blanketed in yarn
I love the idea of this swap. The individual pieces you send are quick, instant-gratification projects that will end up being something much greater in the end. What a feeling of community!
I’m going to post some progress photos along the way, both of ones I send and the ones I receive. It should be done around my birthday next year, continuing the tradition of finishing something big every Spring. If by chance the resulting afghan isn’t to my taste, I’ll just donate it to charity. It’s a win-win all around.
Oh!! and I finally finished my crocheted throw the other day:
I'm so happy with the edging I almost can't stand it. The blanket was all finished but the edging for about a month. I tried on a few different ones but soon ripped them out. None were right. I finally unloaded my new [to me, courtesy of my aunt] Greystone's Creative Hands series, circa 1966 - 1975 & flipped through it. Amidst the plethora of info about knitting, macrame, embroidery and dressmaking was a section on crochet edgings. The 'leaf edging' turned out to be the perfect one.
