Well, another week has gone by and we are that much closer to Christmas. So many things to do and not much time for crocheting. I'm starting to think my afghan won't be done in time for Christmas.
What I had in mind when I started this project was to have a Christmas afghan that I could bring out year after year, throw it over a chair and enjoy it for a season, and box it up again when the holidays are over. I did start on it a little bit late and other more important projects have taken priority, but the good thing is now I don't have anything else to work on and all of my extra time will be devoted to this.
I made one of each of the six different blocks. For the remaining blocks (there's 30 total) I set up an assembly line system. I first made all the centers then I added the second color and am now working on the third color. I prefer this method over making a block at a time which seems to take forever. It doesn't really take a long time it just seems like I'm not making much progress.
With the exception of a few stocking stuffers, I am done with my Christmas shopping. I will be staying in this weekend, wrapping a few presents, and picking up my hook every chance I get.
I hope you are done shopping too and don't have to go out there and fight the crowds this late in the season. I did most of my shopping online. So thankful for internet shopping! :)
Til next time,
