Are you ready for Week 2 of our Scrap Buster Scrapghan CAL??  I am loving using up the bins of all my extra yarn.. This will be a perfect blanket for this winter too.. Very plush, thick and warm!!

COLOR!!! Knit & Crochet Blog Week Day 4… 4KCBWDAY4

I can’t believe it’s already day 4 of this Knit & Crochet Blog Week Celebration!  Today’s assignment is to show and talk about our favorite colors to work with and what colors are in our stash…

I Love Color!  I have so much fun mixing new color ideas in each project… One of my favorite things is to use random colors,,, not trying to match or coordinate… The projects I do this way almost always turn out to be my favorite ones…

Last night I did get done all of my Crochet Goals for the day… I worked on the Ocean Waves Afghan Challenge Blanket… Made a set of Colorful Flower Coasters (see the bottom of this post for a little surprise!), And… I made my first 2 squares for Sarah London’s Crochet-A-Long,,, 2013 Wool-Eaters Motif Blanket… I was one busy Bee!!!!  We also had a fabulous Bible Study,,, Such great ladies in my group!

Wool Eaters Motif’s….


I do lean towards vibrant colors in my projects,,, But Cream is my favorite base color… like in my Sunburst Granny Square Blanket…

Sunburst Granny Square Blanket…


My Stash is a completely different story… It has everything.. I try to pick yarn up when it’s on sale… So when I see something that’s a good deal, I grab it!  I love working with all types of yarns, but my main stash is Acrylic Yarn and Cotton Yarn… The yarn is available in so many great colors now! Love our choices we have to choose from!


This House of Bee’s is going to have to work hard once again today… After work I have to work on both The Challenge Afghan and the Crochet-A-Long… Also,,, I will be working on some project to sell and… Here is my little SURPRISE I promised at the top of the post…

…In the next few days I will post another FREE PATTERN… The Flower Coasters Set Pattern will be available right here at Beatrice Ryan Designs and on my Ravelry Page…


So Here is to Color, Yarn and A New Free Pattern!



Spring Granny Bag…


So here it is… Another bag,,, This month must be an obsession with bags!  This bag started as a Spring Granny Blanket, the colors reminded me of what I would wish for if our spring was here and flowers were blooming… It’s still cold and windy, not to many flowers or buds are out yet.  Here in the North West, at the base of a 14000′ +  mountain it is still not feeling like spring.  I have to make the most of it and brighten up my days with bright crochet projects!



Spring Granny Bag


Just to keep up my theme of the month,, Bags… I have started the next bag!  Nothing to do with Granny Squares which I have been making alot of lately!  It won’t take long, so here is a little peek….



Pansy Garden Bag…


Both of these bags will be making their way to the shop in town, Alpine Originals to be up for sale in the next couple days… The weekend is almost done and my crochet projects have been working up quickly.  I was able to do a little yarn shopping yesterday when we went to my daughters track meet in a larger town about an hour down the canyon.  She picked out the yarn for her blanket  that I will start tomorrow, it’s for a Crochet-a-Long that’s featured at The Crochet Crowd.  I really had fun watching a 17-year-old decide on colors for an afghan for an eclectic room…  At least this way she won’t steal the Sunburst Granny Afghan that I just finished!  Also, Michael’s Craft Store had Cream and Sugar Cotton on sale,,, so I restocked my stash for summer!  Always a great day when I come home with new yarn!


So here is to Bags, Granny Squares, Crochet-a-Longs and Yarn Shopping!
