A Little Bit Different Sort of Crochet Project

I know I have been more or less absent from here lately and I'm sorry about that. I'm behind on the CAL to make my chi's hats, posting Monday pattern link and the photo a day for June. Life has just gotten in the way.

I'm frogging a blankie I made for Opi and Nellie Belle a few years ago out of magic ball (left over) yarn. The stitches were too big and their little paws got tangled up.  Out of the salvaged yarn, I am spool knitting a super-thick cord and crocheting it with an "S" hook into a round comfy  mat for them to have on the chilly floor. This is a project to work on when I'm out on the patio. I must say this is a very time consuming thing to make.

I have some more things to share with you but that's for another time. I'm still trying to catch up on my blog reading.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Today this spool knitting book is free on Amazon. Be sure to check the price at checkout to ensure  that it is still free.



  1. Welcome back! I've missed seeing your regular posts. Crazy how life can get some time. I hope all is well with you and your family.
    The mat is looking very nice; I didn't know there was such a large hook!

    1. Refrigerator went out, had granddaughter over for a few days and then lost my crochet mojo for a while but I'm back at it again. :)

  2. I love the different colors together, they look awesome. It's storming here. ;-( Hugs
