The week in review: February 3 through February 7, 2013

One thing I did not cover in my regular blog posts this week was the release of a second design I sold to Red Heart, makers of my beloved Red Heart Super Saver yarn.

Based on the twelve-day afghan:

Twelve-day afghan

— which I entered in the 2006 North Carolina State Fair where it received a blue ribbon — I reworked the design to meet the size requirements for a throw, and the Crochet Circles Throw was born:

Red Heart Yarns "Crochet Circles Throw"
Red Heart Yarns “Crochet Circles Throw”

As for my crochet activity today, I got started on two future pig faces:

crochetbug, crochet pig faces, crochet hexagons, anne halliday, crochet blanket, crochet afghan, pink
Two future pig faces

and in an effort to tidy up and have fewer pieces of the “If pigs (and dogs and birds and bears and frogs and lions and turtles) could fly” project to lose, I started the work of piecing together this UFO:

crochetbug, anne halliday, crochet hexagons, crochet afghan, crochet pigs, crochet frogs, crochet bear, crochet birds
I begin piecing together my If pigs (and dogs and birds and bears and frogs and lions and turtles) could fly project

While I had hoped to have it done in time for my nearest Project Linus Chapter’s Make-A-Blanket Day, I am reasonably certain I will not be able to get it done in time for the February 16 festivities, but since Project Linus needs donations year round, I will still be able to donate this blanket whether or not I get it done by next Saturday.

Now, for the week in review!
