I saw a picture of a crocheted
afghan and I totally love it and I have to
make one for myself. The chart for it is here but I
don't totally love the chart. The blackoutlines are not all the same width, and
the words at the bottom seemed uneven, and most importantly, the eagle for
Ravenclaw doesn't have its wings stretched out like I imagine. So I'm currently
in the process of fixing up the chart. My finished image wont be as nice and
neat, but hopefully the blanket will be perfect. I bought enough yarn to get
started. I might need to go buy more of some colors, like the background, but
I'm going to use up what I have so far. I've never done this Tuinsian Afghan
Stitch before, so I'm not sure how much yarn it will use.
My friend from work is making a really nice wavy blue blanket and I want
to make one in green and beige, hopefully with simply soft yarn.
I could only find one beige and two greens that matched in simply soft
and I was hoping for 5 colors total. So I'm going to do dk green, green,
beige, green, dkgreen, green, beige... instead of dk green, green, beige,
dk green, green, beige stripes. I think....
I bought most of the yarn, now I just need to start it.
My cat loved the blanket I was crocheting so much! She was soo cute
sleeping on it while I was trying to work. I'm going to make a smaller
blanket for her out of the same type of yarn. I'm going to make some
purple flower granny squares with a grey background that matches her
fur so it doesn't look too dirty!
I made my very first granny square
It was fun! So I made myself a purse and one for my mom too. I still have
to sew a lining into them and I will take pictures when that is complete.
A full sized blanket that has a star like pattern. It's made of small
dimons shaped sections. I got the pattern free from walmart and started the
project with my friend maggie. She finished her blanket a while ago, so
I've got some catching up to do.
I finished it! Picture up soon...
A little 'evening purse'. It ended up about the size of my palm! A bit
smaller then I was expecting.
A cute surprise potholder ;) - it was two turtles!
