Without a doubt, this was the year of the sheep.
By December we will have released all twelve Little Sheep Virtues.
Not long after the first release (which was HOPE), I bought some sheep-like yarn and started a granny afghan. Yes, another one. You are probably wondering if I even know how to crochet anything else. I do. . . .but don't want to! I love grannies!
The yarn is Lion Brand Homespun and is a bit of a handful to work with. The results however are worthwhile. I say this as I get the cobwebs off of the project. I put it away when the weather warmed up. In Arizona, yarn and summer just don't match up well.
The two sheepy colors I chose were Barley and Pearls. I didn't use a pattern . . . just created it the way I do all granny squares with one exception. . . . .I decreased the center joined circle by one chain (I did four and then joined the circle) and I also decreased the corners by one. . . . two instead of three chains. The center gets too big and loopy if you chain five and the corners get out of share if you chain three.
It's cooling off so I wanted to get it out again and get going on the squares. I may just finish it before summer 2014!
Happy Stitching. . . . .
