OLE FOR CROCHET
Here's what ' as I've been up to on these bitterly cold, windy, snow-filled days...
I am calling this my "Star Flower" project. I am so into "naming things!! (hah)
I ran out of the Noro yarn for the afghan I had begun (see last posting)--so I took this Red Heart "Monet" yarn which I've had for eons (!) and began to make a granny afghan--
I have always loved this simple yet SO effective pattern. A youtube video from "The Crochet Crowd"
made my learning curve a lot easier than any written directions....yay!!
Here are the other two colorways I chose besides that cream above :
It is a "bubblegum-pink-like" color--the same as what I used to put the final paths on my hexagon
quilt which hangs in my living room. I hope to add this to my decor --if that is what I can call my eclectic mix in there!!.
I visited my Local Yarn Shop (LYS) last Thursday morning in hopes of joining a knit/crochet group that meets there to stitch and chat--but no one showed up--geeze lou-eeze--maybe because it was
FREEZING in there--my hands finally sent me flying home to my warm sofa. Perhaps when temps moderate, it'll be warm enough so that my finicky-arthritis hands don't seize up!
that's all the news from here this week...hugs to you all...
