With one row of border to go on the afghan that I've been working on off and on (mostly off) for the last six months, I encountered the words "single crochet from left to right"
WHAT?! That's backwards.
That's not how it's done, what does it even do?
Answer: it creates a really cool ripple pattern, spirally.
As I'm sitting here wrapped up in the finished product, I've just realized it's a double helix. You know, like DNA. Because my yarn obsession doesn't make me dorky enough, I had to throw in that example.
I am really proud of this blanket, though. It's my first afghan, and it is proof that I can finish something of ginormous proportions. It might just take half a year.
I'm definitely going to take a break from the epic crochet projects (see picture of tablecloth in earlier post, if you're wondering why) but eventually I'd like to make a complimentary afghan. Same pattern, warm colors, and this one for me so I stop stealing Ben's.
Really, I've spent more time under the thing than he has, and it is his Christmas present.
PS- I swear to god this wallpaper is the same paper Oscar Wilde was talking about. His last words were, and I quote, "Either that wallpaper goes, or I do."
