Sneak peek – monochromatic afghan

I’ve been, to my complete surprise, a little bit obsessed with my afghan. I’m  used to knitting, where the rows seem to never increase at times. So it’s a bit foreign to see each row of this blanket increase so quickly. This is my first linear crochet project, and I’m impressed. Already it’s about 37cm {15 inches} long and I’ve been working on it casually for 12 days. The pattern I used was very narrow {the width of my lap}, so I doubled the pattern so I could refer to it as a blanket, as opposed to a wash cloth.

We watched Beetlejuice last night which I thought was kind of fitting {re: his striped suit, in case it wasn’t clear where I was going with that one}, so I took a couple of pics of my progress to share. First Halloween movie of the season! Yes to cuddling under crocheting.
