Crochet Love along – week #2 update and GIVEAWAY!

October 09, 2013, 11:42 am  Posted by Lark

Welcome to our second week of Crochet Love Along updates! Our projects are starting to look like…well…projects. And some of us are starting to feel the love, sort of.

Shannon (who is making the Skinny Scalloped Scarf): I’m about halfway through my Skinny Scalloped Scarf, and it’s looking…ok. I started to get the hang of crocheting the closed scallops right about the time I finished them. I’ve started on the second part, the open scallops, and I’m sure I’ll get the hang of them right about the time I finish that row. It’s really fun, though, and I’m not expecting perfection from myself. (I’m leaving that to Dawn, who is already on her third project, blast her!) And I’m thinking about which crochet project I want to tackle next. My little girl wants me to make the Missoni-Inspired Necklace for her, so I’ll probably take a stab at it and see what happens!

Dawn (who made the bear ears headband…and moved onto her second and third project already!): I’ve made two hats since last week! I would’ve started crocheting years ago had I known I’m capable. Time for a break, or time to make something bigger/more challenging?

Beth (who is working on the washcloth from the soap saver set): I’m making progress, slowly but surely!

Amanda (who is working on some fishies from the fish mobile): Hey, look…it kind of looks like a fish!! I’m moving slowly but thankfully, these fishies work up pretty quickly. I’d have been done a long time ago, but, admittedly, I keep hopping around to other last-minute gifts: a set of coasters as a wedding gift, a birthday beret for my niece, and an albatross of an afghan (granny squares!) that I started and am determined to finish in time for Christmas. More progress next week, I promise!

    I love to crochet with fabric to make rag baskets. I taught myself to crochet just so I could make them. I might also try making a rag rug using the loop stitch since it looks interesting and fun.

    I love to crochet because it’s so relaxing. I also knit, but I find that crochet is easier on my hands.
