Sammie Sunday and the Unhappy Hooker

These were taken last night about 1am-ish, so yeah, technically it was Sunday!

Here we have Ms Sammie "helping" again...but hey, you're not supposed to sit inside the project bag!!!



Yeah, this is what made the "Hooker" unhappy. I was trying to crochet and there she is INSIDE my project bag, with her bad, white, fluffy self daring me to pull out more yarn.



Well, we all know how this ended...she was banished from the bag so I could work more on a blanket project. It's a double-stranded (two yarns held together, nothing fancy) and crocheted using a GINORMOUS hook. That thing is mondo gigantic. I love it. The blanket is as wide as my double-sized bed and already about 7 or 8 inches along. Love giant hooks, love giant stitches, love how quickly this blanket is going.

Another thing to make the "Hooker" unhappy...I've frogged the Random Acts of Acrylic blanket. I'm just not doing something correctly along the left edge. The right edge is perfect, but the left edge is just totally W-R-O-N-G! Have to take another look at the how-to's and then try again. This time on something smaller as that blanket would have taken FOREVER to finish. I still want to make a blanket though with all that acrylic and I still want to do the Tunisian crochet. I'm thinking squares of it put together...like a Granny Square blanket. Maybe strips. Dunno. We'll see.

In the meantime, I've started on the giant stitch crochet blanket, and the few acrylic balls I was using for the Tunisian crochet project are sitting at the bottom of my argyle scarf project bag, thinking about what they want to be.

Oh, and the scarf?

28 pattern repeats my friends. YAY ME!!! Depending on how you look at it...I could have either 4 or 6 left. Four would get me to the estimated 32 I needed for "perfect length". Six will get me (or should get me) to the end of this current set of yarn balls (2 more repeats or 28 more rows, that's nuttin', right?). Right now, I'm so excited about actually working on such a cool pattern again (and it is despite my recent whining), that I just might work it til the ends of the balls. I hope to have it finished by the time Spencer comes back from spending time at his Dad's - Wednesday. I can do it!!!!

My Straight A Boy needs his warm scarf - especially since we've got a cold front or two headed our way!

  1. Nooooo, she was helping! She was making sure all the yarn didn't come out at once, cos that would have been bad. She's a very helpful pussy cat...

    And besides, she was cold! And after all that help, you kick her out of the bag... poor pussy cat :-(

    Honey

  2. I'm excited to see the finished DK scarf. Sounds like you'll finish it right quick.

    BTW - hope it's quieter today!
