As promised! ;o)
First, apologies for the quality of the photos. The light is sub-par this morning, but I wanted to act while I was in the mood.
Ok, let's start with the Very Vintage V-Stitch Rippleghan!
The last photo shows the afghan's current size. I still have many rows to go to get the length I want.
Also, as you can see, I'm leaving the tails loose. The v-stitch is so open, I think that attempting to crochet over them or otherwise hide them inside the blanket wouldn't work well enough (to my liking). Instead, I'll crochet over them at the end, when I single crochet along the two long sides of the afghan. You could also put fringe along those two sides, but that's a lot of fringe... (g)
Next up, my current knitting project, the One Row Lace Scarf (aka Drizzled Chocolate Scarf):
(Again, not the best photo, but it gets the point across.)
It's fun to knit a row or two, then stop and think to myself, "Wow! I'm knitting!" (g) Sure, it's a super-simple pattern, but it's still knitting. I'm on my way to being able to say I can crochet and knit. (Until I learn to purl, it would feel like a lie, so I can't say it quite yet.)
And finally, a sneak peek at my current crochet secret project:
At first glance, it almost looks like I'm making one of these. I promise you, I'm not. (Not quite my style, I'm afraid.) But while I can tell you what it's not, I can't tell you what it is, yet. Sorry! ;o) Sometime after December 25th...
