Sorry for the lack of posts. I hadn't been crafting for a while. I started crocheting again in June. There should be a few ta-daa posts coming up. I've been crocheting like crazy. lol
I've been wanting to make an afghan using this pattern. http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2006/11/vintage_vertica.html I finally did it. Using up a bunch of Bernat Baby Coordinates and Caron's Simply Soft scraps that I had left over from other projects. It's 90 stitches long & 55 rows wide. I held 2 strands together & used a N hook. I love how it turned out. It's so very soft & plushy.
The edging is a round of single crochet(us), then a round of reverse single crochet.(link in my sidebar under crochet 101)
I had a bunch of scraps left still so I started a giant granny to use some more up. Here's the start. 2 strands held together & a N hook. Have to wait for some more simply soft left overs to finish it.
