Works in progress

My afghan is coming along (this is only about 1/3 of it. It's going to be enormous!)



and I'm working on a threaded crochet motif from Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet, which I got out of the library.

Re: Works in progress
It's pretty intricate. OTOH, it's all stitches I've done before, tho' way smaller, and the book uses different abbreviations for them than the sampler afghan book I learned with, so there's been a certain amount of undoing and grumbling and consulting of instruction sections.

Re: Works in progress
And thanks re: the picture. I started taking a picture of it, and then I realized I needed something in there for scale.

Yay for $10 drugstore glasses.

Thanks! One of these days I'm going to convince you that it's not hard. (I still can't get the hang of knitting.)

Wow, beautiful. I really like the color choices too. I wish I could still do handwork (I get RSI and have to save my hands for typing at work).

Thanks!

Agh, that must be frustrating.

I do tend to get addicted to crochet and do it until my hands are aching. Tsk.

Wow. I am so in awe of people who can crochet. I just can't make sense of it.

The afghan has great colours, too.

I'll download my crochet brain to you, if you download your knitting brain to me.

Thanks!
