I spent my weekend making these cute motifs. I LOVE this book. It's amazing! Mine are comming out a bit large but I am useing an I hook and cotton yarn. No idea what to do with them as of yet, I just want to make more! It's very addicting and it's got that instant gratification thing too. This is the first crochet book I've ever bought and I think I will be adding to the collection. I was afraid I wasn't going to be skilled enough to follow the patterns in books, but I'm pleased with the result. I plan to just hook away! Have a great weekend.

Blanket Mess!

So I love afghans. I LOVE them. I have started countless afghans, but I NEVER finish them. I always frog frog frog. I get bored with them, but I'm always thrilled with the idea of finishing one. I guess I need that instant gratification. =-[

Well I got three going right now that are actually kind of promising.

1. Black and Red made from random squares (for the wonderful boyfriend)

2. A random (and I mean random) granny. Any colors you can think of it's in it!

3. Baby afghan, because we are still trying and I figured if I focus on the positive it will happen
useing carron one pounders for this two of them then the plan is to put it away in my hope chest until the day comes that I do get pregnant then put either a pink or blue border to it.

This is part of the boyfriend's blanket I only have one row done... compared to mine it's kinda sad. lol but I just bought a new book on motifs and there's a squares section so I'm going to test them all and I figured I'll just do them all in red and black.

Mine is the easy one to work on. Maybe it's just because it's mine. I'm not sure I think it's the colors and the randomness of the blanket that makes me want to work on it more. But all of these have gotten further than any other afghan I have ever attempted to make. So to me they are all promising!
