Crocheted Afghan

 It has been quite a while since my last post.  Sorry about that, my dear readers (both of you!).  I've been spending a lot more time sewing than I have with my computer; that is my only excuse.

Here is one of the things I've been working on.  I decided to crochet a baby afghan.  I used to crochet many years ago, and felt a yen to crochet again.  So I bought some nice soft yarn (nothing fancy, I bought it at Michael's), and didn't have a pattern, so I just decided to make some stripes.


I found it a lot of fun to be crocheting again.  Just like riding a bike.  It's such a nice, portable project.  Much easier than taking sewing things with me.

Here are a couple of close-up photos.  I'm not sure what I'll do with this afghan, but I know I will give it away to someone.

P.S.  I've already started a second afghan!


  1. That is lovely Jan! I'm jealous that you crochet too. I never got that, my sister is the knitter/crocheter in our family. It's ok though, I think I have enough sewing to do. :)

    BTW, spending time at the sewing machine is NOT an excuse. It's a right. he he


  2. It is beautiful Jan. When I had my first baby I received an unexpected gift from someone I did not know well. It was a beautiful snuggly soft crocheted afghan, also done in stripes. It was one of my favorite baby gifts. It was SO soft.. he loved it too... You will make some lucky person, baby or expectant Mama, very happy one day... lucky them!!

  3. I just want to curl up with that blanket! I know it is going to make someone very happy and cozy. Bravo!

  4. Thank you, all. I'm really enjoying this new crocheting phase.

  5. you have more than two readers! :)
