Sunshine & update on Crochet Round Afghan

 Hi Everyone!

Blue sky, blustery and temperatures in the 50's. I'll not be headed out to the garden just yet. 

Not by a long shot. Although in my little wee garden I did see some green coming up out of the soil...the Garlic planted in October...Love it!  Seedlings are doing well.

I've been busy moving my hook, and still have a few things going on an in progress. 

The afghan Harvest Fields  is coming along after a rocky start. I'm about 1/2 way through now. I don't think it will be as large as the finished pattern, because I used a smaller hook (by choice) for the yarn I have, using a very large K hook, looked sloppy and the stitches were not well defined and neat. How ever it finishes up it will be lovely on the back of the sofa. 

Here is the updated photo as of this morning....




I'm still in designing mode for the garment I am working on. I worked up an entire piece. The yarn is not correct, it was heavy and bulky, I was going for something light and airy. So I have some yarn ordered DK 3 weight, which is designed for the hook I want to use, and it "should" work out just right. 

I don't have the pattern written in it's entirety. 

That's it for now....hope you are all well, and working your creativity in your own special way...

busy hands....are happy hands.

  1. Yes, the round afghan is looking so pretty! I am continuing to work on my latest chart. I have had a lot of frogging going on. I shouldn't try to stitch at evening time but that's when I can. But it means mistakes!

  2. Uh oh, just delete this if needed. I couldn't tell if I finished my comment or not! Just saying how pretty the afghan is, and how I have been working on a new chart I designed. And frogging a lot because I have to work in the evening and I can't see very well in the evening.

    1. If it were not for all the fogging, I would probably be done, still going round and round. Charting and needle work even smaller, you must have good eyes.

    1. if it were not so pretty, I don't think I would have finished it, round and round 46 rows...but yes it is a pretty piece.

  4. Our weather is very much like yours including the blustery wind. I though I'd have to turn back on my walk this morning but then I found a wooded path where I was more sheltered.
    Great that your seedlings are coming along nicely. And your garlic is up.

    1. I don't pop in everyday sometimes GM, I missed a few days this week, thank you for leaving comments. Hard to walk when the wind is sharp, feels like it cuts right through you dosn'nt it?
