Welcome to January's Winter Project Link Party! I'm sharing the main crochet project I'm working on this winter, an afghan made with the Larksfoot stitch pattern. I call my blanket Hensfoot, in honor of my chickens. It's growing rather slowly, especially since the holiday season kicked off. I didn't have much time to work on it, but when I did, it was a nice break from the chaos. Now that we've reached January, which is usually a pretty productive time of the year for me, I know I'll be working on Hensfoot more often.
I've added another six or seven inches to the length since the last link party. I think this is good progress, but I have a long way to go if I'm going to have this blanket finished by spring. That's fine with me, though; I enjoy working on it and it's always nice to have my blankets grow down my lap and legs as I work, especially in the winter. It feels particularly rewarding this winter, since we're having a colder winter than usual.
I love crocheting afghans of any kind but I always seem to come back to striped ones. There's just something very fulfilling about moving back and forth across the rows, side to side, front to back. I like to look at my stripes from all angles. Do you do this too? It's sort of hypnotic to me. I'm still working semi-randomly with my colors, just to spread them out. I do try to make sure colors look nice next to each other, but I think most of them work pretty well. There are
My yarn supply continues to dwindle, the basket becoming a little easy to carry all the time. It feels good to get through some of my stash and make something pretty and useful in the process.
