Archive 2004: Update on Projects

(Note: This post was written by Laurel Regan and originally published in a separate blog called “Fibre Yarns”, which was later merged with Alphabet Salad.)

Adapted from LiveJournal entry originally posted November 8th, 2004:

Still working on Market Bag #2 – nearly finished the mesh portion. It’s looking a lot better than MB #1… yay me! 🙂 …though the bottom portion really isn’t perfect. I’m baffled as to what I did wrong, but at least it’s a big improvement from before. Anyway, I’m trying not to rush through this one quite so much… trying to take my time, pace myself, and fully enjoy the whole process.

I’ve made a decision as to what I’m going to do with all the bits of yarn left over from my various projects. I’m going to make Granny’s Daughters with my
acrylic yarn scraps, and Yo-Yos with my cotton yarn scraps, and eventually piece them together into two wild and crazy afghans. (I can only assume it would be a bad thing to mix cotton and acrylic in one afghan if I don’t want bizarre shrinkage taking place *grin* so the cotton and acrylic pieces will very much be kept separate!).

Here are some pics of the ones I’ve made so far:

Granny’s Daughters




(Please excuse all the loose ends… weaving them in comes later!)

So, progress is being made… but above all else, I’m still enjoying crocheting so much. Very glad I picked up on this craft!
