An Update

I've been taking a break from writing patterns for a while now. I've tried to still respond to comments on posts here and on Ravelry, where my username is crazyalyssa.
I took a break from knitting and crocheting for a while, to focus on other things, and to work on a counted cross stitch project that I began about six years ago. I would do tiny bits at a time, then get bored and put it down. I came across it last January, and decided I wanted to finally finish it. It took me such a long time, but I finally completed it.

This was my first large needlepoint project, and I'm not sure I'll have the patience to do another one for a long time! Following those tiny charts and stitches may have killed my up close vision though!

After finishing it, I washed it as per the instructions, and framed it. I've been dancing since kindergarten, and ballet means so much to me.

After finishing that, I decided I wanted to crochet a blanket. I liked this square, and then swatched it. I then edited it a bit to make it smaller and have fewer rows. Here is my final blanket, Victorian Lattice Throw.

As for the blog, I hope to start writing a few patterns again. I don't think I will be posting as often as I previously did, as I simply don't have time, but I would love to get back into it. I have tried to answer questions as they come up, but sometimes I forget what the pattern was, since I may have made it four or five years ago, and I may have given the scarf as a gift, or not have it with me to look at to answer questions.

I know a lot of people ask for videos for some projects, so I would also like to figure out how to start doing that too.

XOXO, Alyssa
