Dusting Off The Cobwebs
In crochet news I finally finished the afghan I started in December 2008 that was meant as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law...just in time for Christmas 2009. I'm terrible, I know, life and laziness just got in the way. I have issues with crocheters block when working on large projects. Excuses, excuses. I used the round ripple pattern found HERE. I picked the pattern because it had fewer holes in the center than other round ripple patterns I'd seen. It worked up quickly (when I put my ass in gear to work on it) and the instructions were easy to follow. I used Lion Brand Suede that I got for a dollar a skein at a local dollar store and a J hook. I never took any measurements, but it's definitely big enough to cover up with and keep warm. My mother-in-law was very pleased and so was I!
I'm hoping to start a small crochet project today as soon as I figure out what pattern I want to tackle. Ravelry has my mind spinning at the moment! Tomorrow, we tie-dye! Nathaniel has some old jeans he wants me to make as wacky and weird as I can and Geof and I have a few shirts to dye as well. That should be fun!
I'm off to catch up on my blog reading...see you all around the web!
