So yeah, I started yet another project today, ’cause I need to start a new project like I need a hole in the head lol. To give some background on this new project, I started crocheting an afghan for my husband 9ish years ago. It’s still not finished. I ran out of yarn and couldn’t find where I put the rest of the yarn for the project (to be fair we’ve moved a couple times over the years…it’s in a box…somewhere); well, then I found the yarn…and now I can’t find the pattern book. So why not just look at what I’ve already done and go from there, you ask? It’s one of those with a geometric design and it involves chaining over the skipped stitches in one color then coming back and stitching in the skipped stitches with the other color and I can’t remember how I’m supposed to do the pattern. So it’s on hold for now. Meanwhile, every time I start a new project he asks me when I’m going to finish his blanket. I feel bad; it’s been almost 10 years now. The boy deserves his blanket lol.
So I went to Jo-Ann Fabric yesterday (I had coupons, why not, right?) and started looking around and found two different afghan books that looked promising (’cause, you know, I don’t have a dozen books at home already, but whatever). As a bonus, they had Red Heart Supersaver and With Love yarns on sale as well as all of the Lion Brand yarns. So finally decided on the With Love yarn, it’s a little more expensive than the Supersaver, but it’s got such a nice feel to it and works up really nicely. To be fair, I probably could have picked one of the Lion Brand yarn varieties, but I’ve really only used their Homespun yarn, which is a chunky yarn, and I’m just more familiar with the Red Heart varieties. Tomorrow I’ll upload pictures and the actual information on things, today I had to get the blog up and going lol.
So, as of right now, my current projects in progress include:
- Husband’s afghan (red, black, and white) – just begun
- Baby blanket for my friend due next weekend (variegated green, grey, and white) – almost complete
- Baby blanket just because (self striping peach) – maybe a third finished
- Dish cloth (variegated brights and yellow) – about half finished
Oh, don’t know how long it’s running, but went to the Joann Fabric website today and they’re having a site wide sale… I bought yarn for two more baby blanket projects *facepalm*. I’m a glutton for punishment lol.
