All finished! Don't mind my toes...
All in all a pretty fun project. I would say though that I'm terrible at sewing, so maybe next time I'll just zipper join everything. It'll lay flat and I won't have to sew...which I have no faith in my blanket holding up.
I am working on a pattern right now for a coffee sleeve. You know, those paper things that you put around your coffee at a Starbucks? Yeah, it's one of those. Here's what I have so far, it's really a "rough draft" because I've never written a pattern before, so I'm just going to share a picture for now.
This is a Sailor Neptune coffee cozy. I worked it in continuous rounds rather than slip stitching and it's very apparent, so...I guess I won't be doing that next time? The continuous rounds makes it look really sloppy in my opinion. I will probably go up a hook size or add a couple stitches around because it was a little bit too snug. Definitely going to try again soon, but I am working on something else right now.
Finally, I have to share because I took this picture on Easter and it makes me laugh every time I see it because my dog has the cutest face!
She's the sweetest, kindest, loving dog I've ever known. Her name is Mia and she is a fully rehabilitated dog now. Took long enough, but she is so worth it.
Anyway, enough gushing about my Mia Dumb Face. Happy stitching, everyone!
