The hands have been busy lately. I haven’t caught up on my old projects but I did start new ones. Like this crochet blanket:
Just a random, huge granny square blanket that I somehow fell into. I crash-landed in crochet land a few months ago when I started the Big-A$$ Crochet Blanket. No sightings of Tom Hanks or a creepy-looking volleyball, but bets aren’t off just yet. I did another blanket like this a few years ago for a friend’s little one, but this one will get to be much bigger. I’m whittling down the stash with this puppy. Using whatever I can find that works with an H hook. Heck, I might even double some thinner yarns just to get them used up.

4)Hollered 400000 times at the cat to ‘Stay off the %$%$ table!’
5)Flip-flopped on whether I was

Ok, back to the trenches!
