Awkward & Awesome Thursday

Awkward:
-How long it’s been since we’ve washed our bedsheets! Icky! We’ve gotta make a big run to the laundromat this week!
-Franklin being exceptionally smelly the other day! Boston terrier farts are the worst.

Awesome:
-Sleeping owls. Aren’t they adorbs?!
-Watching The Walking Dead season 2 on Netflix! It’s sickeningly well-written and acted!
-Crocheting! My bobble blanket is coming along soooo nicely. I’m actually quite proud of it!
-Finishing ‘Life of Pi’ the novel with Mitchel! We read aloud to each other every night… it’s super romantic! And now we start on the Harry Potter series, since he’s never read it before!!

DIY: Bobble Blanket Update

 

My bobble blanket is really coming along! I know it doesn’t look like much, but it takes a long time to get a row done! Who knew that bobbles would take so much more effort and time than if I had chosen to do a different kind of blanket. Ah well, it will all be worth it in the end when I have a rockin’ blankie! For now, enjoy my rainbow-ish bobble progress!

DIY: Bobble Blankie

After seeing Rachele of The Nearsighted Owl post photos of her Bobble stitch blanket on Instagram, I decided to take up crocheting and try my hand at it!! I have made 2 full designs with lots and lots of messy and incorrect bobbles, before Rachele posted her pattern! Thank goodness for that… I realized that I was supposed to be double crocheting 5 stitches in the SAME stitch. Whoopsie! But I restarted and now I know what I was doing wrong! haha. Here’s where I am now on my third go around:
AND I have a little helper!!
