Mermaid Me Blanket

 So last time I gave an update on the Mermaid Me Blanket, I said all I had to to was the outer edge.
 However I decided to add a ruffle around the motifs. I a not sure if this was wise. It made the blanket a little heavy and I think it took away the "scaled" look of the mermaid tail. On the plus side, it does look pretty good.

 So all I do have left is the outer edge.

Tablet Art

Every so often I fell like drawing.  All these are done in my tablet, except for the last one done on my iPhone.

It Is Almost Done

The Mermaid Me Blanket is almost done. All that is left to do is the edging. I am not a fan if the edging in the pattern, so I am changing  it up. That is still a work in progress.

Butterfly


Once I Crochet Tunisian Butterfly on Crochet Geek, I knew I had to make one. 
I did a few differences,  I used my the pattern stitch from the Tunisian and Crochet Scarf.
I also added the antenna which I though made it look more like a butterfly. To make the antenna I chained 12, 2 sc in the second chain from hook, and slip stitch in the remaining chains. Of course you make 2 and sew in the top of the butterfly.

Finished Shawl


I needed a little break from the Mermaid Me blanket and finished up a shawl that was almost done. The fringe is the same pattern that is going to be on the Mermaid Me blanket. 
I was going for a transition of colors from one end to another. I am not sure if I achieved that look. 

It is a basic shell pattern of 5 dc and 1 sc with a row of dc and ch 2.

You can't tell from the pictures, but the pattern reminds me of trees. Next time I would use colors that will make it look like trees.

Update On Mermaid Me Blanket

So I am in getting close to finishing the Mermaid Me blanket. I only have 6 rows of motifs to do. You can see the mermaid tail forming in the blanket.  Hopefully I will have this finished by in a week or two.

Teddy Bear Face



I really wasn't trying to make a face, I just started out making a ball.  
Before I knew it, it had transformed into a teddy bear face.
