Day 3

Okie dokie! I got on a roll today. I did rows 21-40! Yay! Here are little Yoshi's feet!

Day 2

Day 2: Rows 11-20....

I got these done yesterday, plus some! I got to row 30 last night, and was so excited...until I realized I was on Row 30 on my pattern and Row 28 on my blanket. So, I went back and started the counting to see where I went wrong, and yep, Row 21 and 22 were missing. Nice. So I had to undo all the way back to row 20. But at least I got yesterday's work done yesterday!

I am honestly having such a good time doing this, even with my little mistake!

Welcome to 10 Rows A Day!

Hi! My name is Becky. I love to crochet, and just recently, decided to start selling my work. My kids and I love Mario, so we decided to attempt to sell Mario crochet pillows. Well, I managed to meet an AMAZING first customer, but she decided she didn't want a pillow, she wanted a blanket. LOL. I was perfectly fine with that, and I am sooo excited about doing it for her. When I say AMAZING, I really honestly mean it. She understands when you have sick kids that want to be held, and that it is hard to crochet with one hand. She understands that this blanket might take a while, and she is fine with it. I can only hope that every customer I get for the rest of my life will be this understanding and amazing. Oh, and she has bragged on the pillow so much, I do believe my head has swelled up! LOL.

So, that being said, the point of my blog is to see how the work progresses. I have a rule of 10 rows a day. The pattern I am doing is 160 rows long, therefore, it will take 16 theory. LOL. For this blanket, and this customer, this is what I would love to do. And 10 rows a day is not that much....right?

My customer has ordered a Yoshi throw blanket. Here is the picture of Yoshi that I am doing...

Isn't he adorable?!?!?! I love Yoshi! And here is my first day's work...

And this is what the first 10 rows look like...
Excuse the mess on my floor. I see the housekeeper didn't do her job today. Silly housekeeper. LOL. Ok, That was my work for day one, on to Day 2!
