Now, onward to the yarny goodness! ^.^
Monday, I showed a few progress shots of my latest blanket design and promised to have the whole thing done by today. I'm very proud of myself because I finished it yesterday! (color me crochet addict, lol) Hurrah! So yeah, all that's left to do is to run it through the wash to soften the yarn up. I do this because I use a lot of red heart super saver acrylic yarn and sometimes it's not the softest fiber out there. But after a trip through the washer, it's good to go. So there's a little tip for anyone wanting to use acrylic but worrying about the feel.
|Tuesday: All squares finished and laid out|
|Wednesday: Joining squares at Lamar's game|
This is the blanket all joined together. (So stinkin proud of myself for getting all the blocks joined at the bball game!) It came out really nicely. And I'm really feeling the nonsensical mix of colors. :)
Later Wednesday night, I got down to the business of edging the whole thing while watching American Idol...
Let me take a moment to jump on my soap box and say Candice Glover singing Lovesong killed me! Gah! She got all up in that song and made her bed! I got chills.
Okay, back to blanket edging, lol. I did go with my first inclination of 3 granny stripe rows and one scallop and here's a progress of the edging.
|Wednesday/Thursday: This was totally 2am, lol|
|This is me after I finished all the edging... suh-lee-py|
|Thursday morning: TA-DA!!!|
