Unfinished Projects

There are all sorts of new things I'd like to start but I really need to work on some of these unfinished projects.

This was a finished afghan large enough to cover our queen size bed.  I think one of the dogs snagged the yarn and there were holes in the rows of joining.  It's called Fisherman's Ring.  You can find the pattern here.

After taking it apart I thought I would edge the squares with several bright colors.  I wanted it  to have an "Attic 24" look.  I edged a couple in pink and a couple in blue.  After a few days, I didn't like them.  The colors were too bright to go well with the more subdued tan and green.  I pulled this variegated yarn out of my stash and tried it.  I like it much better.  I've edged eight squares so far.

My First Post

I discovered the blog world some time ago and have been enjoying visiting several blogs.  I finally decided to take the plunge and join in on the fun.  I've picked up my crocheting again so I'll give you a peek at an afghan that I started years ago.  It's called Granny Starfish.  I've started weaving in the ends and positioned the little granny squares in the spaces where they will be fastened.
