I know, I know, it’s Wednesday & I usually do a WIP Wednesday post. But that would involve actually having some progress to share… LOL I actually have managed to finish Jon’s worsted weight socks (awaiting photos) & I’ve got some more progress on his other pair of socks.. but other than that, the only things I’ve worked on is designs, designs, designs… you know, stuff I can’t share. I can’t even share a “what am I reading” post because I just finished 2 books & I’m actually not really reading anything. gasp.
I can tell you, I am working on two designs to submit to Crochetvolution, and I’ve been working on 2 new 12″ square designs for two different CALs for April 1st, part of my ongoing square CAL series. They’ve been a bit, well, error prone & they’ve gone through about 12 levels of editing… so far… I somehow suspect there’s still more. I’ve been slowly crocheting away on my current afghan design sample as well, but that’s really slow going. I’m making the 60″ across size, and I spent about 6 hours crocheting on it over the weekend… only to realize I had made a mistake the very first row I crocheted that morning… as in, I completely skipped one of the pattern rows. Entirely. So… I had to frog back 6 hours worth of work. The afghan is now pouting in the middle of my living room floor where I kick it every time I walk by.
So today’s post is my latest charity finds. Or, technically, Jon’s charity finds. First he found this…
It’s all acrylic, except for one skein that’s a 50-50 wool-nylon blend – the small dark blue skein you see on the top.
He mentioned that there was also some “lace” yarn that he saw but didn’t know if I would be interested or not. He took a photo of the yarn (good man) but the photo was pretty dark but I told him to go ahead & grab it if it was still there next time he went. The next day he came home with this
It’s some kind of cotton blend yarn, textured & a little fuzzy, and is definitely NOT lace yarn. I have 3 different colors – a white, a yellow, and a white with pale green specks in it. NO idea what I’m doing with it, but it’s nifty yarn all the same
