Picking Up An Old Friend Again...


Remember me?


I ran low on yarn while working on this project (Rainbow Scrap Afghan) and had put it aside.



But yesterday I gathered it together to work on it again. 

 This is the back of the throw. 

 It has a beautiful texture all on its own.



I love the feel of this throw - it's so soft and surprisingly light-weight...so far.

It's worked in single crochet (front and back loops) with long treble crochet stitches thrown in for the pop effect.  

You can find this pattern in an Annie's Attic Crochet booklet (#879548) entitled, "scrap crochet" - the designer is Glenda Winkeman.  

I'm out of some of the green and blue shades and low on others so I will have to decide to go forward with the colors I have remaining or try to find the yarn. 

 Finding the yarn may prove to be difficult since I didn't write down or save the yarn labels. 

 Duh...will I never learn.

Wish me luck!

  2. This stitch looks a little complicated to me. But I do love the pattern, and I remember Annie's Attic! (I actually watched the RNC last night, I was embarrassed for Clint Eastwood) xo

    PS I'm on the other side of the pond, but why was Clint Eastwood addressing an empty chair? I though only us Brits were eccentric lol

  7. I like what you've done so far... you'll just have to carry it with you to the store and hopefully match up what you have...
    Can't wait to see it finished.
