WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesday 06 April '11

Currently, I have a few projects taking a siesta and I am working on some large granny squares for an afghan. These squares are 12 rounds and only 2 colors per square. The colors I am using are gold and purple with the last round in white. This afghan is going to a Minnesota Vikings fan, hence my choice of colors.

I think the mascot looks like Hulk Hogan.

Anyway, I'm not sure how I'm going to lay these out yet and I may make more than one size. I'll just have to see how it progresses and what my preference is as I merrily hook along.

Here's some info for stash builders. My son and I were at Michaels yesterday so I could get another pound of purple and gold for this project. I printed out a 40% off coupon for each of us to buy one. To my stash building delight, Michaels is having a sale on Sugar and Cream yarn for $1!  I was a bad girl and bought 29 of them.  Eeek, don't let dh know! :-)  Look at the new additions to my stash (BAD GIRL Sharon Marie):

I can see a lot of dishcloths in my future. I tried to stack the yarn in a pyramid shape but it kept falling over so I said the heck with it and took the picture. Anyway, before I started rambling on about football and yarn, I was planning to show some squares. I have 5 of the purple done and with 1 exception the ends are woven in and I have 1 gold square in the works. Here they are:

I normally link my Wednesday wip post to Everyday Crochet but the linky thingamabob isn't there today. Maybe it will be up later on today.

Nice sunny day here today and I hope y'all are having the same. Hugs...

Search Amazon.com for sugar and cream yarn


  1. Wow! I think a trip to Michael's is in my future. That's a great price and I love your colorful pyramid. :-) Your afghan squares are looking great and you are right, the mascot does look like Hulk Hogan. Wonder what he's up to these days? Have a great day!

  2. I think different size squares for the afghan would look good Sharon after seeing the other afghan that was done that way. I went to Michaels today and I bought 5 skeins of the sugar n creme I wanted to get some bright colors. I wanted some of that deep purple you got but our Michaels didnt have it the selection really dissapointed me. That picture sure does look like Hulk Hogan LOL I saw him in person before at the seafood festival that we have here in NC. Have a happy day!

  3. I'm just learning to crochet. I'm sure I'll be visiting you a LOT! :O)
