January Craft Roundup

This year, I’ve decided to try doing a craft roundup at the beginning of every month for the prior month.

Of course, I’ve somehow managed to lose all the pictures I took of the gifts I made for one of my friends. It’s a shame. They turned out nicely.

However, I did manage to make myself a new pair of mittens. Finally.

A pair of handmade mittens with a section that flips over the fingers.I had made myself a pair years ago, and promptly lost one of them. Each year, I told myself I’d make matching mitten to replace the one I lost.

Of course, I lost the orphan mitten.

So, there we go. A new pair for this year. I didn’t follow a pattern, but I like how they turned out.

I’ve also decided to make a temperature blanket for this year. One row gets crocheted per day, and the color is decided by that day’s high temperature. Since I’ve been using scrap yarn, it’ll probably be more colorful than most people’s.

A partially finished crochet blanket.I like how it’s turning out so far. January has been rather cold, hense the blues and purple. That purple is actually 22 degrees and under. The dark blue is right around the freezing point, and the lighter blue is above freezing.

Hopefully, February will be more productive.
