New Blankets

I have started another Sophie's Universe!  I really want a blanket that is in your face bright, sort of the gypsy look?  I think that this fits the bill.  I have to admit that I am loving it more than my brown, red and teal one.

I also want a lapghan for snuggling into while watching TV at night now that winter is fast approaching. I love squares and decided to do 6 inch ones using the BAM 2015 squares and any others that I see on Ravelry that I like. So this morning I got started, two done and dusted! 

Smoothfox's May flower the BAM 6" square for April

Shelley Husband's Garden Gate (Pattern on Ravelry)
This is the BAM 2015 April Filler, I love it, but it was a bit tricky, there was a lot of frogging at the beginning.

I'll be back soon with more crochet goodness.

Sophie's Universe Cal

I think I have OCD!  (Obsessive Crochet Disorder) A while back a friend showed me the cal she was working on, it looked so complicated that I thought I could never cope with that!  Yesterday that same friend was visiting and I was proudly showing her my blocks from the BAM2015 cal.  She looked at me  squarely in the face do the Sophie!  "I have some wool that I don't want but they are the colours you have in your lounge."  I hummed and hared, saying, "maybe".  Later that night she dropped off a bag it contained the wool.  So while watching TV I hooked this!
