This past Friday I decided to take the plunge and start my first afghan. After all, I've had the Q hook for two years and it was still in its wrapper. So off to Michael's I went. I got six skeins of the Homespun, Deco color (which is a very nice off-white, cream color). I completed about 2/3 of the first set of yarn (two strands together). I think it's going rather well. Maybe I'll have it completed by the time school starts, which is August 10th for our school district. I already had someone in mind as to who will get this for Christmas, which is why I chose the color that I did, so that it will go with their furniture (if they so desire to set it out).
Hmmm...since it's working up so smoothly I may even make one more. Of course, I haven't forgotten about completing the purse and bracelet. I just needed to start something new to get me back in the mood to work on those things. And oh yeah, I did sorta promise my daughter I would do up some scrunchies. Well, time's awasting...I'd better get cracking.
