Crocheted Blanket For the Frugal Creative

Summer time is not my favorite knitting/crocheting season. It is usually too hot, and I don’t want wool anywhere near me. But I have a ton of left overs from my winter crocheting projects, and a husband who gets annoyed when it is kicking around the house. So it was time to do something with it, and my frugal self said, “no way is it going to the garbage bin.”

I searched then internet and found a granny square pattern that I fell in love with. It is called the Fisherman’s Ring.

These easy and lightweight mini projects are fun to do when your just sitting around watching t.v. or in the backyard enjoying the weather.

The best part is, no more nagging hubby, and this blanket is sure to keep us warm over the cold winter months. That is if I can get all the squares done before the temp drops below the freezing mark.

Frugal & Creative

This winter was a long and cold one. And actually it was perfect weather for one of my favorite hobbies, crocheting. Not only is crocheting creative, it can also be quite inexpensive.

Below are pics of some items I made over the winter:
