A New Craft Obsession

While nursing Hunter last week, I caught the end of Knit and Crochet Today on Create. They demonstrated a block from their crocheted afghan sampler. I downloaded the pattern from their website, and got to work during some downtime at our homeschool group.

Five days later, I'm halfway through block 5 of 12. I've gotten my buddy, Michelle, "hooked" as well. We're planning to work on our blocks during our playdate this week.

The blocks are so quick and fun. Meggie (9) has even finished one. I just grabbed some yarn from my stash to start, then went to Wal-Mart over the weekend to buy the rest to match. Based on the color choice, I'm thinking it will be a throw for the girls' room. I'm already planning on making several more. The boys have requested one in "Star Wars Colors." Not quite sure what color that is!

  1. You will have to do a "show and tell" class in order for me to figure this one out. Sounds cool but I am not good at knitting at all.
