What's on your hook today?
I have a spidey style toddler ghan on mine today.
It's been on there for a few weeks now :B I've been busy doing a lot of computer stuff, setting up RoseRed Designs, taking classes, designing, having back surgery - it all adds up to eating a lot of time I'd much rather spend crocheting. So - without further chit-chat
I know - not the best picture I've ever taken
but I'm just glad that I finally took one.
Caron Pounder Scarlet and Black
Red Heart Royal (blue)
Bate Bamboo handled J hook
Right now it's about 3 feet across. I want it to be 4 1/2.
I do have to say that mixing Caron Scarlet (which is one of their thicker yarns) with the RH Royal (which is one of their thinner yarns) makes for a notable difference. Once it's washed and softened up it won't be as bad but these 2 yarns do not combine well.
Looking at the pic - I wonder if I should go in later and backstitch around the added points. I'll have to wait and see until after I surface crochet the webbing onto it.
I could kick myself (if I could lift my leg that high lol) for not doing the black round in hdc. They're done in dc like the rest of the ghan but I think the hdc matches the topstitched webbing better in size. It's a minor thing but something I just totally forgot until I was too far into the blankie to change it.
So - what's on YOUR hook today?
Are you happy with it's progress?
Plans for it when it's finished?

(I've seen several blogs that have a lively and happening comments section going on. It seems like so much fun - I'd love to try something like that here)
