Here's the practice edging I did while trying to choose the border for my afghan. It's from my new crochet borders book. I went around one of the squares. The edging is from the dark green row outward. Of course I'll frog the edging when it's time to add this square into the blanket. I like how it is just a tad ruffled and it has only 4 rounds! I'm gonna do this round in white and not green (see red circle in pic). That way the green will look a bit like stems for the lavender stitches so they look like flowers. Yup, when you're a flower freak that is what you do.
Tracy makes beautiful quilts and someday she can show me what she knows (I say to myself hopefully like) please.
See, it holds my crochet hooks! Did you guess right? The next morning when I got up, I put them all in their new home. She also gave me this darling strawberry pot with seeds (a kit) that I will start next spring.
Here's a couple pix of my new yarn (ahem, thread) together with the new green I got since it was handy and tried the two together. It worked pretty good, the yarns stayed together nicely, so far so good. Now to find a yarn that will go with it color wise, is the key to it working out. Then what shall I make???
Hope you're having a lovely and relaxing weekend despite the fact that our world changed drastically 10 years ago today. My prayers are with everyone who lost someone dear to them, so damn sad. Even with the state of our economy, it's great to be alive. Be thankful and grateful for all we have. Take care.
