At the beginning of 2012 I set a goal to start a twin-size afghan for Lady Hops-a-lot and to finish it by the end of the year.
I did it! I finished it a few days before Christmas. The blocks are made in petal stitch that I got from my Interweave Harmony Guide stitch dictionary. There are many different sizes of blocks turned in differing directions and sewn together. It gives it a kind of random appearance, but it was too planned to be truly random.
I made it in Berroco Comfort, a nylon/acrylic blend that can be machine washed and dried. It is snugly and soft. I loved working with it. My only problem with the yarn is that the ends are not staying woven in very well. Not exactly sure how I will remedy that situation. Maybe with a little fabric glue?
She chose the colors: Buttercup #9712, Grape Jelly #9739, and Primary Blue #9736. This pattern is not published. Maybe it never will be, maybe it will…I don’t know.
Did any of my readers accomplish a big crochet goal this year? What was it?
Happy New Year and Happy Stitching!
