What to muse about today?

one more foot, brick stitch, crazy stitch

One more foot…

So, I have about a foot left to go on the crazy stitch/brick stitch afghan.  It’s really working up fast, you almost don’t realize how quickly it does go…  But it’s now a bit too big to bring to and from work, for the “Ya ya yarn” lunch sessions, so I needed something smaller, more compact to work on.

A while back, I found this heart garland, thought it was pretty cool.  Hello new pin!  With all the leftover red yarn I had from the Angry Bird amigurumi presents, it’s a “free” project.  Gotta love when you already have the yarn and don’t need to buy any new supplies.

Anyway, the pattern seems pretty straightforward, but I must be reading it a bit wrong.  On the third round I needed 8 or 9 stitches (not 5) to get back to the alternating single and 2x single crochets.  Making that small change seems to work pretty well:

Heart

First Heart

I have my project bag all ready packed!

  1. Your blanket is fab! I wish I had more hours in the day :-) The Heart garland is so cute and would be lovely in a baby room in pastels. Avis x

      Thank you! I think the garland is a great work up for small bits… Maybe I’ll see if I can do a flower one for Ash’s room… a star one for Tea’s…

      I have maybe two nights of work to finish the stripes… then I have to figure out the boarder I want for it… It seems like it’s going to need some edging. How do you ever figure out edgings??

    The afgjan is fab!! Look here: http://www.squidoo.com/afghan_borders it gives pics of different edgings that might be something you like. You’re doing so great with these projects. I adore the hearts. And yes,it’s fun to be able to use up ‘scraps’ when making something new. It works the same way with scrapbooking. :-)

      Thank you! That link is pretty cool! I was looking at something like the Tweed one, but hadn’t thought about using two colors. The two browns would look pretty cool together…
