Do you know what I just realized? Today marks six months of WIPW. Can you believe that? I can't. Thanks to all of you who have grown WIPW to where it is today. I can't wait until we hit our 1 year mark!
I might as well call this work in progress I HATE THIS YARN! Yes, for some reason I have two projects to share with you today and both have hard to work with yarn. I'm not exactly sure why I did this, but at least I'll appreciate regular yarn when I switch back.
The picture doesn't do the color of the yarn justice. It's actually more of a raspberry redish purple instead of blue purple. Either way, I'm making a garter stitch scarf. Nothing fancy, because this yarn is a little annoying to work with. It's Alpaca Cloud that I got from Smiley's. It is INSANELY soft, but very wispy.
This is a blanket that I started from Light and Lofty. I started with this pattern but changed it a little since I'm using such difficult yarn. The feeling if it crocheted is AMAZING, but working with it is almost impossible. To find the stitches, it's all by feel. I wish it was a little wider, so I was thinking of frogging and starting over so that it's a little wider. It's a little more of a throw than a blanket, so I'm not sure if it matters really. We'll see. I will also be using a tan color right after I finish this row.
