“You always wanted me to be something I wasn’t…
“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.
“I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers…
It looks like things are “shaping” up just about right around here. The picture illustrates how laying out shows sides more even than the last post.
As theorized, I think vertical-strip-design was the way to go. Yay! The middle portion of my schematic is complete…despite an inequality between sides: the top portion is 116 sts, while the bottom is 115 sts. Don’t worry, be happy! This does not affect the other aspects of this design.
I am now working on the the left side; fortunately, the thinner faster side. I’m not looking forward to the right section. While the crochet seed stitch is simple, the monotony begins to bore me and I fall asleep or tire of crocheting; that right side looks daunting!
“You went away, it should make me feel better…
I am determined to keep my legs elevated ALL DAY in hopes of alleviated severe inflammation, so I crocheted since awakening the last of the Caron One Pound from which I was crocheting the seed stitch. This leaves me five-and-a-half inches away from my goal, to finish the first strip
I have indicated, by use of yellow arrows, to indicate the amount of displacement between the Caron One Pound and the existing yarn. It does not appear as bad as it was when I had just finished the first end. Once I add the final two strips, I am now more sure it should all even out.
Time to break out the Red Heart Super Saver I found at a yard sale last week.
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.
