Confused? It's ok! I didn't exactly tell you what I was making (and congrats if you figured it out!). After digging through my stash for more yarn for an infinity scarf, I realized I have many single and random skeins of yarn leftover from various projects. So why not put them together in a sampler afghan?
(Hush... I know I already have a blanket in the works. But I can have multiple blankets!)
So far I just have two squares in purple, but that's not bad for a day's work. I chose two different stitch patterns that I liked and knew from memory. Please forgive me for not remembering the exact names, however I do remember that the first one is a puff stitch. Both started with a chain of 26 stitches. Once they were the desired size (about 10" I think), I went around the edges with a single crochet stitch, three stitches in the corner, to make it easier to join later.
The blanket will feature both crochet and knitting skills, and hopefully I can tie it all together because I said... there are a lot of random colors left in my boxes. I am also hoping to learn a few new things.
