A couple of days before Christmas, I wasn’t feeling too good and needed to rest. I was also done with all my crafting for Christmas gifts and was ready to start a new crochet project. I wanted something simple, that I wouldn’t have to think too much about (remember I was sick when I was picking this 😉 ). I decided to make an afghan, my first one, and found a simple shell pattern called the Easy Patterned Throw. I had some pretty burgundy yarn I had bought a couple of months ago that was just waiting for me to use in a new project. So I printed out the pattern, pulled out my yarn and started working on my first afghan. 😀
This is a close up of the stitch, simple single crochet and double crochet shell stitch.
Though I really enjoy photography, I’m still learning how to stage photos to show off my projects. I love how my friend Heather shows off her crochet projects, but I have yet to learn how to take photos that well. I know taking them outside would give me better light, but it was snowing today and I took the picture at night. 😉 I will try to learn to stage my shots better, but at least you can see what I’m working on. It should be a fun winter project, and one I can enjoy doing while listening to a good audio book.
So what creative thing are you working on? Please share. 🙂
