new trend? c2c crochet graphgan...

Hello to all!

I was looking around on Ravelry for a few baby gift ideas and patterns, while surfing I came across some cute blankets with pictures in them. I have made quite a few myself over the years, but I kept seeing c2c in the pattern name or description... I had no idea what it meant. I had to look! These blankets were so cute and had a lovely texture to them. Here is a great video explaining how to crochet Corner 2 Corner while following a graph.


I had to give this a try! I've made these 'graphagans' before by using single crochet with color changes, single crochet with cross stitch (least fave) and Tunisian crochet (fave!)... So I went searching for charts, graphs, c2c. But the best I found was under pixel art and 8 bit!

Here was my try....it was quite advance considering the color changes...

new year 2018!

Hello to all! Yes, I'm still here! Even if I haven't been here on my blog. Sorry about wasting your time checking in and no updates in so long! Life has changed so much since I've started the blogging adventure! I used to be a SAHM and yes we are busy to, but I always found time for crafting and submitting. I went to school to better my family, graduated and fell in LOVE with my career. Yes, career and not just a job. I am a Certified Dental Assistant! Everyday is filled to helping patients, helping other staff and learning! This year I have really started off self thinking and aweareness about little things I need and want to change for me and my family.
