A Sad Hiatus

On Sunday morning I fell on ice walking to work and broke my left wrist in two places. I got lucky because this is my non-dominant hand, but I will still be out of commission for some time. And just when I reached the halfway point on V’s First Afghan and was about to report that project was going on hiatus because I started a new project, Brrn & Janna’s Baby Blanket. Now everything is on hiatus, including two plans for spring projects, and I’m not sure for how long yet, which is troublesome.

I’m trying to remain optimistic, however, that this won’t be a permanent hiatus. And in the meantime I still have a few blog posts to write, and now will have the time to do it! It might just take me a lot longer, though….

WIP Report: Ups & Downs in V’s First Afghan

After completing the second section of mink brown double crochets I switched back to wheat and started a section with a modified version of another stitch from The Big Book of Crochet Stitches, Ups and Downs. It’s an easy stitch that’s fun and produces a nice texture and solid appearance. I had some ups and downs when I was stubborn and insisted on working too late one night wanting to finish this section and made a mistake and ended up having to rip out several rows until I found it and redo them. At the time I kept telling myself to take a break. Maybe next time I will listen….
