As requested, here are more pictures of the “Artsy (Fartsy) Afghans” book. There are only four patterns in it. Here are the other three:
That’s the GOOD.
Now to the BAD & UGLY…
UGH! Look away!
This is the square I made where I was trying to figure out the edging on my own. And I used the ugliest colors imaginable. I have since ripped that edging out. I’ve decided I’m using black and white for the edging instead of black and red.
I spent a few hours sewing squares together and crocheting the edging using the book last night, only to rip it all out before I went to bed in disgust. It’s not working out right. I have no idea what I did wrong, but it was bad, bad, bad. I’ll try again today. (In case you are curious, the first three rounds of the edging are all sc around. Then the last three rows are a combination of FPDCs and SCs. It’s the placement of the “FPDC two rows below” that doesn’t look correct.)
In the meantime, here are three squares I have put together but have not done the edging on.
Bad Lighting/Bad Picture
Another problem: I had the three squares put together with slip stitches as called for in the pattern, but I ripped that out too because crocheting them together with SCs looks much better in my opinion.
So now you know why it’s taking me forever and a day to get this thing going! I’ve spent hours crocheting and frogging. Bleh. It is not fun to crochet when you let it get to you. It’s time to frog and go to bed when that happens, and that’s exactly what I did.
Here’s to starting anew!
I’m not ready yet.
I’m all pissed off again just looking at those pictures.
“Make my day, punk!”
I’ll frog you back to a yarn ball!
