Move Completed, back to making more stuff!
In the midst of my move I was able to make a few new hats, and I am still working on the afghan for my bedroom that is Black, White and Red homespun yarn. I decided that my house was going to be decked out in those colors and have been madly trying to create and find stuff to coordinate. I have made afghans and blankets before, mostly for babies, but this is my first full sized afghan. It's going to be amazing when it's done but it's taking a long time and a lot of yarn. I guess it's my fault for having a California King Sized bed. I noticed that when making a large blanket or afghan, you can't guess on how much yarn you need. I tried and I am finding that I am short by more than half of what I really needed. I never thought that it would take 20+ skeins of that homespun stuff to make a blanket big enough for my bed but it's turning out to be that much. I think I'm on skein number 7 or 8 and I'm only about 1/4 of the way finished. It's going to be spectacular when it's actually done. I am making it a zigzag pattern which I have never tried before and it's turning out really REALLY good. I am also in the middle of making a table runner in my signature stripes pattern of Black White and Red for my coffee table. Stay tuned for pictures of them when I get them done. The table runner should be done later on today! I am so excited to be in my own home again that I can hardly contain myself. I have already noticed that my creative juices are flowing in overtime since the move because I have so much inspiration for new ideas! I love my life!!!!!!!!
