Rolling Right Along

I like rolling my yarn into balls before starting a project.
Makes the pulling of yarn that much easier as I crochet along.
The granny squares for the baby blanket are working up really fast.
Unfortunately, the days are passing by just as quickly.
Before I know it, the day is done and there's still so much I want to do.
Hope your day is going well.

The days go by way too quickly!

I love these soft gray crochet goodies. Will make a fine baby blanket.

Ana BC said...

Nice progress! Will you be using more colors, or just this wonderful blue?

Quinn said...

I don't know how people manage to knit or crochet without the supervision of cats! :)

I know! Where does the time go? I am beat and winding down at 3:30 in the afternoon and I have gobs more to do.
Your yarn and granny squares are really nice! I love the color you chose...a baby? Where? Who? Or just to have on hand?
Is that some of the yarn Sam brought back for you? It looks really soft.
I better go try and do something. LOL!

You've made a great start on your squares. The colour is beautiful.
Enjoy the days.

oh my, you are on a roll (sorry, couldn't help myself...)

Betsy said...

The days do seem to fly by don't they? I just spurged on some yummy yarn from Paradise fiber today. When I got home I wound it into balls and just sat and squeezed it for awhile. :-)

Love your kitty. I lost mine two years ago and I'm still lost without him. Hubby says no for now though so I love to look at other people's fur babies.

Blessings,
Betsy

Dearest Tammy,
Indeed, time slips like sand between our fingers... But you are rolling along fast! Enjoy whatever you accomplish in a day. There will be another day; God willing.
Hugs to you,

Beautiful granny squares. Jingles looks right at home among the yarns and crochet. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

I have a ball winder but I never use it, I like to wind my own balls of yarn. I feel like I get to know the yarn that way and there are no surprises of knots in the middle. Love your gray.
hugs,
Meredith

I also love to roll my yarn into balls. I once did an afghan that had 16 tiny balls of yarn twisted here and there, while slowly making a magnificent Monarch butterfly of many colors. My kitten also loved the many balls rolling about.
I can't wait to see your finished blanket for one lucky baby.
Blessings

I can't wait to see the finished baby blanket...love the colors.

Blessings always

I'm always amazed at how much you accomplish Tammy, especially with working most of the time as well...
The baby blanket will be so loved - dear Jingles has already given his stamp of approval I see!

hugs

Love the color on your granny squares and your cat is so cute! Even though it seems like time is just flying by if you look back you will find a huge amount of accomplishments... Then it's all worth it, especially if ou are still having fun !

Hi tammy

Lovely grannies. Very neat too. And Jingles' cute too. A day is what we make out of it. Catch it before it slips into another day. Great to see you spend your day fruitfully.

Have a great day
Aishwarya

Little Treasures said...

Love the shade of grey for the blanket!

Linda said...

I think you surely must crochet as fast as you type! :O Wow!

I'm not nearly as busy with my hands as you. My evenings, in contrast, involve cooking dinner, laundry, cleaning up dinner, plopping down to watch a little tv before climbing into bed. Exciting, I know. :)

We are enjoying some nice days this week though - upper 30s for temps and a little sunshine and I did a 3 1/2 mile walk yesterday on my lunch at work and will do that again today. Only the wind is cold, but I always wear a hat!

Happy mid-week already,
Linda

YOUR GRANNY SQUARES CAME OUT REALLY NICE.....THE BLANKET WILL BE SO PRETTY......RIZZI

Susan said...

Hi Tammy...Guess what? The days fly by on this side of the world, too.

I find that when I write down things I want to get done, they are more likely to get done.

I'll be glad when spring arrives. Susan

Lynn said...

This is one thing I really should take the time to learn, the granny squares. I can knit but had to stop due to severe tendonitis, maybe crochet would be gentler.

Lisa said...

Adorable cat and the squares are looking great. (love granny squares!)

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Your kitty is so cute! Last night we ate dinner then I looked at the clock. I said to my husband, "Is it really 8:00 already?!" Seemed like I just got home! The nights go by too fast.

Time does fly when you are having fun doesn't it?!!
LOVE that shade of blue, it's like denim!
