I am crocheting a round afghan! I’m not crazy about the solid blue sections. I had hoped that when I finished the rounds of varied color yarn, the blue would look more like it belonged. Once I finished the first rounds of varied color and saw that the blue still wasn’t making me happy, I considered ripping it all out and getting rid of the blue, but that thought passed in about a half a second! My kids like the way it looks, and I promised the afghan to my youngest son, so as long as he likes it, I like it! The pattern I’m using is the Stratford Circle Afghan by Lion Brand. I chose different colors than they specified and I’m using a smaller crochet hook than specified to get the correct gauge. I’m really enjoying making it except that my right thumb joint has gotten really sore, so I’m taking some time off of working on it. Our weather forecast for the next four to five days is rain, rain, and more rain. I hope my thumb is up to getting back to work!
Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!
