Crochet project update
I introduced my newest crochet projects last week and I have been making some good progress on them. If you are interested in knowing any of the patterns go back to last week's post where I have then all listed.
This project seems to be moving along fast but that's always the case with granny square projects. But this is a very easy pattern that doesn't require too much attention so it's pretty speedy. I like how this yarn is looking.
In this photo it looks really square and flat but it's a little wavy so I will probably need to block it. I think there will be three rounds of hearts and maybe a few solid HDC border rows.
This is the progress on Tim's blanket. The yellow marker is where I was last week. I'm closing in on the second of 7 skeins of yarn. This one will be going on vacation with me for sure. I think the baby blanket might actually get done before I leave.
I'm really enjoying working on the Mimosa Spring. The red marker on the left is where I was last week. It's going a lot faster than that tshirt top did. I think crochet garments need to be made with more open stitches patterns to avoid boredom. This pattern is really clever because it's worked all together without much seaming. I started at the shoulder and worked the back yoke and then went back to the shoulder to work the 2 front yokes. Once the right yoke is done I'll start working front and back together to join them and work to the hem.
So far so good on all of the projects. Switching projects every day is making such a difference for my hands. I will continue to do this for all of my future projects.

You are making good progress on all your crochet projects! I don't remember if any of them have a deadline. No deadlines means switching around isn't an issue.

I know what you mean about switching projects to save our hands. I suspect I'm heading for carpel tunnel issues and am trying to avoid it.
