1  Blue and grey afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by Catski on: January 28, 2011 03:09:27 PM
I asked for some advice here a few months back as I embarked on making granny squares for an afghan for my partner. It was a wedding present so it had to be super-good and long-lasting: I used a variety of acrylics for this.

Threw myself into this project with great gusto and finally, after making a couple of hundred squares, I thought the end was in sight. I'm sure experienced afghan makers will be snickering right about now. Took another 24 hours or so to assemble and put a border on. He loves it, though, I'm proud of completing an ambitious project and I have Learned From My Mistakes. Next time, bigger hook, thicker yarn, fewer squares and some kind of pattern!

This is a neat idea. I'm currently making eleventy billion squares for a BIG blanket. Fortunately I have finished all the navy ones which are pretty hard on the eyes... unfortunately it now appears that the navy (which was second-hand from a friend) is wool while the other squares are acrylic, so I'm having to add time onto my projecting crafting time to make up the twenty-odd which are no longer useable. Graargh! This is the story so far:

3  Simple scarf with fringe in Crochet: Completed Projects by Catski on: August 10, 2009 04:09:29 PM
So this isn't exactly trail-blazing crochet, but it's the first thing I've ever made! My grandmother, once a knitter, gifted me a whole handful of crochet hooks a couple of weeks ago and finally I made something even and, dare I say it, wearable! I figured out the fringe by myself, ten knots across twenty stitches.
