Crocheting Again ~ Christmas Candy Afghan


Crocheting Again

My yarn bag keeps calling me to take it out to my yard swing and enjoy the day, 

... so here I am again as my sewing machine patiently waits. 

This is my 

Christmas Candy Striped Sampler Afghan ~ Started Here

It is a monthly BOM kit and I am a few months behind as I have been focused on finishing other projects.

This project was Last Worked On Here.

If it looks like I am stitching the same rows again, it is because I am.

If you look closely you may be able to se there was a dye lot difference in the Snow White yarn in the second month kit. The new ball is much creamier than the first.

At some point I decided that I was going to have to pull the rows in the sixth stripe out and redo them with one dye lot.

I received another skein of whit in a later kit that tuned out to be a perfect match to the first skein, so I only pulled out a few rows.

The ball of creamy white will be saved for use when needed. I think if I use it in stripe that is not too close to other whites the difference will be far less noticeable. I suppose I could request a new skein that is a better match, but it feels trivial at this point.

I shall crochet on.

I hope you are having a good day 

and that your weekend will be a happy one.

The thought of you crocheting on your porch swing is delightful. Enjoy the fine late spring weather, your machine will be ready for you on a rainy day or when the muse urges you back.
