I have a little finish to show you today and a blast form the past that has been languishing in my crochet basket for, well....I don't even want to think about how long!
Here's what I was stitching throughout the week...
What should have been a relatively quick to stitch design took far longer than it should have! First of all, I managed to mix up the thread colours and sorted what should have been a blue and labeled it as a purple....and if that wasn't bad enough, I picked up the wrong pink and started stitching with it (that's what happens when you're trying to watch Game of Thrones while stitching!) Needless to say the frog was firmly ensconced with me this week.
The end result was worth all the hassle and the muttering under my breath that I did...
Hopefully the frog will move on now and not hang around! If anyone would like him, just let me know....I can post worldwide! :)
I also decided that it was time to finally finish a crochet project that has been in my work basket for way too long. I can't even remember when I started this blanket or the last time I even worked on it! I could look back at this blog and find out, but I think it would be too embarrassing to say.
Anyhoo, when I took it out of the basket I was surprised that it as almost finished....why oh why did I ever abandon it? Of course, I couldn't remember where I had found the pattern or what size of crochet hook I had used.....yet another reason to never abandon a project half way through.
Luckily for me, in a rare moment of sensibility, I had purchased enough yarn (Caron Simply Soft) to complete the project so I don't have to worry about finding the right shade of yarn. I think that I have only about three repeats of the wave pattern to get to the length that I want and then find a suitable pattern for the edging. I might even just do a few rows of just double crochet for the edging so that it doesn't take away from the wave pattern....watch this space!!!
Until next time....happy stitching!
