So I scraped the scrapghan. I have no qualms with being honest- it was ugly. I tried to embrace the granny concept, I really did. I just couldn’t get on board with it. Instead, I told myself I was dropping everything else and working on a coral, turquoise and white chevron throw. I even talked Smee into letting me buy a new duvet cover if I finish it. I need 75 rows. So far I’ve finished 25. I’m hoping to get it finished before the move (in 20 days, eek!) so that I can have a new look to the bedroom in Austin. Unfortunately, as you’ve probably figured out about me by now, I can’t stay with one project for long without starting something else.
Yesterday I decided to try my hand at a free pattern I’d pinned a while back from Playin’ Hooky Designs. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll admit I hated it until the very last row. Not because it’s a difficult pattern (although it isn’t one you can do while watching tv. There’s a lot of counting involved), but because it just didn’t feel right. After the last row, though, all of the sudden you look at it and think “Dang, this is cool!” I thought they’d make a nifty fan-type beanie for different sports teams. Seeing as how we live in Denver right now, I thought I’d try Broncos colors…
Unfortunately, the dark blue and orange kind of look like tiger stripes. I did have a few people point out that if I changed the blue to purple, these would make fantastic Clemson fan hats. Considering the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) is responsible for the roof over my head and the groceries in my fridge, I’d have to make them while hiding in a cave deep in the woods. Blasphemy, I tell you.
All in all, I think Moose really could care less about the whole situation:
