This is my first W.I.P. (work in progress) post. Usually I work on small items that get finished before I can remember to photograph them in progress, so when I began this afghan I jumped at the chance to get some photos. Granted, they’re not the best due to the crappy weather we’ve had (I had to take these indoors).
This is an (almost) full shot of what I’ve completed, so far. At 11-1/2 hours it’s 44 inches wide and now 17 inches long. My goal is a length of about 56 inches. Yeah, I’m going to be at this for a while.
As much as I love crocheting afghans, I don’t make many. They take up a lot of time that could be spent on smaller items that are more likely to sell. I also don’t like being one of the Etsy Sheeple, but after seeing all the zigzags and chevrons on the front page I became obsessed with creating this old school throw.
Here’s one that shows the texture, better.
I really love working on this piece! This is the type of throw my mom used to make when I was growing up. I swear she’s the voice in my head, telling me when to change colors.
If all goes as planned, expect to see this work in progress, completed, in my Etsy shop next month!
