Mermaid's Medallions

Ahh...It feels so good to complete an afghan. I just love it and when it is a new pattern I am using I am even happier about it. It still amazes me how simple it is to turn a ball of yarn into a functional blanket or sweater using only a hook...and some skill.

I think I may try knitting again at some point but Crochet just feels right and good in my world.


I get super excited when I have a pile of squares growing higher and higher.

Then the moment I get to put it all together comes and Pow! I have a new afghan. Mermaid's Medallions is her name. She took me appox. 36 hours to make. I am trying to keep track so I can figure out a fair price. Not easy!!!This afghan has a lacy edging. I have never stitched up anything like it before and it was a blast. Looky...


Oh yeah, this one is a keeper.

Of course I already have another afghan on my hook and this one is named "Hugo". ;0)

Lovely colors and patterns!

My mother (may her soul rest in peace!) was very good with the crochet.

Unfortunately, I haven't inherited her skill, but I do admire people like you who excell at this kind of craft.
