When it is cold and snowy, as this January has been, my love of yarn overcomes me. This month I have been in the mood to crochet. I have been collecting skeins of Cascade 220 yarn to make an afghan. Lots and lots of colors accented with white.
It is big and is eating yarn: It is as wide as a queen sized mattress. I made the mistake of measuring my progress yesterday: it was only 17” long. Oh dear-in my head I thought it was about 25”! Each row takes me about 40 minutes to crochet-a simple calming repetition of double crochet.
And just for fun, some pink hearts for Valentine’s Day. I am going to make a garland for my fireplace. Each heart is almost instant gratification: I can make one in about 20 minutes.
You can find the pattern for the hearts here.
