Oh hush. I can start as many projects as I want!
It was an accident, really.
Remember that magazine I showed you the other day that I said I'd never make anything out of it? Weeeeell, I took another quick flip through it and noticed this graph in the back pages. It grabbed me, and I picked up my yarn and hook and made one...and then I made another one, and another one...then I went to my stash and started digging out more muted yarns...and I kept making them.
Now I'm not a square person. I'm not one to sit and crochet square after square because I usually don't enjoy it. But. I was hopping around all my usual blog haunts, and saw THIS UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL BLANKET! Oh, my. Isn't it gorgeous?
So I'm pretty sure that was in the back of my mind when I started these. Mine won't be as pretty in this worsted weight yarn -- I think dk yarn makes everything prettier because it's smaller yarn and takes a smaller hook. Anyway, this one won't be shabby, and I'm having a good time with the squares. I haven't even thought about what color I'm going to use for joining, but I'm pretty sure I'll be using the join-as-you-go method. I hate any kind of sewing, even just whip-stitching squares together. The last round of each square and joining color can make all the difference in how your blanket looks. I can't wait to see what develops.
During THE STORMS last night, I was nervously crocheting away and watching the weathermen having the time of their lives trying to cover all the deadly tornadoes and hail and storms in the DFW area. We were the lucky ones that didn't get much other than thunder and lightening and gobs of rain. Thank you, Lord. But many others weren't so lucky and need our prayers.
Tornadoes scare the shit out of me!
