What Have I Done To Deserve This?: Strip 3 Complete

Oh my God! I am so glad to be done with crochet seed stitch. Now I need to figure out how I am doing to seam these strips together.  My first thought is double-sided, slip-stitching for ease of matching stitch counts when the opposing stitch patters will differ. Whatever the choice will be the next post will be to mark the completion of this project.

What Have I Done To Deserve This?: Strip 3 Update

“What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

Well, I have 40 inches; 32 more to go.

I had to pull out my stash bin for more white yarn, having already used one Caron One Pound and three Red Heart Super Savers. I found some smaller skeins in my stash; I hope they are sufficient to complete this project. I had also found a bag of white, with a bag of black during my stash search; I’d hate to touch that, as it appears to be a project in it’s potential state.

What Have I Done To Deserve This?: Strip 3 Started

“How am I gonna get through?

I am on the last strip of the afghan, thank heavens. It took a while to get the right width, and even when I did, sometimes it measures out one inch bigger. Aiyaa! I don’t think I will work in crochet seed stitch again for a while.

Now for Strip 3: 20.5 inches x 72 inches: all, in white crochet seed stitch…aiyaa!

I have returned to What Have I Done To Deserve This? , where I have frogged the three rows of dc I had completed and began with crochet seed stitch.

My latest, concentrated effort is the field of white crochet seed stitch. The current Caron One Pound (color: 501 White; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 4, Aran) I am using seems a bit more on the aran side versus worsted of the original piece; although, I see no width-stretching that, I hope, will even out in the end.

While you can’t see it, my field is fairly even in width to the beginning striped piece. I am hoping to complete the 38 x 8.5 section before I go to sleep tonight.
