Finished it up this week. It reminds me of a sock monkey! My plan is to make about three crocheted pillows for the bed. Cozy things up a bit.
I must admit since the holidays I have been in a little bit of a creative stupor...finding it hard to get my mojo going. Working on these grannies has helped a little bit, but I'm still not quite there. So to shake things up a bit I decided to try something new.
It's called Spike Stitch. I saw this online and had printed it out long ago, put it in my notebook of things I wanna learn. This is sure fun to work on. Will make a great companion to my granny square pillow, don't you think?
But alas, just as I was getting back into the groove...I run out of yarn! Drats! So, in the meantime I will just post some pictures of this pretty little stitch.
Looks pretty with the beginnings of another granny square, which I started this morning ... my hands had to keep busy!
This stitch wouldn't work well for scarves and the like, it is so thick. I was thinking it would make an awesome bathroom rug. I don't think I pull my stitches as tight as the pattern showed. The pattern almost looked like waves. But no matter, I like the way it worked up.
I am off now for a cozy spot on the sofa with my Phoebe and a movie...love the lazy Sundays!
