Even though I'm not Granny-A-Day-ing it, this CAL has been the kick in the pants I needed to tackle that afghan reconstruction.

I am super excited to see how your project turns out too!

I am behind.  This week has been stressful for me.  I was waiting for a call about a job.  I got the job on friday.  but now I will be working 72 hours a week so I won't have much time to crochet.

I checked my netbook and it does have a slot for the camera card, so I can upload some "in progress" shots in a little bit Wink

I've got pictures! Finally! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner... The pictures are a bit dark, but they're all I have.

So, here's the "afghan" in all of it's glory before...



Lovely, no? No... definitely, no...


And here is where it is falling apart...



And here is the beginning of the pile of squares that have been cut out, alongside the pile of the black yarn that I cut them out of...



There is black fuzz everywhere!

I'll post a few more progress pictures (glued ends, added rounds) later...

Oooo, lovely craftADDchick! Are you going to redo them in black, it looked really nice!

This week's squares:



I finished Inga's bag which took up the majority of the week. Excuse the crappy shot, once I "block" it and sew the straps on I'll have better pictures.

I also finished squares for the 2010 Block-a-month CAL, the Easter square on the top right, and the other two on the bottom from the 2010 200 Blocks CAL from Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks, Daisy Chain and Briar Rose.

The bag looks great, OnePinkHippo! And, your other blocks came out nice, too! That blanket's going to look awesome when it's done.

I'm going to re-join the blocks with white. I thought it'd cut down on some of the contrast between the blocks (i.e. maybe the blocks won't clash with each other quite so much Wink ). I have no idea what I'll do with it once it's finished, but I'll deal with that when it's done Grin

OnePinkHippo absolutely beautiful colors! Makes me feel all spring timey.

craftaddchick- does it make you feel sad to take it apart? I know I always feel sad to pull my projects apart!

Ariethine and Sera unravled- everyone has been having so much fun that I'm sure we'll do this again, so you guys will have a chance to play along when things are less stressful!

Anyways, here are my 17, oh no!! squares! had to catch up from most of this past week this evening, then took them down to my craft area to take pictures, and realized I was 1 square short! Here I was all excited to be caught up.. lol


Oh! Whats that? Came back upstairs and #18 was laying on the couch!!

Here is my progress. Sorry-it is a bit blurry. I was hoping to do 2 squares a day, to make a reasonable size by the end of April, but I am still a bit behind!

Love those colours, One Pink Hippo!
