This week there has been little time for getting crafty. I live in Florida (Panhandle Area) and we have been watching Hurricane Irma and the other two storms brewing down here. There has been daily searches for hurricane supplies, a gas station that has gas, and getting the go bags packed for Mermaid, Hubby, Myself, the 2 cats and the 2 dogs. Luckily it looks like the storm cone is going to miss my area, but I am still so worried for the rest of my state.
When not prepping I have been finishing up the Highlander Poncho for my Father-in-law’s birthday. I love how this thing turned out. I am going to be taking pictures and finishing up the written instructions. I think I am going to look for some pattern testers in the next month or so. If you know anyone who wants to make a unisex poncho that is warm and thick. I has a simple braid that would be good for a beginner who wants to try cables.

I published my Monthly Roundup this week and I am so excited about it. I have already started working on the Pigskin Party and the September Stash Bust. I started on the Dragon Neckwarmer from the book Crochet Ever After (it is the one on the cover). This is the second project I am making out of this book and I love it. I need to see if she has written anything else. I love the detail that she gives in her patterns and the way they look. Seriously go check that book out. I need to do a few more projects out of the book so that I can give you a proper review on the book, but till then just know that I think it is awesome.
I am hoping to get caught up on my Moogly CAL this week too. I hit a bit of a wall working on it over the last month or so because I couldn’t decide what to do with the finished blanket. There are only so many afghans I can keep for myself right. I was thinking about what I want to donate to the Ronald McDonald House this year for the holiday season and it hit me. Who says I have to take all 24 blocks and sew them into one large blanket? So rebel that I am I am going to take the squares and make several smaller blankets. The only part that I am unsure on right now is how to break them up into smaller blankets. I know that the House takes kids from newborn to teenagers but would a teenager appreciate the blanket like a kid would? If I remember right the Moogly CAL has 24 squares so I could make a lapghans with 6 squares, toddler blankets with 4 squares, preemie blankets with 1 square and a large border. What are yall planning to do with your Moogly squares?
