I have officially finished all of my little gifts to give to my colleagues! In good time too. I have about 15 work days left until I leave my long term position.
So now, I am thinking about a new project. I have all of the yarn to start a 5 1/2 Hour Afghan, but I just haven't gotten off my butt to start that. However.... over the weekend I got my new hooks, which I LOVE! And when I was at the craft store, I found the cutest verigated yarn. It was in one of those "side" racks and it was only 1.75oz for $1. Horrid price if I was buying a lot of it.... but it was too cute to pass up! Pink, orange, grey and beige! A very cute combination. I didn't know what I'd make out of it, but I picked up one little skein. In the store I tried to match up the colors, but nothing worked. Oh well.
When I got my new hooks, I needed to make something, so I decided on just a granny square. I figured I could make a couple granny squares and maybe start an exchange on here. But after I made 2 squares, I wanted to make something more out of it. The teeny tiny skein only made 2 full squares. I then made 3 other squares with just one round of the verigated, and the rest a beige/tan color.
It then dawned on me that I have 2 skeins of an orange that is similar to the verigated, and one part skein of a pink that is similar. I'm not sure how well it'll go together, but it could be worth a try!
I then got an email, that someone commented on my grannies and ripples afghan post. It got my mind going, and thinking about that afghan and how fun it was to make. So...... what if I did another granny and ripples afghan?
They're very loud colors, but i'm sure as i'm working through it I can figure something out. I just need to go back to the store and pick up some more of those little skeins of the verigated. One little skein made 5 squares, which will be one row of squares. I figure 5 or 6 skeins is all I would need. Then fill the rest with the orange, pink and beige!
Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see how it turns out! Here we go again!
