I started a few new things this weekend since I was not in the mood to work on anything I’ve already started. (Shocking, I know.) So here we go…
The square I started… It’s not 12 inches like I stated in my previous post. It’s just 8 inches when complete, although I crochet loose so it’ll probably be 9 or 10. This is just the middle part. The color reflected in this picture is not right. The below picture shows the true color.
This is from Leisure Arts 2986
I ordered the book just for this one pattern, but there are 30 square patterns in the book.
This is the table runner I started and am about to the half-way mark…you work from the center out and then come back and do the other side. I need to run to H.L. today for another skein of wool before I can finish it. I’m using four different colors, one of which is variegated.
I love the fall colors of it. Everything in my house is one of these colors it seems. I’m a lover of all things brown. (Except men. Hee-hee.) Behave, Pamela. Okay.
I started the Cable Cushion Cover.
It just seemed like a big mess at first. It really seemed like I was doing it all wrong, but I followed the instructions carefully and just kept with it. Finally it began to take the correct shape, but I was worried there for awhile. It tends to curl up on the starting edge and just feels like a big lumpy wad of yarn at first. To be honest, that’s what it still feels like, but you can see how it’s taking shape. I’m confident it will turn out perfectly. Ah-hem.
Here’s a picture of it so you can see the curling first row or two. And this is after much pulling and patting and bending and shaping. I’m using Vanna’s Choice, but I’m not sure what the color is called. It looks like linen…a very muted tweed, sort of. I’ll have to look at the label and get back to you.
2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Dang, he’s cute.
Jimmie Johnson's five consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup championships from 2006-2010 are a feat accomplished by no other driver. Nobody here cares except me, but I had to mention it!
