These three rounds have been much slower and quite a bit more tricky than the previous rounds. Margareta from “At Margareta’s Haus” challenged me to get through round 10 this week. And let me tell you what, it has been an adventure in time management to be sure!
The textures of this afghan are so impressive. They are really stretching my crochet skills. I LOVE it!! It is amazing to me that Helen from crystals and crochet could even figure out how to design this work of art! It is beautiful and I am so grateful for her willingness to share her knowledge and talent with the rest of us:)
I took some time to weave in the ends. I know that some people like to crochet in their ends as they go, but I prefer to take my large needle, sit down and really weave them in. I feel that it is the most secure that way. I really don’t mind the added step. I just spend a little bit of time enjoying the back side of my project:).
I always leave about 8″ of yarn when I finish with a color while crocheting. This leaves plenty of yarn to thread in my needle and sew with. I thread and then weave the yarn into the matching color one way and then back on itself the other way. I do this at least two times maybe three.
I am going on a small road trip next week to see my son and daughter in law up in Idaho for a few days. I am sure I will be doing a bit of crochet along the way. What’s a road trip without sewing, right?
I’m looking forward to posting about some of the delicious peaches I plan to buy on our way home. SWEET!!
