Hi everyone! I posted in the July thread since I did most of my crocheting that month, but I did post here, so I thought I'd put my finished product in this thread as well...

Here is the final product!!!

Hello everyone!!

I was out of town last week and haven't updated in ages... I'll post the squares I did up to yesterday. I am going to continue crocheting five more squares so I can do a 6x6 square afghan. I'll start sewing them together on Aug6.

photo heavy...
7/22 -
Red and silver - red for the anger I felt when I had to call the state and was hung up on! Silver because there was some good from the day. LOL

7/23 -
This one is for a girl that I met in class. She wore a beautiful dress with these colors, so I did a square with the same coloring. Smiley

7/24 -
This one symbolizes my haircut. LOL. Brown hair with some blondish from the sun. Cheesy

7/25 -
Getaway day! Did a quick, thick white chunky yarn to get done quickly.

7/26 -
Greens because of all the trees near our room in Maine!

7/27 -
Beach day!

7/28 -
Alpaca yarn. I loved this yarn. It was soft, made from a cute little alpaca named Naomi. I loved it until the hank got all tangled and I had no way to untangle it. This square is really small. Not sure how I'm going to fit it in with the rest of the squares...

7/29 -
Another beach day - this is Red Heart ocean yarn

7/30 -
Black and white for our day spent on the road...

7/31 -
White, orange and pink - my Dunkin Donuts square!

When I have my other five squares done and I start sewing, I'll definitely post a picture of the final product. Thanks for sharing my square a day journal afghan with me! Smiley See you all in August!!! Smiley

Been in class this week... So I'm still crocheting, but haven't been posting everyday. Here are my latest squares!!

Monday - yellow/white - the class I'm taking has a sunshine logo, so I tried to recreate that in a granny square!

Tuesday - pastels - this was a lazy square. I got home late from class, went to an appointment, had to make dinner when I got home, then had to go to the gym. By the time I got home, I didn't want to crochet! So I just found a variegated yarn and ran with it. Smiley

Wednesday - purple/green - This one is in honor of this really nice lady, Marilyn, that I have met in my class. She has been super friendly and nice, very perceptive of my anxiety around being in a class with no one I know and being the only person in a different situation than the rest of the group. She wore a pretty purple/green outfit today, so I went with those colors for today.

CraftADDchick - I have friends out in Worcester. How did you handle the tornado warning?! Hope all was OK!! Do you have any good little crafty stores that you visit near you? Next time I visit my friends, I'd love to hit up a local craft store.

Kittymom13 & craftADDchick - Thank you so much for the encouragement on my squares, afghan! Smiley I can't wait to see how it all ends up. I really don't have a plan, I'm going with each day as it comes. But I think it'll all come together in the end!! What part of Mass are you in, craftADDchick? My husband and I are just north of Boston.

Here is today's square... It too has a story (of course!) It's bright yellow because Feng Shui peeps believe that exposure to too much intense yellow makes you anxious and I have had a very anxious day today. I have to take a class this week and I'm very anxious about it. I signed up for it when I had a job and I'm not even sure I'm sticking with the profession. But I can't get out of the class. Anyway, I decided to make my square anxious to match my feelings today...

We did have watermelon for lunch, too! Smiley

Here is today's square... I chose black & orange because my sweetie and I wandered around Salem, Mass. this afternoon.

Oooh! I think I'd love a whole blanket made with that Polarspun! Was it hard to work with?

YES!!! I've had that stuff for years - white, hot pink, hot pink/pink variegated - and I've never been able to use it because I can't work with it! But I figured I'd be good with a granny square. It was OK, but I don't think I'd be able to do more than a granny square or some other open work pattern.

Haven't made today's square yet, but I spent the day with a good friend and let her pick the colors. One Lilly Pulitzer square coming up later tonight! Cheesy

.... time passing, time passing... LOL

Here is today's square!! This is my pretty Julie Square in honor of my good friend. Smiley

Here are yesterday's and today's squares...

7/14 - I went with Lion Brand Polarspun because I wanted to experiment with textures on this granny afghan. I thought it would be fun to have a really soft, squishy square in there!

7/15 - This is a Jo-Anns' Sensations yarn I found in my stash. I'm sure it's probably discontinued by now. I kept saying I would use it for a cute belt or scarf & never did it. Since I know I'll be using my afghan, I figured now is the time to use all that "special" yarn!!

Good morning, everyone! Here is last night's square... Done in Patons Melody (orange) - which was hard to work with - and Lion Brand Homespun Baby (creamsicle) - which was easy to work with compared to Melody. Smiley I used the creamsicle yarn in honor of my first Dunkin Donuts' orange-vanilla coolata (kiddy size of course LOL) because it tasted just like a creamsicle!

10  Wristbands in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by CrochetAngel on: July 12, 2010 05:22:28 PM
During the NHL season, I made a variation on the wristband pattern in honor of my beloved Boston Bruins...

Here it is, before it was sewn up:

And here I am modeling it:

I wore it to the playoffs and the boys won one game, but lost the other. In good news, it kept me unbelievably warm. I was surprised, but by covering the wrist with yarn, it really helped with body temperature! I'm probably going to make another for my other wrist before next season. Cheesy
