Crochet: Afghan Kit

posted in: Crochet | 13

Last winter I purchased an afghan kit from Mary Maxim, worked on it for awhile, then realized there was a mistake so unravelled most of it, and started to redo it.

Then the weather started getting warmer and it got put to one side for smaller projects. I worry when purchasing kits that there won’t be enough yarn, and now it has been so long since ordering it I’m really hoping there will be enough.

With the weather has starting to cool down I’ve got the bag out of the craft closet and started working on it again.

As it was put to one side for ages, I had to reread the pattern and check to see where I had left off.

Slowly but surely with my 5 mm hook, my homemade row counter, and yarn from the kit I’ll be working on this afghan for the next little while. But I have a feeling that when other projects come along this one will be put to one side again till they are completed.

A bit more progress was made on page 7, the doodling stitch page, in my stitch book and the stack of dishcloths increased to 7.

I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.

      I’m slowly working at it, but having a hard time getting back to the pattern in one part, the other part is boring as it is the same stitch over and over. I will persevere.

    I do lime your Afghan lovely soft colours. I can’t crochet myself, but certainly admire those who can.

      I can’t seem to muster up enthusiasm for this project, perhaps because I already have so many afghans and everyone I know has received one as a gift, or perhaps because I left it so long to finish.

    I have a sweater that I have to return to. It has been put aside for way too long, but I have to figure out the armholes as my gauge is off vertically. This afghan is very pretty. I hope you finish it.

    So many wonderful stitching projects going on! You are doing a great job with the afghan! Sure hope the kit was generous in giving you more than enough yarn.

      I hope there is enough yarn too Kathie, if not, think I’ll be able to find something suitable for the border.

    Such a pretty pattern! I have a knitting project I started and made several mistakes on. Now I have to rip it out and start again….sigh.
