So this summer I decided to stash bust, since I was moving cross country and had about a million things of Red Heart. I also decided I wanted to upgrade my stash in the hopes that more expensive/nicer yarn would spur me to actually FINISH a project.....I'll let you know how that goes. So here are a bunch of afghans I made this summer and fall. My boyfriend says I'm no longer allowed to make more unless they are to give away. I just get so proud of them because they are literally the FIRST and ONLY crochet projects I have finished, despite years of crocheting.
My first blanket, the 5 point star in Simply Soft Brites:
12-point star using Red Heart leftovers:
I used a G hook to make it tight, which means it took forever and never really got too big-it is big enough for a lap blanket, though. I still want to make this one bigger, if I end up with more big chunks of bright scrap yarn. My 10 pound pup is in for reference (and cuteness factor).
This was a blanket I made for my boyfriend for his birthday. Its just all hdc stripes in green, white and black on a J-hook. It went super fast, only took maybe 2 weeks working off and on.
I made this one for me, just for fun. Its the granny rectangle in teal, fuscia and varigated. This one was also pretty quick, but I could never seem to get the edges to stop rolling. It also came out more of a distorted rectangle, with either short end being bit wider than the middle. Plenty of people had this problem on the CAL for this one, so I just decided I didn't really care too much.
Close-up of color changes:
Finally, a scrap ripple! This one has been in progress for over a year now. I work on it a little here and there whenever I get some more scraps. i've got a bit of every color/texture in there, but its all acrylic and mostly RedHeart. I'd like to make it at least as long as wide, then I think I'll donate it.
I also have an awesome log-cabin one that I finished, but it's for a gift so I can't show it yet!
Thanks for looking!
