Pink fuzzy stash buster blanket

Like many knitters, I have a lot of extra yarn, almost all leftovers from other projects, and I didn’t know what to do with it because there wasn’t quite enough to make anything except perhaps hand mitts or a scarflette, and I have tons of those.

So I decided to combine them all to make a blanket using Tunisian crochet!



I think it’s pretty! Here’s the Ravelry link in case you were interested: http://ravel.me/camytang/sbb

I showed the blanket to Captain Caffeine first, then to my friend Dineen Miller. After my visit with Dineen, I complained to the Captain:

Me: I showed Dineen my pink fuzzy blanket and she expressed the proper exclamations of praise for it.

Captain: Like what?

Me: “Oh, is this your pink fuzzy blanket? It’s so nice! I can’t believe you used all your stash yarn for it! I love how the pink fun fur makes it so cute and fuzzy! It’s so heavy! It’s so soft! It’s so pink! It’s so you!” (I pause for dramatic effect and give the Captain a Significant Look.)

Captain: You mean it’s not enough to say, “It’s nice”?

Me: (Incredulous look.)

Captain: I guess I can see the difference.

Me: !!!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks Kathy! If you crochet, then Tunisian crochet is super easy! I learned from this site: http://www.stitchdiva.com/tutorials/tunisian-crochet
      I used the 3-color Tunisian method. It's great for using up stash yarn!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
