the daily square

crocheting a blanket, one square at a time.
I have a terrible social anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism, and I recently learned that October is Selective Mutism Awareness month. So of course I had to make this.

Eyeballed this pattern and made it with Tunisian crochet stitches.

Learned Tunisian crochet for an upcoming project. Normally you know I would make it some ridiculously bright color, but this was the only color I had with me. It looks like some kind of weird chocolate waffle. The edges kept curling a bit, like knitting, so I did a row of sc stitches around the edge and it kind of helped.

This explains my recent absence. Regular posting will resume shortly. 💗
Custom Mario shades of blue shell, with the recipient’s name. I’ve never put a person’s name on a blanket before so that was interesting. I was a little worried that it looked more like a big weird eyeball with the different shades of blue but I think the light shining in (it was in front of a big sliding glass door) really brought out the look I was going for with it.

Yesterday was my birthday but I had to work all day and didn’t have a chance to post this lil cake I crocheted. 💗 I’m eventually going to add stitches around the edge of it and turn it into a square for the blanket. 🎂🎈🎉😝

Loosely based on this pattern; I just glanced at the picture and made up my own because I was kinda in a hurry.
