So, I realize that I have been woefully abscent from the blogosphere, but I do have a good excuse. I've been furiously trying to finish two afghans. I did finish one, the other is a scrap afghan that I have been working on between projects for about 2 years. I was hoping to finish it this weekend and post pictures of my new creations, but alas, the border is more time consuming than I anticipated. Which really means that it's boring me to death and I have to keep putting it down because it causes me to fall asleep. That's what happens when you get old. Anyway, as soon as I finish I promise pictures.
Then in a fit of insanity I signed up to do what they call a CAL or Chrochet-Along. I'm trying to venture outside my comfort zone, although why I'm doing this I have no idea. You follow along on a blog, everyone crochets the same thing, and you share your progress. The pattern is the picture above. I have never done shapes that have anything but four sides since the time I tried to do a triangle afghan and it came out all sorts of misshapen. But I figure I have time now to concentrate on it and I'm in need of a baby afghan so I thought this might be the perfect time to try something new. Wish me luck...I'm going to need it.
