I am on my way to crochet group this morning at the local coffee shop, AND I'm going to order a pumpkin spice latte'. I haven't updated you on our group in awhile. There were times our little group couldn't meet this summer, but for the most part, we worked it out.
Debbie was making a blanket,....she has HAD IT with this blanket pattern. She kept adding a stitch somewhere and her blanket kept getting bigger.....and wider.....and bigger.....She has started the darn thing over several times. That big ball of yarn in the first picture. Yep...that'd be hers! The big ball of yarn in the picture below that K is winding. That'd be Debbie's ball of yarn as well. Same blanket. As a matter of fact, we have nicknamed her
"One who walks with big ball of yarn!"
OK So, at this point, Debbie is D.O.N.E. with this blanket!
And here's K! She's our over achiever! She got her blanket finished, is working on another one, has made some handwarmers "just for fun" and finished them!
This is as far as I've gotten with my pack from Wool Warehouse (Attic 24)
I just drool over it! I can't wait to start it but I must finish the blanket I am working on first.
It's one I started on awhile back, then ripped out because I didn't like the colors. See this post.
Here are some progress pictures...
I still have the rest of the red to go and then the last row of the aqua-ish blue color.
The blanket pattern called for two skeins of yarn held together and you use a Q hook, so it'll be a thick poncho, but the yarn is not wool so I don't think it will be that warm to wear. More like a light sweater.
Have a great Thursday!
