Crochet Strips

I brought my crochet I started awhile ago to Minneapolis and finished the first strip on the airplane!   By now, I’m on my way back from Germany and I brought it along again.  After 11 hours on a plane both coming and going,  I should have a bit more finished.  I’m not crazy about how it’s looking, but it keeps me occupied and the actual process of crocheting is so much fun!

If you remember, I made a mistake in the second color.  So many of you were kind enough to help me through it so I ripped out the rows, went back and corrected it.  I’m not sure if I’m following the directions correctly.  I feel like such a newbie at this but I’m continuing on!   Mooch seems to like laying on the little strip I finished, so maybe that’s a good sign!

I’m using Rowan cotton yarn for my crochet and it’s delightful.  I found out at market that Amy Butler has a new line of her own yarn with Rowan!  Just look at these colors!

And look at this display she had in her booth!

Color after beautiful color!

What colors would you pick?   I’d actually be happy with almost any of them.

I should be home soon.  As soon as I recover from the jet lag I’ll be back with more posts!

  • Michelle - Beautiful! I may just have to start crochet again! I haven’t done it since highschool.ReplyCancel

  • Donna Liljegren - Hi Anne:
    Glad you’re traveling safely as you make your way homeward. Your crochet is looking great, and I, too, just learned about Amy Butler’s new cotton yarns. All great colors! I’m looking at (and actually “fondling”) all my new Lily & Will fabrics from you and am looking forward to the line debuting so that I can make a quilt using your fabrics. Thank you again! I’ll be back to visit again soon.

  • Beth - I think your afghan is going to be really pretty when you’re done! Love that Amy Butler yarn! For some reason I have been all into knitting again the past couple of months after a long hiatus from it, so that yarn looks scrumptuous! I will have to remember to watch for that.ReplyCancel

  • Sunny - Your pinks are gorgeous! Because of your earlier post, I decided that I just had to crochet a pink afghan. I took two plane trips in the last couple of months, and crocheted the whole time. It’s fun, it’s mindless, and it made the time go faster. I just got back into crocheting about a year ago, and I’m enjoying it. Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • Mary Ann - I struggled to figure out crochet so have gone back to mindless knitting!ReplyCancel

  • fiberdoodles - They are all so pretty it would be hard to pick ~ I want them all :0)ReplyCancel

  • mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I love this so far! Haven’t crocheted in years, but this may inspire me to begin again. My mom and I each have a box full of leftover yarns, beautiful colors perfect for granny squares. I hope you recover from your jet lag quicker than I did after our recent trip to Spain, took me two weeks to get my days and nights back in order :-)ReplyCancel

  • Mary Meats - I would probably go after the greens–I have warm coloring and at this point if I were to knit or crochet, it might be fun to do something for me this time such as hat, scarf, gloves–too fun to think about.
