The afghan that I have been working is getting bigger! I wish I would get the grid going for what hexagons would go where so when I tire of crocheting the hexagons I could work on joining them. I haven't even decided what join I will use. Thinking probably just 'sew' them together instead of crocheting them. And will I use the off white or something different? I have a few sewn together with the off white so will probably will use that. For those that remember when I was debating about another color I chose the blue to add that you see in the top two rows. She has a blue bedroom with most of the other colors as accent in that room.
In one of the nearby small cities is one of my fav stores to visit when I am there. It is called Dollar Daze but not everything is $1.00 but prices are discounted. I found a small skein of yarn that I knew would make cute hat for an 18 inch doll but I was able to make a hat for 18 inch and Barbie doll and a scarf for each of them also. I think they turned out very cute.
I found another new stitch that I have never tried at Moogly's called the linked treble stitch. I plan to use it on my next doll skirt. I like the looks of it mostly because it doesn't seem to leave any gaps.
How to join yarn by making a double knot by Jane Richmond. tying two skeins of yarn together I use this all the time now. I have even been successful tying two different colors together at the end/beginning of a round.
Have you found any new or just new to you stitches or helpful hints? Please share with me along with link where you found it.
