More done

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Worked on it some more today. 6 more rows done I think. It covers my entire lap but I believe I will have to make it about twice as big as it is now for it to be finished.

I realized when I started that I wasn’t using the I size hook as suggested by the pattern. Which is why I ended up going to Walmart yesterday and purchasing both a ruler (to make sure my gauge was correct) and a larger hook (I went with N).

When I measured my gauge I was stunned to realize that I am nearly 50% off. It will take twice as much yarn than the pattern calls for. Not a terrible thing, as I bought double the yarn, but it makes the lapghan that much more expensive to make. If I end up selling it, I may not make much of a profit, if any at all.

Day 2

I didn’t get a lot done today; only 8 more rows. It is Father’s Day so I’m trying to make sure my husband and my son have a great day together.

After taking ~5 year break from crocheting, I wanted to pick an easy pattern to get my fingers warmed up once again. This pattern, so far, has been quite simple and looks great!
