It’s been a while since I posted anything about my adventures in crafting. It’s not like I haven’t been doing things…. I just haven’t written about them.
Two years ago, I decided to make an afghan. LB said she wanted a rainbow one.. and I was happy to oblige. My fall back craft when knitting is getting on my nerves, is to crochet. My great-grandmother taught me when I was a very young girl.
So I picked out a pattern from Mosaic Magic : Afghans Made Easyand ended up with “Colorful Crayon”.
It’s a very interesting pattern and makes for a heavy fabric.
And then I put it away.. evidently for almost two years based on my Ravelry Notes.
When LB went off to visit family for a weekend in March, I felt compelled to haul it out again.
And I worked on it pretty diligently. I had actually hoped to finish it before the Supreme Court ruled on Hollingsworth v Perry
But that didn’t happen.
I’m currently working on the blue stripe. Only blue and purple left to go.. then the border. But..
I grow weary of it.. it’s SOOOO MONOTONOUS … and honestly?
It’s too fucking hot out to have a heavy afghan on my lap.
I’ll have it done before winter.. but it’s never ending… and HUGE.
