At the end of last year, My Mom told me about a challenge that was going around, where you make a crocheted afghan in a year, but crocheting a square everyday, or a square every week.
well, my squares are so small, (about the size of my hand,) that I figured that by the end of the year, I would have an enormous afghan!
So I thought about it, and decided that I would make a square everyday for six months, and make and afghan, and then start a knew square, and make a second one in the remaining six months!
So by the end of this year (hopefully) I will have one afghan finish, and a bunch of squares for a second one!
Hopefully I feel dedicated to this project and I keep it going..... I am already behind quite a few squares, so I need to take a day and crochet like ten of them....
And part of My problem is I have really be in the mood to read, like I am devouring books!
I went to the Library with my Dad and siblings last night, and I got a whole arm full of books, when I know I should be crocheting with my spare time, I plan on curling up in a warm blanket, and reading for hours on end. ah! Why can't I read and crochet at the same time??? I think if I ever was given the chance to choose at what I would like to multitask at, I would say reading and crocheting, since that is the biggest thing that I struggle with! Of course if I sat long enough thinking about it, I would probably be able to think of all sorts of things..... Well, back to business!
Underneath are pictures of the different color combinations I am working with.
The Blue that I am using is my favorite color yarn for the project! Its Red heart Aruba sea!
Here are links to all of the yarn colors I am using.
These squares are so simple! you basically crochet a circle, and then you work around the edges with the contrasting color.
Okay, so here are a few things that I thought I would show you guys!
This owl tin, is where I keep my buttons! Isn't it cute?!
So my Dad went to the store, and bought a bag of all different sized and colored buttons.
He also had to buy me some new hooks since when we moved I lost all but one of mine! and for Months I have been using my sisters which doesn't make her happy..... So my Dad got me two different sets!
|The one with the smaller hooks came with a pair of scissors that collapse!|
I tried to take a picture of the Hook sizes, not sure how clear is is, so it came with:
L-11 = 8.0mm
Well Bye for now!
