Made a top from old-weird-splitty-linen-yarn (MaggiKnits Maggi’s Linen) that I really needed to either use, or toss. No pattern, just my crazy idea, but I cleared out a good amount of drawer space in my yarn dresser. (Just in time to stash some hand dyed from a friend)
“Yarn Diet? What’s a yarn diet?” Like any diet, I just can’t seem to follow it. – LOL
I make these when I drive – YEP – You read that correctly. BUT not when I’m moving, just at traffic lights, train crossings, bridge openings, lunch breaks or just as a passenger when someone else is driving.
This WIP has been “In progress” since February 2009. In my own defense, it’s pretty hot here to be stitching together a heavy blanket, so I only worked on it in the winters. Looks nice on my bed but I have so many of them and this one is extra long (5′ x 8′) and going to my tall ex-husband. He always appreciated my crocheting and is excited to have this one. Done in Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice, once washed it became incredibly and surprisingly soft for a machine wash/dry afghan.
