So I agreed to make an afghan as a door prize for a church function. I wanted to get started right away, since I don’t have a whole lot of time to work on it. Somehow little boys don’t get too interested in letting Mama sit and crochet. Anyway, I decided to use some yarn I had leftover from previous projects, so I could get started quickly, and also to help with the cost. I began to crochet this so pretty, girly, afghan.
And then the yarn ran out.
No big deal, right? I’ll just get some more. Except, they apparently don’t make that color anymore! Believe me, I looked online and visited several craft stores. So this afghan is uncompleteable (obviously, a word I just created). I’m kind of disappointed, but I think I’ll use what I do have for a Valentine’s table runner.
And I was able to get enough skeins of some new colors to begin the afghan.
I’m super excited about these colors! I was wanting to make the afghan somewhat like this to begin with, but didn’t have the yarn, so now I get too. We’ll just have to see if I can bear to give it away…
