Previously known last week as Unnamed Pattern #1, I decided that The Kindness Wrap was a much better choice. I am continuing my theme of being kind towards others. It’s a tough world we live in and kindness will go a long way towards making it better.
This is a fun and easy pattern with an unusual shape. Starting with three double crochets, the pattern grows on one side before becoming a rectangle that lays across the back. To finish this wrap the double crochets are decreased until you reach the final point.
I came across The Adirondack Wrap by OneDogWoof designs a bit over a month ago when someone posted a link to the pattern on Facebook. It wasn’t hard to fall in love with this wrap. The geometry of three triangles sewn together to create one big rectangle caught my eye. When I saw that it used Lion Brand Mandala, I knew I had to put it on my hook. This is what I chose to worked on today at the library.
Everyone in my immediate family has their own creative talents. Some of these talents overlap since Mom and I both crochet while I spin some of the yarn Mom likes to use in her knitting. My Dad takes over the mechanical aspect of things when hardware is involved like adding grommets to the sock yarn bags my Mom sews. Sometimes all three of us collaborate to create a true family project like the one I am showcasing today. This one became even more multigenerational as you will see below.
Remember my post from last Tuesday about me frogging a sweater I knew I was never going to finish? Oh, what a stir it caused! I’m still laughing about the insanity! But now I have to get back to work with the remnants of that stupid sweater. It was an ugly frog that needs to become a handsome prince. What shall it become?
Perhaps I should just chuck the whole lot and give it to charity. The problem is that I am very stubborn when it comes to problems that need solving. I will work on them far longer than I should. And I’m afraid that this is the long road I will travel with this frogged yarn.
To tell you the truth, I am in the mood to spin. But today is supposed to be a crochet post so I decided to browse the newest patterns on Ravelry. I hope I can find some inspiration to get me back on tack.
Welcome to the first installment of WIP Tuesday! I’m looking forward to sharing projects that are currently on my hook in the hopes you will be inspired to join me. There is also my selfish desire to kick myself in the rear so I can finally get my ever expanding pile before my home gets taken over by the WIP Monster.
Today’s highlight is the “Cloudberry” blanket/lapghan designed by Johanna Lindahl of Mijo Crochet which caught my eye several months ago as I was browsing her website.
