Pussy Pink Afghan

Reconstructed blog post - for hooking posterity sake

The Name

Pussy Pink Afghan (B.S.T.*)

The name comes from La Reina del Jamón‘s desire to include “Pussy Pink” in her afghan. Having no familiarity with “pussies or pussys,” I incorporated a range of pinks. As luck would have it, the hottest pink was the one she had meant.

The Afghan

Dimensions: approximately 4 x 6 feet

I think I acquired the pattern from Project Linus, whose website has undergone a revision. I don’t have time to find the link; besides, there are plenty of patterns available.

I had just resumed crocheting as a means to pass the time of a four-hour commute to, and from, work; consisting of a bike ride to the mall, a bus to the train, a train to a bus, and that’s just one way! I biked over to the neighborhood Walmart, bought a plastic hook – because they looked cool – and some assorted acrylics in pink.

The Yarn

Unknown Pinks & White
Colors: Assorted Pinks & White; Content: Man-made fibers; Weight: 4, Worsted

I learned a very important lesson with this afghan: always make sure you hav enough yarn of each color – though when improvising a design, how is one to know how much one will need? I ran out of one color and upon my return to the store, the color was no longer available. To make matters worse, the yarn company had discontinued the color, forcing me to find a close substitute.
