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:

I have my project bag all ready packed!
