I bet you’re wondering, “How could this lovely, lacy top be a project from Hell?”
Well, maybe it was more of a learning experience.
It was made from granny squares as I described in my previous post. The challenges were:
- Finding TIME to make enough granny squares — I’m not one to sit for too long doing one thing.
- Finding enough Size 3 crochet thread in the same lot number — it is hard to come by where I live. I didn’t find it, so I used two, similar colors, and just alternated the squares. It’s hard to tell in this photo. 😉
- Figuring out how to attach the granny squares together. I ended up just tying the corners and middle sections. The slippery mercerized cotton kept undoing itself, so I had to make sure the knots were all secure, and weave in all the loose ends. WHEW!! I probably won’t do it this way next time, and will try to attach the squares as I go, as shown in this video.
Anyhow, the project is done, I’ve learned a lot, and can take a break. I’ll probably go back to crocheting hats for charity. Right now, though, I’ve got a huge crop of cherries off our tree to process.
Happy crocheting, everyone!!
