11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first afghan on: April 26, 2013 07:51:13 AM
I wanted to do an afghan for so long and when I started searching for a pattern, this one from Lion Brand caught my eye: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kew-gardens-afghan

Anyway, this is what I ended up with:


It's made out of scraps of yarn and some really old yarn I had (well, the yellow yarn close to the border actually belonged to my mom, but since she wasn't using it - not for lack of trying, let me tell you - I decided to add it to my project). I hate that it's starting to curl, though I'm thinking it's because I worked about 52 rows. Way more than what the pattern says. Anyway, I wanted to make it big enough to fit my bed, but I decided against it when I saw how curly it got.

BUT it is comfy and warm. I didn't block it though, since I don't have a board this big and I didn't want to iron it either... I figure it will set once I wash it, though I'm not sure if I should wash it in the washing machine  Huh

I finally managed to complete a knitting project. I found the pattern on Ravelry. It's a free pattern from Lion Brand. I love how it turned out. Hope you like it too.  Smiley

It's gorgeous! I love it and love the colors.

I finished these two scarves a while ago but I forgot to take pictures. I really like how they turned out.





This first one wasn't as hard to do as I thought it would be. What I didn't expect was the number of skeins I used for it. It's short, but it took 6 skeins, so I decided to leave it this way.







The second one I found on Ravelry. It's a free pattern. At first I wanted to do only the wristlets, but I thought it would be cool to have a matching set with a scarf. Now if only I could find a similar pattern for a hat (I'm bad at improvising) I'd be very happy Cheesy

Hope you liked them. I bought the yarns for both projects at the Euro shop, each skein for one euro.

As you can see, I did it right this time...

Yay!



Now, should I wash it or something? It seems slightly stiff and twisty, so would washing it soften it up a bit?

Edit: I made it link to normal sized pictures instead of thumbnails like it was before. Smiley

I love the first one!

I for one washed and ironed both my scarves and are now very soft. I let them dry and covered them with a wet cloth and ironed them (actually mom gave me that idea *blush*) plus, I think ironing gave them a "finished" look.

Czanna, Great color!

blue.starlight, I agree, the color is lovely! I never would have thought to work it in 2 thinner colors of yarn. That opens up a whole world of possibilities!

Thanks! I didn't think of it either. As new as I am at crocheting, I didn't even thought it would matter if the thread was thin or not.

It sure does...and also, I was thinking of adding beads but the yarn needs to be thin...hmmm ideas abound!

(does anyone else want her ironing board cover as well?... Cheesy)


Now I didn't think about bead, but it sure sounds fun. Might try it, after I finish the project I'm on.

Thanks! on the wrap around the ball it said it was baby thread, not that it had any real meaning. Figured it was some thread used for baby clothes Tongue

Hi everyone! I found this picture on the internet a while back from an 80's edition of Crochet World. I absolutely love it and I want to do it,  but I can't determine the pattern, since I'm very new to crocheting.



Thanks in advance!

Update: Never mind, I finally found the issue at a local flea market and I found the pattern. Can't wait to start on it!

Xenolai, I love the color you chose for your scarf!

I finished the scarf for my mom a week ago, but I didn't have time to post the pictures until now. Here it is:

 

It was supposed to be two shades of blue, one a lighter color on one half and on the other half a darker shade, but I discovered that the thread I was using was too thin, so I used both threads at the same time. I think it actually looks better than the first one Smiley
