Friday was a full on rainy day and I was feeling well enough to sit up most of the day so I made lots of progress on the granny square afghan I am crocheting for Tessa.
I like working with this Mandala yarn, the way the color changes saves me the time of changing colors and weaving in all those loose ends. The changes aren't always perfect but I like just letting the work flow, one of the groups I'm in some crocheters will cut off sections of the yarn to have a more even flow, I suppose that's a great idea for symmetry but to me it's a lot of extra work.
Yesterday I decided to unravel (frog) the a few rows of crochet I had completed on the Ruana I'm making, the stitches didn't look quite right to me, not realizing I wasn't seeing too clearly while I'm under the weather.
After looking at the pile of unraveled yarn I had second thoughts (after frogging 519 stitches) ugh! So I re-crocheted all those rows and then worked 2 more rows. Do you ever do something like that, look at something not sure if you are happy with how it looks so you undo all your work only to realize it was fine? I do it more often than I care to admit.
I'm nearly done stitching the Stitch at Home Challenge piece, I think to finish it I will use a hoop as a frame so I can hang it.
If all goes well and hopefully feeling better I plan to have it completed this week or early next week which will give me plenty of time to make the August 15th deadline. My fingers are holding out fairly well with all the stitching and crochet, but the right side of my neck gets so stiff I can barely move it. Well if it isn't one thing it's another, we do suffer for our Art don't we?
