When I was packing my crochet bag for Women’s Retreat, I wanted to carry only the one thing (no purse) so I took everything out, vacuumed the cat hair from the corners, and laid out what I wanted to take with me.
Along with the usual pattern book, and my hooks pouch, there would be my wallet, the cell phone (even though the signal would be roaming most of the way) and the camera to put in.
This left room for the yarn and my wooden spindle.
It seemed like two 4 ounce skeins of yarn would be plenty to begin the next baby aphghan.
I started the first loop and chain at the first STOP sign near the church building, then crocheted all the way there. It looked like so much fun that our driver decided to stop at a WallyWorld somewhere in Indiana? to buy some yarn and hook so she could work on something after we got to camp.
As fast as my hook was flying, I began to think that 8 ounces would not make it to the trip home, so I bought a couple balls of 4-ply cotton and tucked them into the corners of my bag.
I began the second skein of yarn on Saturday morning, then finished it Sunday morning.
Yep, the two extra balls gave me something to work into potholders on the way home.
this was worked in one weekend
and already measures 34” by 24”
Last evening and this afternoon at the Needlework Group, I worked another half of a skein. It looks like I might be able to be doing the border by the weekend.
Rest assured, you’ll see a picture of the finished blankie.
