Maybe something in thread

 Here we are once again,

The design project is off my hook !

 Are you like this when you finish a project?

 Can't wait to get it started, and then you can't wait for it to be done?  There is something just ever so lovely about  starting a new crochet project with all fresh new yarn. 

It's time to do a project with some thread, a smaller hook and lighter material. I've done 2 projects back to back with yarn, the first the Harvest fields afghan in my previous post, and now this garment. I still have to weave and steam it, but I think we shall call it a finished project.

Something small, with instant gratification is what I'm thinking.

Well, lets see, I could make Crochet Bells havn't done that in a while, they are quick, and off the hook in a few minutes, or I could make some more Crochet Easter Eggs. also quick. 

I did pretty good with the yarn expectation, with both projects I had only one skein left, and wasn't caught short. With the afghan I did use a smaller hook. The pattern called for a K size hook. I tend to crochet on the loose side so I took it down a few notches, and used a G.  Doing a swatch with the K left my stitches loose and undefined.   

I don't buy yarn to buy yarn, but  did purchase some new thread at Hobby Lobby while there the other day,  I have more than enough thread for now and won't be needing anymore.

  1. Yes, I know what you mean about starting a project.....eager to start, and anxious to complete it. Your yarn colors are nice and calming. I look forward to seeing your projects when they are finished.

    Have a lovely week.

  4. I hear you Kristina, with the back to back I did first with the afghan, and then the design I am working on in yarn...at the moment I am yarned out. I thought I'd never get that round afghan completed round and round and round but it was worth it.

  7. I laughed when I read you have enough thread... I don’t think I’ll ever use up all the thread in my stash, but that never stops me from buying and dying more!!! I think it’s an addiction! Very interested to see whatever you create!
