Since the last update I have made a few blankets all for different reasons. Starting from top to bottom.
I am teaching my cousin how to make this blanket. It is similar to the blanket I am teaching to a couple of close friends. I love how simple these squares are to make, but can change so easily by colors and type of join. The purple one is joined with a slip stitch through the back loops.
Custom orders are available at $65 for up to 3 colors. $5 additional for more colors.
I am in love with this pattern! I made this to give as a gift. I’m not sure if I am ready to give this up. I am already planning at least two more blankets, just bigger! This is the blanket I taught myself the continuous join as you go method.
South Seas Swap
Another tripple S! 🙂 To put it simply, I make a given number of squares and mail them out to others who have agreed to do the same. In the end I have a blanket made up of squares made up by women from all over the U.S. and Canada. After learning the new joining technique I couldn’t wait to dust out this swap (they’ve been sitting in a box for over a year).
Ripples are high on my list of favorite blankets to make. This one is made up of 10 different colors. It’s a great lap size. Perfect for next to the couch, or in a cold office. Made of 100% acrylic yarns, machine wash/dryer, Super warm and cozy.
Available for purchase. $80
I am teaching a couple of friends how to make this blanket (in their own colors). If you’re interested in learning how to crochet, this is a great blanket to start with. The squares are the same pattern and the Purple blanket. The join I used in this method is the continuous join as you go. To me, this feels like a very different blanket.
Available for sale: $80, Custom orders (4 colors) $100.
A friend is going through some hard times. I was trying to think of ways that I could help make their day a little brighter. I dusted this blanket out from it’s box and new it had to go to her. The women who swapped in this group are full of a type of love that isn’t found in many places. They are always making blankets for those who need a warm hug on those hard days. This blanket is being sent off in hopes that when they need a big warm hug,they can wrap themselves in this and feel support stitched into each square.
Contact me privately (Shelby Sheas Stitches @ gmail (dot) com )iIf you know of someone needing the same kind of hug. The South Seas is up for grabs.
Wow! Thank you if you read through all of that. You’re a troope!.
MUCH MUCH LOVE
