Since I haven’t updated this blog in forever with any of my crafting updates I’m going to do one big image heavy post 😛 I’ve been doing A TON of crochet since mid last year (mostly CALs) and I didn’t really feel like updating my site at all. I need to work on that. So here goes!
I finished my Daisy Afghan this week!!! I’m so proud of it hehe. I weaved in all the ends and then I started sewing them together on Friday, and I weaved in the ends after each piece was sewn. I actually had a system going lol. I finished it Friday night and I love it. I am debating putting a border on it, using the grey first with a round of dc then 3 rounds of sc in blue, pink & grey. Not too sure yet, everyone I ask seems to be 50/50 on it. I have enough yarn to do it so it’s not an issue on that. I actually have 2 balls of each colour left over. I’m going to make a swap square with them too.
I have Clue 9 finished for the Mystery CAL and I plan on taking it with me to finish (hopefully) at my conference in Vancouver this weekend. I don’t know if I’ll have enough of the yarn colours it needs but we’ll see. I need to get all that sorted out tomorrow when I’m packing. I might just leave it at home and bring yarn for swap squares or take my sisters blanket along with me.
I’ve been super busy this week working on my Daisy Afghan, I’m almost done the hexagons 🙂 Only 4 more left to put the border on and then weave in the ends. I’m hoping to get the 4 done today and start weaving in too. Then I have to make the 6 squares that go between the rows. Those shouldn’t take me too long but you never know. I’m really happy with my progress so far though. Here are all the pictures of my progress that I’ve done so far:
I did work a little bit on my Mystery CAL this week but I only got 1 1/2 rounds of the border clue done for last weeks clue. This weeks clue is 4 rounds. The 2nd round of last weeks clue uses sooooo much yarn. It’s a 5dc cluster and then dc beside it repeat. Kinda boring! I’ll get it done though, I also need to weave in the ends for the joins and the borders before I post a good picture of it.
Wow I’m actually posting another one of these this month! I did another swap square, 2 baby hats and started another afghan this week. Guess what?! The afghan is for me!! I finally started one for myself…I haven’t made one for me in a year. The baby hats I did for a friend who just had a great grand-daughter…but turns out the hats are too small 🙁 I followed the pattern to the T and they are still too small. *sigh* oh well. They were cute anyways.
Aren’t the little hats adorable?! Anyways, there is the first hexagon for my afghan done. I wanted to see how the colours I picked went together so I did one entirely and now I’m doing the rest in stages, like an assembly line. When I ordered the yarn the pink looked waaaaaay more purple in the picture but I think it looks alright. I’m hoping to work more on this over the Easter long weekend but we shall see. I have so many projects I want to work on this weekend so who knows what I’ll actually get done?
