My “Sophie’s Universe” Blanket

About 2 weeks ago I started my version of the “Sophie’s Universe” project and tonight am working on Round 30 – there are only 7 more parts to go before I’m caught up haha – easier said than done!  I think Part 11 of Sophie has 4 rounds; 81-84, so see there are only about 50 rounds to go before I’m caught up!  Doing this crochet along makes me want to do a second one, because it’s so intricate, has a multitude of stitches and techniques that I’ve never seen!  When the spare money is there I’ll get some really nice yarn to do another one!  Here is a photo of what I have done so far 🙂

I’ve got another CAL project going in my spare time with “The Crochet Crowd” – their “Mystery Afghan” – it’s almost time for the Week 8 clue!  (To be released on Tuesday next week.)  Mikey seems like a really fun person, and he’s a great teacher too.  

One thing I’m addicted to is crochet stitches – there are hundreds of them and I seem to have quite a collection now, in the way of magazines & books, and book-marked websites!  I found another one today called a “Bullion” stitch that I’d never seen before – way cool!  Going to have to practice that one.  I need to get busy and make more wash cloths too.  I’ve got a couple bags of various “Peaches & Cream” and “Sugar & Cream” brand cotton and it’s wonderful for making washcloths – so soft!  Cloths for washing dishes is something else too, because I want to be moved into my own home/apartment before summer’s gone this year!  More on that later on…

Take care all – until next time, PEACE!
