This week I did a LOT of work on my heirloom afghan, which I’ve been using for my Thursday posts. Be sure to come check out the progress tomorrow!
Since I’ve been trying to get the afghan done before Saturday, I only have a few other updates. My skirt is twice as wide as it was last week. The skirt row gauge is still really off, so I’m just going to repeat the row I’m on for more repeats than it says until it hits the width it’s supposed to be at, which is in the vicinity of 12 inches.
I also made 5 squares out of the leftover solid colors from my afghan. I suspect I’ll just dig through my stash for more acrylic and make them into a scrapghan. The squares are about 8 inches, so 16 of them would be baby-blanket sized when joined together, and 25 of them would make a decent throw. I’m using the book 200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws, and afghans by Jan Eaton.
The patterns are really easy to follow, but it is way uncool to advertise 200 blocks and have a bunch of them end up being alternate color schemes. Also, if you’ll notice, one block up there is called “pastel delight’. My colors are not pastel. Why would you name something meant to be many colors after only certain colors? Just a pet peeve, I guess.
