Not Much Going On



I haven’t been doing a lot lately in the way of crochet. This is basically the only thing I have accomplished since I last posted.  And it’s full of mistakes. 4 at least. 

I made this in excel. I have some modifying to do to the original chart. Starting from the bottom up it didn’t become obvious that I had made some mistakes until the top of Girl’s was done. If you have ever crocheted double stranded you’ll know that frogging isn’t easy. So I just kept on going.

Cotton yarn was used to make this. 4 balls of black (2 were partial balls, 1 full ball and part of a full ball). The ecru, pink and orange were from full balls and the purple and red were partial balls. It is 56 stitches, 85 rows plus the border. The ending size is 16 1/4 x 23 1/2 inches using an H hook. It obviously needs to be blocked. The bottom is a lot looser than the top is.

I wanted to do it in red, white & blue but decided to use the colors I had. It kind of stands out don’t you think? :o)

Today is a dreary day in SE GA. We are supposed to get some of the rain that TX and parts west and north of here have been getting.

Hope your week will be full and productive! Happy hooking!

Hi Kit-Kat! We never did get any of that rain. They kept saying we would, but we never did. Guess it was all south of us and that's what you're going to get. Great job on the little afghan. (That's what it is, right? Or maybe just a banner?) Anyways, it's NOT easy to crochet with two strands, especially cotton. I don't see any mistakes either. Have a good week! Bye!

We finally got the rain, too. Beat the hell out of my mustards and one tater plant. I reckon they'll stand back up. Good to read you. How's them cats?
