Dog Days of Summer Crochet

Cotton Blanket crocheted for Tails of Hope Foundation, “Blanketed With Love™” Campaign

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July celebration filled with all the good stuff of dogs, illegal fireworks (heehee, just kidding), the people you cherish and lively crafting projects. Today, I'd like to share with you some projects I've been working on.

During the holiday, I found some time to crochet this small blanket for the Blanketed with Love Campaign. Normally, I make a larger blanket, but I had enough of this yarn on hand to make this one for comforting a smaller dog. I used worsted weight cottton by Lily Sugar'nCream Stripes, Violet Stripes. I used 3 skeins and a double crochet stitch (with sc for the edging) and size H crochet hook. Fast and simple to make.

Chemo caps crocheted with KnitPicks Crayon Boucle which is a soft pima cotton perfect for chemo caps because it's so soft and comfortable.

Also finished the Doris Scarf from Pop Goes Crochet that I had been working on and am working on scarf number two. I chose yarn from my stash to make these two scarves. The one pictured is made with Yang (Joy#835) from SWTC and the second with SWTC Vickie Howell Collection, Craft, Candi #770. This is a quick and easy project - fun to make too.

Here's wishing you lazy summer days filled with summer knitting and crochet with all the yarns you love on sale...and a few stashbuster projects sprinkled in along the way.
