Refreshing Throw Crocheted by Sakeenah 3

WIP Wednesday: Refreshing Throw – Almost Done!

The point on this WIP Wednesday is twofold. First, to exclaim from the mountain tops that after weaving in the ends I am DONE with the Refreshing Throw!

WIP Wednesday: Refreshing Throw

Current work in progress: Refreshing Throw as a baby blanket. I’m using Stylecraft Special DK, which I’m loving. All the squares are done now.

What’s projects are you working on this week?       Thanks for stopping by! Let’s connect: Subscribe to be notified of new posts, and join me on Instagram , Pinterest, Facebook, G+ or Twitter.
