The crochet projects
Yesterday was mostly about shopping and packing and today will be more of the same. But in the evenings this week I have had some crochet time.
I'm halfway through this project. It's the blanket stitch using Lion Brand Mandala yarn, 2 balls. That little bit of white is left over from a previous project so I just tied it on here in the middle to use it up. I obviously won't finish this before I go so I'll take it to work on and finish up while we are away.
I got the car project started. You can't really see the holes created by the filet crochet stitch but, trust me, they are there. It's not going to be the prettiest blanket ever but it will look better as it gets bigger. All that matters is that I have something to do for the 16 hours in the car over the next 2 days and this will be perfect. I've not used this yarn before but it's really easy to crochet and it's quite soft.
I'm so excited that I've learned to do foundation double crochet! My chain row is always too tight so being able to to a foundation row of stitches really helps.
I've downloaded my blog app to my phone so I'm going to try to post at least a photo each day while we're away. If all goes well there will be a lot of sewing progress. Now I'm off to start playing Trunk Tetris with the packing.

Was it last year that you did the leaf sunprinting? That was neat to have a project in Maine which led to a project at home. It looks like you're going to be devoted to FPP this year. Have a great time!

I have used that Caron yarn for weaving and it works up nicely. I can see the filet stitch "holes." That is going to be pretty.
