Yarn Along: Pippa Patchwork Blanket Week 1


It has been quite some time since I've joined the Yarn Along. I'm looking forward to joining again with weekly or bi-monthly posts. 

Reading This week 

I am reading Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup. Along with purging my house, I am putting myself on a strict budget. Something I will get into a little more next week. This is one of five books I checked out from the library on the subject. 

I am only about 50 pages from being done and have learned quite a bit about myself and my spending habits, as well as ways to budget and rethink buying things I don't need. I also love that each chapter includes Bible verses that pertain to the chapter's content. This book is a Christian book produced by the Christian publisher, Zondervan. If that is not up your alley you will probably want to skip it.

Crocheting 

I've finally started my new living room throw. I chose the super cute Pippa Patchwork Baby Blanket pattern by Little Doolally. My two favorite things to crochet are scarves and blocks/squares and this pattern is nothing but squares! 

I'm also thrilled that I get to use my new Amour crochet hook from Clover. I got several different sizes before Christmas, but haven't been able to put them use. . .until now!

I know a lot of people like to be challenged when they crochet, but not me! I like to be able to put on Hulu, pick up my crochet, and go to town without thinking about what I am doing. Most of the blocks are solid colors, which will be perfect for TV watching, but there are also a few patterned ones that will be a bit more challenging and require more attention.
