Winter Project Link Party


Welcome to March's Winter Project Link Party! This is our last link party for the winter; it's hard to believe we're in March already! I hope you'll want to join in with the party and share what you've been working on this winter. It doesn't matter if you haven't linked up before, all are welcome to join!


I'm still working on my Sunburst granny squares. We've been inundated with illness at our house lately (including me right now - hack), so I haven't been crocheting as much as I was a few weeks ago, but I've still managed to finish about ten squares since the last party, and I've joined a few more too. I'm still enjoying the squares a lot. They're easier than they look and they make up really fast. It's so nice to feel inspired by crochet again; I went several months feeling bored and antsy with everything I tried, and now I'm feeling motivated and excited. I'm in no hurry, though; it's nice to have a smaller-scale project to pick up as I feel like it.


I'm also working a little at a time on a small chevron-ripple throw. I had lots of worsted-weight acrylic yarn, taking up precious craft-storage space, and I've decided it's time to use it. I was thinking about making a new throw or two for the living room, so this is a great use for the yarn. I have odd amounts of each color, so I'll just use as much as I have and move on to the next. I really like doing a ripple design. This one is a basic 19-stitch repeat: 8dc on the uphills and downhills, sk2 in the valleys, 3dc in the peaks. Neat and sweet.

  1. Hi Jennifer, glad I found you. Unfortunately I have nothing to share at the moment, but I will be happy to join your future link parties. So nice that you organize these cool events. All the best!

  2. I'm a little sad that this is the last link party Jennifer :( This one cropped up on me unexpectedly! I hope to link up a little later than usual. Love the colours of your two projects. I'm getting a little bit of stash build-up these days too. Making the remnants into a big project is appealing ... something from nothing, right? Hope you're feeling better soon. I'm under the weather today too, which is rare for me. A little knitting seems perfect for today.

  4. I love seeing your granny project grow and I get a kick out of mine having one too, though it is different due to being a quilt one! :) My grandmother crocheted, though, and I still have an afghan of hers that was used throughout the time that my children were growing up...it's been washed a bazillion times and is still in wonderful condition. I think quilted items are more fragile :(

  5. I always enjoy your link parties and I'll be adding mine in soon. Both these projects look fabulous. I especially like the chevron throw - I can never resist a chevron,I think it's my favourite pattern... Happy crocheting! X

  7. Such pretty blankets Jennifer. Your granny blanket is beautiful and I really like the ripple blanket too. I'm sorry you're still not feeling well and pray that you'll soon be over this nasty bug.
    Blessings, Betsy

  9. Thank you for the link! I am sad it is the last one for this winter :-( I am so glad you found your crochet mojo again Jennifer. Making those little flower circles is immensely enjoyable, I remember this from my own crochet flower circle blanket. I also love your chevron blanket, the raspberry is a beautiful colour. Wishing you a speedy recovery xx
