As I pursue the fine art of completing crocheting projects, I bring to you the reality of the U.F.O. or Un-Finished Object. I will try to update this page as I complete each project. If you’re really interested, come check me out and friend me on Ravelry, as I post pretty much everything I crochet on that site.
Project No. 1: Coming from the Leisure Arts book called “Our Best Baby Afghans” is the first blanket I am completing (and is currently in my bag) called Pastel Waves.
Project No. 2: From the site Free-Crochet.com, this pattern is called the Amish Print Crochet Afghan. This unfinished project is probably about six to seven years old, and I used scrap yarn to make most of it up to now. I hope to complete this project and I will probably give it to my local homeless shelter, unless one of my family members want it.
Project No. 3: Lion Brand’s Glittery Shrug. It’s an intermediate crochet pattern and I do like a challenge.A project I started as a crochet-along on Ravelry, I worked on this piece you see for months. I’m not fond of smaller crochet hooks, but I’ve also never made anything for myself that I could wear on my body (only hats.) I really like the color of the yarn and I hope to finish it soon, although I was a larger size when I started it. We’ll just have to see how it looks when it’s done.
Project No. 4: Heart Squares – I couldn’t find the original pattern for this but I do recall it was on the back of a Jamie Brand Yarn label. I plan on completing rectangles to join these hearts with and crocheting an edging around the whole thing. Seems simple enough.
Project No. 6: Blooming Flowers – Another stash yarn project, I couldn’t find the pattern that matched this blanket exactly either! I’m going to have to find it, or write it up, as the closest thing I found in my library was from a book called Big Book of Scrap Crochet Afghans by the House of White Birches. The pattern it resembles the most, but I know is not exact, is Blooms at the Beach by Katherine Eng.
Oh well. It will get done. I know it.
