Winter Handwork


๐Ÿงถ I’ve started a new winter project just for me! I hadn’t crocheted much in years, just a scarf or hat here and there. A few months ago I saw some really pretty afghans crocheted by Eight-By-Six and that was all it took for me to decide I wanted to crochet again. And since I love scrappy quilts, I wanted to do a scrappy granny square afghan. I gathered yarn from thrift stores, some I found myself and some were found at Legacy Sewing and Crafts for me… thanks, Sue! ๐Ÿ˜‰

To keep it scrappy, I randomly pulled colors from my basket. However, I wanted a single color to join them and had decided on gray. I was going to buy some when I finished all the squares, but yesterday, on a thrifting trip to KARM Stores with my sisters, I found two large bags of brand new skeins of charcoal yarn!

Please don’t judge my granny squares… my left hand goes numb, my right hand cramps, so my tension varies a lot! ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿซฃ

I’ll share more when it’s done at the end of winter. ๐Ÿ˜

Do you do any handwork in the winter? Tell me in the comments!

Take care,
