Saturday Fun

Hi! Its Saturday night , almost 2 in the morning and I stayed in for once on a Saturday night!! I went out last night to a fare-well party for one of my military friends who is being sent to Hawaii....lucky bum! Got home this morning around 4, so today was to be a quiet restful day at home...LOL I got sucked in to the lure of visiting my LCS next door, and came out with just a few purchses - she must have seen me coming!

Todays Stash Purchase

While on the tram to purchase some postcards to send out (RAOK coming perhaps??) I worked on putting together my first attempt at a dishcloth....liked how the yarn turned out - was really hesitant on buying it! I used Anchor Magic #1420 made by Coats (not sure if it is sold in the US)

My First Dishcloth

Finally, I finished off the last of my edging on the joined Square/Wedge combination for my Star Afghan - I still need to tuck in the edges, but was too excited not to share!

Star Afghan Update

Wow that looks amazing! The colors go really nice together, but I especially love the pattern! Did you come up with this on your own or is it a pattern you found somewhere?

Kimberly said...

The color scheme is mine, but the pattern comes from Herrschners Blue-Ribbon Afghan Book - the pattern, Blue Star, is actually featured on the cover done up in shades of blue! I switched to a trio of three colors - Cream, Lt. Sage and Country Rose, and crocheted to fit. I loved the blue colors, but part asked you to cut the dark shades of the multi-blue out which was a bit too complicated for me as a beginner!

They don't sell the Anchor here in the US. Which is a shame really. I know that a lot of people would love to purchase it.
