Crochet Along Weeks 4 and 5

I have been gone from the crochet along posts for the last few weeks, but I'm still here, I promise! I was in Washington / Idaho for most of last week, so I got a bit behind on updating the CAL posts. I have been working on the blanket, little by little. But I am realizing that I have A LOT more to do! So these next few weeks will be critical. This is what I have so far:

4 complete squares
7 with 2 complete layers (white centers with the green middle section)
9 small white squares
15 small green squares

My goal for this week: 17 complete squares. That means finishing up all of the white center squares. It is a big goal, but I just may be able to finish it!

And another reason I am so behind, I'm working on a blanket for a sweet baby girl due in July. I want to get both done now, and keep switching back and forth between the 2 projects. Here is a work in progress pic of the heart blanket:

Question for this week: What gets you in the mood to crochet? I'm always in the mood to do something crafty, especially if I am in the middle of a project. Right now, I'm just trying to focus on FINISHING projects! haha I do like to crochet with a tv show (Grey's Anatomy, Glee, Vampire Diaries, etc) or a movie.

What inspires you to crochet, or what do you have in the background while working, dear readers?


  1. Great job! And two projects?! I can barely keep up with the one. :)

  2. It looks like you are well on your way! I'm crocheting a capelet right now and watching The Deadliest Catch -- although Glee sounds good too.


Comments make me happy! Thanks for leaving a word to let me know you are reading! :)
