    Question Where is everyone on their projects?

    I am about 1/3 done with my shell stitch afghan. I put it down for a couple of weeks but the last 2 nights I have been working on it.

    Anyone else?

    This afghan is going to be heavy!!!! So far I have used 32 ounces of yarn and expect to use at least 48-60 more ounces to finish it!

    I'm making it bigger than the normal pattern.

    I'm still plugging away on my zig zag blanket for Zachary. I only do about two rows whenever I can squeeze it in, so it's going to be awhile.

    I'm still at about 1/4 mark. Roughly about 10 skeins into it.

    Diana, I would LOVE to see a pic of your afghan. My neighbor is trying to teach me how to do one. I have done 3 rows so far. I see LOTS of mistakes. I could take them all out, but then I would be starting at the beginning again . I plan to keep this and learn from it.

    One question - how do you turn the corner? go from one row to another? my friend showed me but I couldn't remember. I sort of just "winged it" with what I thought she said to do. I am sure its not right, but I wanted to keep going.

    it seems like if i hold all the skeins of yarn i have for a project it never seems as heavy as the finished project winds up being, do you find that to be true too? and if so, why is that??

    Well my afghan is coming right along. I need to pick up a couple of balls of yarn next time I'm in the city. I forgot today. I still haven enough until Sat. I think will be back in the city then.

    I'm really enjoying crocheting.

    Melissa, you are one busy girl.

    Melody, I applaud your 1st effort being an afghan! You want to see a pic of mine while I'm working on it?

    To turn the corner/row go to the tutorial Tutorial - Crocheting 101 - Part 1 about 1/2 way down is a post Row 2 that one and the next explain with pics how to turn. It is easier to see than to explain. This is doing single crochet. What stitch are you doing?

    If you need anymore help, just holler!

    I agree Melissa and I don't have an answer as to why?

    For this afghan I am using a smaller hook than I usually do so it is taking much longer for me to complete.


    WTG CJ!! I'm so happy you are enjoying crocheting!

    Dee, its kinda neat. When I can't quilt because my sewing room is upstairs and when the kids are downstairs I have to be, then I crochet. If I'm waiting for something to bake in the oven or supper to cook and I'm not on the computer, then I like to take out my crocheting and do a couple rows.

    I am finding my afghan very heavy though. Its reversible and will for sure, be nice and warm for the person who is getting it.
