35 squares done.

Quick post square #35 done and now it's time to join the squares together. I read the pattern and I hope I can do this thing. It will be my first afghan that I have had to join together. I hope the long tails that I left on each square will be enough we shall see! then the edging. I think I will wait a while for the graphic granny from crochet today the first issue that I want to make and have all the yarn reading and waiting because you have to join together a lot of very small mofits. So on to what I hope is an easy project. I started an afghan tonight from Leisure Arts Quick Crochet Afghans Book 3 designs by Linda Lunder I am working #3 Shells afghan in royal blue it is an acrylic yarn the brand name I love this yarn super soft from Hobby Lobby, and it is very soft some acrylics are rough. I have to do acrylics because I have an acrylic budget. Single parent of adult child in college and I work for the County. I spent some time working in the yard today raking leaves and taking them to the edge of the yarn so that I can get ready the yard ready to plant flowers and the vegetable garden. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Square #35 on the hook!!

Okay I just lost my entire post and it was a long one. Well let's see if I can remember everything that I wrote the first time. I received my swap package in the mail today. It was great I participated in the Get Wild & Woolie Yarn Swap @ crochetville. It was a great package and my swap partner was great. I am posting a picture of what I received in the swap and in the March dish cloth exchange with atmyhouse group. I have deciced to learn how to knit I signed up for a class in May I hope I can do this not to sure. Knitting looks hard to needles and I don't know? when I see all the beautiful things that you can do with knitting I really want to knit. I have square #35 on the hook for the blushing grannies afghan I think I will wait until this weekend to try and start stitching the afghan together. Happy crocheting and knitting.
