Bag of Yarn

I've been kicking around the idea of starting an afghan for awhile now. I haven't done any crocheting in years because to be honest I am not organized enough to sit still long enough to finish one. I get a few rows done and then something comes up and I put it away. I couldn't begin to tell you how many times I have stuck away yarn over the years thinking I will get back to it "later". Well, as you can imagine later never arrives so I have ended up odd balls of yarn. I knew this bag was in my storage so I dug it out this morning. I plan on starting a ripple afghan and just mix up the colors. I will try and post photos as it progresses. I figure the worst that can happen is it becomes a blanket for the dog. Wish me luck

I look forward to watching your progress.

I do not nearly have Lady Rose's dedication (insanity?) but I have found that finishing my own small projects has been very satisfying. Even if all it becomes is a gift for your dog I hope you find similar satisfaction

I used to do a lot of knitting. My first try was a full length coat - you can imagine how much it weighed! Good luck with the dog blanket, if that what it turns out to be. x

That's a lovely idea. You'll have such a feeling of accomplishment when you finish - even if it's small! Good luck, and enjoy!

I know what you mean . . . I learned to do hairpinlace crochet when I was 16 and haven't done anything with it for about 20 years. This past year, I joined my church ladies needleworkers group and we make things for charity. I can't tell you how many neckscarves , hats, baby blankets and shawls I have made! I love doing it again.

I look forward to you joining Katney's group for ODD SHOTS Monday.

I'm like you. I haven't finish a one. Now my mother on the hand, she can finish anything.

I know how you feel about putting things away and telling yourself that you'll come back to it "later". It seems like I do that a lot with books. I'll start reading it, something comes up, and I never get back to it.

Since it's still winter, think of crocheting as a winter activity unless if the weather is nice.

I'm knitting at the moment. It was supposed to be a "use up the oddments" exercise to knit part of a bed throw for my eldest daughter. NOW I find I am buying one-off balls of wool which I find irresistable but couldn't possibly afford sufficient of to knit anything bigger than a cushion front. Hmmm - defeats the object a bit! Wish I could crochet - put your stash where you won't miss it when you sit down in the evening - you may reach the end this time.

I love the new background. I am glad things seem to be on the upswing with your mom!
