    Yesterday was not as long of a wait time, but still managed to finish off the one dishcloth I had half done, finsihed off another small one to use ukp that skein of cotton, and started another one.

    I also like peach and green together, but agree they have to be the right colours of each or eeww!

    i keep plugging along on my spiral. the colours are black, yellow, dark blue, and red. it started as a small project for my theology class that i decided to keep making in to a blanket. each colour represents part of my spiritual journey thus far.

    Still plugging away at my afghan. Ugh, I hate this thing BUT I will finish it. Hoping to have a big chunk of time to work on it tomorrow.

    Can certainly understand why afghans would be popular to make this time of year for all of you in the cold country!

    Dinah - love the idea of using colors as representations on yourjourney!

    Making afgans in winter/cold weather is always a wonderful thing. Now if only at least one of the afgans I'm working on was long enough to cover my feet at this point. lol But at least I'm pretty working on two that are going to be for myself, rather than something I'm giving away.

    I finally finished the last RR that was nearly done. Well, I have 4 more tails to tuck in, but that's five minutes attention tomorrow morning while I drink my tea. I have another started, but just barely. As I may have posted, I need a break from crocheting after furiously cranking out stuff last year. Now I'm immersing myself in cross stitch for a while. But I'll be back! Meanwhile, I check the thread to see what everyone else is up to.

    So happy that I have my wool and alpaca afgans this winter!! Even when the heater comes on, I'm still toasty warm enough to wonder why the heater kicks in at stupid o'clock in the morning.

    I love to snuggle under afgans in the winter. It is finally cold enough to need one here. ( 18 degrees this am) I started another afgan on sunday. It is supposed to be a one skein afgan, but that was a one pounder skein. since I am using smaller skeins, I suspect it will take 3 or 4 skeins.

    Happy stitching!

    WTG on your projects. maybe I can stay motivated.

    A one skein afgan? That sounds more like a lapgan to me. Still, I have some leftover alpaca yarn so I started a lapgan for myself. I may put that aside since it's still so small and go back to one of the other full sized afgans that I've already started. It's pretty cold here too and looks to remain that way for the rest of the week. I think the dusting of snow we got last night is probably going to stick around for a while.

    Those 'pounders' can just go on forever.................what is the pattern? I am always amazed at how long they will last............think I have only completely finished a couple of them...........but not as avid as crocheter as some on here.

    Gave myself a break from crochet today to see if that will ease some the arthritis pain in my thumb. If so, I will figure out a way to monitor crocheting so as not to 'piss off' my thumb! Will not give in!

    Hi ladies! I had to take a break from crocheting cuz I aggravated my carpal tunnel, but I'm getting ready to go back and work on my granny square afghan some more.

    Started another neck wrap with the homespun.........and ripped it out.........love the colors but don't like working with it.....I will make what I call a "cheater scarf" with it........you just lay out the yarn.......tie a few knots....cut it..........done deal. Good thing I only have two skeins of it and both diff. colors.
