Pixel Deadpool Afghan In Progress..Still!!

My project a little over half way done!

Well hello there!  I was really hoping that I would have been done with this monstrosity by now but, as you can obviously see I've yet to see the finish line for this one.  I ran out of black yarn AGAIN so I have to take myself to Walmart so I can pick up a few large skeins and I'm about to rum=n out of the yarn for the background so I'm going to have to pick up a few more skeins for that as well.

On a positive note, I finally reached the eyes so that's cool!  Once I can I'll get a more updated picture of my progress.

Never underestimate the power of a granny square!

This Granny Square Is Done!

I honestly cannot tell you how excited I actually am to have finished this in only three days!  Connecting my granny squares together with double crochets was one of the most fun techniques that I've tried with any of my crocheting projects and I look forward to doing a project similar to this again soon.  

Now I just need to get it shipped out before my nephew grows out of this blankie!

What are you crocheting today??

My Second Mini Chop After Color Damage!!!

Here's a before picture of my hair a few weeks before my mini chop.

The top left is a final before picture and the last three pictures are the results of my mini chop!

I wasn't planning on doing a mini chop this soon but, after looking at photos of my hair from some years back, I decided that I had to take some kind of action to get rid of the damaged hair that I was still holding onto.

At the end of it all I'm glad that I went with a mini chop versus a big chop and I look forward to doing another mini chop within the next 3 to four months!

Cheers to healthier hair!

A Gift For Lennox : Another Granny Square Dream In The Making!

Hey there!!  Can you tell that I'm not quite tired of granny squares yet??  Let me tell you right now that I haven't loved granny squares anymore than I do now because there's just so much that can be done with them!  Now I didn't get to finish my Deadpool project because I'm once again out of yarn, but I was able to get this lovely project done for our new nephew.  If all is well I can have this in the mail and on its way home within the next week.

The main element that makes me so excited about this project is that I used this gift in the making to teach myself how to double crochet my squares together!  I usually will whip stitch my squares together or I'll single crochet them together, but I opted to change things up to learn something new.

I'm also really excited to be using a larger crochet hook again for this particular project since I've been so used to crocheting with smaller hooks.

Well this is my small project on the side that I HAD to share with you since I'm so excited about it! Check out the link that I'm sharing on this post if you want to learn more how to crochet your granny squares together as well!
