bed, which if it came out of the blanket, it might have went there.
Guess what I will be doing when I work on this goal tomorrow? LOL2 years ago

I have neglected this project for so long, regardless over the winter I have worked on it, and then only to allow it to lay at the foot of my bed, just like Canna did. Since it is getting warmer, I had to move the blanket off my bed last night and get all the tangled yarn together and find the crochet hook that fell out of the weaving of the blanket.
I plan of working on a row of it tomorrow late at night, once I have working on my other goals. 2 years ago
