Inspired by my sis J.B. over at A Life Lived Gracefully, I decided to wrench my crochet hooks from the cold dead hands of those adorable gremlins and make a granny stripe blanket. So I went over to Joanne's (we don't have a lot of craft store options around here, and I'm all about instant gratification), spent a shockingly short amount of time stuffing my basket full of yarn, snagged a couple darning needles, had a brief awkward conversation with a Mennonite lady, paid the indifferent cashier, and headed home with this beautiful haul:
Supposedly it's washable. Lion Brand Wool-Ease; 80% acrylic, 20% wool. I think I'm gonna crochet up a little coaster or something and then wash and dry the crap out of it, just to make sure before I spend months
not finishing this project only to find out that I've made a painstakingly complicated and colorful square of felt.
Thanks for reading! If you like heavy doses of color and weirdness, [editorial note, copied from my mason jar tutorial cause I'm too tired right now to think] please follow me! (c'mon do it. DO IT. peeeeeeer pressure. this is your brain on my blog. um, lol. btw I'm a freakin' weirdo.) I'm on Pinterest and Bloglovin' too. Scissors and Steam is still shiny and new so please share with your friends and help spread the word! I've got TONS more where this came from. :)
