Gina’s Shell and Post Stitch Afghan

17 July 2013


Thank you, Gina, for e-mailing your picture of the gorgeous afghan you made. She used the Shell and Post Stitch Afghan pattern. She said the following in the comments:

“Just completed this pattern, finally! I absolutely love it. I struggled with it at the very beginning. But once I realized my mistakes and got the hang of it, it was easy: love repetitions :-)
I used  charcoal, bright green, pale yellow, bright orange and white. Made this for a young lady who’s been battling health issues for the last 3 years. Hope she likes it!”

Homespun Log Cabin Lap Blanket

24 September 2011

I had all these little bits and pieces of Lions Brand Homepun, but not enough of any of it to make anything, so decided to just make a lap blanket of the whole lot. I liked the looks of this log cabin blanket, and thought this was the perfect yarn selection to give it a try. I made one major change from the pattern. Instead of binding off each band, I held the stitches on holders and picked them up for the next band. I was thrilled with the results and will most likely make more of these.

I had initially intended to donate this to charity, but my husband really liked it, so we kept it.

July 2011 Hospice Batch

12 September 2011

I made eight donations to the July 2011 batch for hospice.

I had a big spool of this double worsted weight cotton yarn that I could not imagine a use for. Since I didn’t know how far it would go, I decided to just make a big granny square, so that it was done when it ran out.

This lap blanket is made in bulky weight yarn that my aunt and uncle bought at a yard sale. The design is my own Boardwalk Ripple Edged Afghan.

When sorting through my enormous stash of yarn, I found where I had made a few inches of this baby blanket. I thought the yarn worked well for this pattern, but my original start was for a full sized blanket. I ripped it out, and made a preemie set. I improvised the hat to be of the same pattern. The pattern is Rainbow Sprinkles by Kathy Wesley, published in American School of Needlework #1255, The Ultimate Book of Baby Afghans.

This is made from Caron Simply Soft yarn. I worked on this for seven months off and on. It is my own Stained Glass Ripple Afghan pattern.

I don’t know why I originally bought this chunky yarn, but I love how it turned out in this long wave patterned lap blanket.

I used a Caron One Pound skein to make this lap blanket in a butterfly lace pattern.

I made this lap blanket with one skein of Caron Jumbo Prints. I love the prints because they are so soft. This is a pattern I have used before and I’m sure I will use again. The pattern is Diamond Ripple by Anne Halliday in Leisure Arts #108214, Afghans for All Seasons, Book 2.

When crocheting with Lion Brand Homespun I like to use a pattern that is mostly crocheting into chain spaces rather than trying to find stitches. I have used this pattern a couple of times before, and I’m sure I’ll use it many times more.
