Having fun over here

Okay, folks, I have begun a new crochet project,
and I am so busy having fun hooking the squares that I don’t want to take time away from it to tell you
that it will be an aphgan for son Lucas
each square is 6 inches on a side using a 4.5mm Addi hook
the color is Peaches-n-Creme cotton color Northwoods
and I need to have it done by the third week of July

Please forgive my distraction.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Thank you Diane –
    I do not mind the link at all – I actually appreciate it.
    Squares look great – love Northwoods.
    I recently test knitted a scarf that will be available for Fathers Day Kits.

    Thanks much!

    It is just a wonderful color and pattern combination. Masculine and yet pretty enough for the significant other in his life. I’m sure it will be a wonderful gift.

    When Lucas was home at Christmas break, he mentioned a great big aphgan to cover the bed after he and Milly get married.
    She prefers the feel of cotton with all her clothes and bedding.

    So we went to the website and he chose 3 colors he thought he could live with, then sent her an e-mail saying she should choose one of them.

    Northwoods was it, so I ordered several cones.
    When they arrived, I realized that ombre colors are only 14 ounces, so then I ordered a few more cones.
    After I finished one cone and counted how many squares, I realized I would need more to have enough yarn to connect them and to do the border.

    So now I have yarn from 3 dye lots. When I get all 180 squares done, I will arrange them nicely from shade to shade before I sew them together.

    Really really having fun here.
    A bit sad that I gotta work from 11am to 3pm today, but leaving the house is good for me.

    Very nice! Love the colorway (AND, you got a note from FLO…very cool!) I’m sure they will love the afghan when it’s done…you do excellent work! (love the pattern sheet in the photo!)
