This year, I pledged to make 50 lemons for the Craft Yarn Council Lemon Drive. You can read more about it and find out how you can contribute here. I ended up having so much fun making them that I made over 150 lemons! So many, they can’t even fit in the photo!
I was lucky enough to receive free supplies from Yarnspirations and Fairfield. I also lucked out on a local resale page and scored free bags of filling! The most I spent was on shipping!
This drive is being held in preparation for a Mega Lemon Drop in January. I initially came across this event because of National Stress Awareness month every April. The lemon pattern is written by Twinkie Chan for this event.
I hope all these lemons have brightened your day!
Here’s another gift! I love finding these cool blanket patterns, but I have more blankets than I could use in a lifetime.
For this project, I decided to use yarn I already had in my stash. It’s a mix of brands, but they seem to have come together very nicely!
This gift is not meant to be given until Christmas, but I thought I’d get a good start since my favorites I’ve made can take as long as 2-3 months. A day or two into the project, I realized I’m nearly halfway done! This is also when I found how to do a join-as-you-go technique for hexagons, and I just had to go into overdrive out of excitement!
I used less yarn than I thought I would per hexie, so I think this would make a good scrap yarn project! But let’s save that for another time!
