Scrap Afghan

Scrap Afghan
Originally uploaded by Pirate Alice

My project I've been working on for the past several years is a scrap afghan using a pattern from the Ultimate Book of Scrap Afghans. I'm not sure I'll ever finish, but it is fun to find some yarn laying around, forgotten and left over to use and throw in two rows. Unfortunately, since I had left it for so long I forgot where I was in the pattern when I picked it back up. I started working the row back only to discover by the time I reached the end to turn that I had turned and started working back an entire half shell too early. I did manage to fudge it and added the missing stitches to the end of the row after the fact. But there was a time there I was very worried. Huzzah for quick thinking!

That's a lovely way to use up scraps of yarn. I've been looking for my perfect way to do that, since I'm often attached to the yarn I've used for gifts, or lusted over while it was in the shop for months on end...I'm going to keep this one in mind.
Hope you are feeling well!

Courtney, or anyone really,

If you like the looks of that pattern (more shots at my Flickr page) I'd be more than happy to share the pattern.
