Hello everyone! Lately I’ve been working on a new crocheted blanket/afghan for either our sofa or bed. (I haven’t decided yet. It will probably start on one and end up on the other.) My pile of acrylic yarn (all at once now: “EWW, acrylic!”) has been piling up over the past couple of years, and though I have come to prefer more natural fibers, I just couldn’t throw out or give away all this perfectly good yarn. I am of the mindset that acrylic has its place in the universe, and keeping me warm in the winter is now that place!
I’m going incognito as ladylovely over at ravelry, where I found this great pattern. I know this pattern has been around for ages, but I can’t resist how cute it is or how well it lends itself to the use of multiple colors. I have been knitting almost exclusively when it comes to yarn crafts and found that I was really missing crochet. I have been enjoying working on this project. I’m using several bright, cheery colors that will brighten my day in the middle of February when it’s rainy and dreary and bitter cold.
Are any of you knitters or crocheters? If you do both, are you preferential to one over the other? Why? Please share – I’d love to hear!
