Ready. . . . Set . . . . GO!

 As I promised -
here are the pictures of the things I made and donated to the church auction.

"Hairy" caps and ruffled scarf

Mile-a-minute afghan

Here is a close-up of the stitches.

A mile-a-minute afghan is made in strips and then single crocheted together. This one has 8 strips using off white for the center of each strip, then a single row of beige, a single row of variegated to add a spice of color, one more row of beige, and one of off white. I added 2 rows of single crochet around the whole thing as I think it gives a more finished look. I am not real fond of fringe but I do think it adds a nice effect to this pattern. Would you say this would fit in the Victorian category?
I love the softness of the colors. Would you also agree that the colors would work in any home? That is what I try to aim for when making something for the church auction - something for everybody's home no matter what the decor, thought maybe it wouldn't fit in a modern one. It speaks to me more like country, Victorian or traditional. And I think those are more popular in my rural area.
I am so happy to get these projects finished! They are already at the church, and the auction is this Wednesday night. Now I can get back to decluttering and organizing. I hope I can also finish this project for once.


  1. Beautiful afghan, Lorita. I think you did a great job on and nice choice of colors. It would go with many rooms.
    No idea on your funny cat- but our dog would also pick different spots to sleep in it.

  2. That's a beautiful afghan Lorita! I do agree that it would go in most any room, as it would fit nearly all color themes.

  3. Thank you, ladies, for you kind comments!


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
