Getting Some Stuff Moving Along

I had a really productive weekend. I got some good writing done. I’m about a third of the way into Wexler & Hancock’s Killing King. I had a lovely dinner with friends and then a lovely brunch with some other friends.

And I got a bunch of this afghan moved from “almost done” into “done.”


A thing I have been fretting about with this afghan is that it’s got a kind of decorative doodad on the top and bottom and I have been worried that I might not have enough of the same color yarns to do the doodads. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me until right now, but I can finish my squares and then do the doodads. Then I can use the rest of the yarn on the filler triangles.

Also, because of the doodads, the afghan doesn’t have a border. I’m a little nervous about that.

One thought on “Getting Some Stuff Moving Along

  1. Arranging squares is such difficult decision-making procedure! I’ve started an afghan and I just decided to try strips of blocks with a common color and texture theme. If you’re nervous about not having a border, maybe you have enough yarn to just do one round of single crochet around the entire thing if you decide the edges aren’t even enough. If you don’t have enough of the yarn you’re using, you can use another with a similar weight. I’m pretty sure you can even get away with similar, not exact weight.
