I forgot to write this post up last night, so now I’m rushing to get it done before work! Good thing I got up early! Got a bunch of stuff in progress.
Mike’s present is done. I don’t think I can put that up on Friday because he doesn’t get it until Saturday. What a pain!
Next up is the purse that all the Crazy Crochet Ladies have been working on. It’s a basketweave purse and originally it was made with bulky yarn held double stranded, but I can’t find any affordable bulky weight kitchen cotton anywhere so I just got worsted and I’m making this with an I hook. I hope I can find handles I like.
Next is the start of the Washed Ashore Afghan, which I started at the Crazy Crochet Lady meeting on Saturday because I didn’t have anything else to crochet and I figured it’d be a good stash buster. I’ve had this yarn since a friend’s yarn gave it to me for a blanket, and that blanket is done and I STILL HAVE YARN! I may not have enough to finish the blanket, but I’ll just go as far as I can. No big deal.
Last but not least I got a huge chunk of the Aeolian shawl for one of my bridesmaids done. I motored through the final agave chart and got 12 rows into the shortened edging chart. Then my size 14 hook I use for beading fell off my desk and fell hook first into the floor. Needless to say, the stupid flimsy thing is now broken, haha! I’ve ordered some new ones.
I couldn’t take a picture in the sunlight this time, so it isn’t as pretty as the last picture of it was. And you can’t see the beads. I found my real camera though, so I took it with that and at least the flash allows us to see all the lace detail. :)
