Unraveled Wednesday- April 19

Joining Kat & friends again this week for Unraveled Wednesday!

Trying something new to me,
work on only one project at a time!

My current one-at-a-time love is

Ring of Change by Frank O’Randle
I’m on row 52b, the 3rd row of 4 rows of crocodile stitches, that look like scales.

Lovin’ the colors!

#The 100 Days Project

#The100DayProject update
April 10

My 100 days started on April 10.
I have crocheted every day for 8 days.
Whoot! Whoot!

April 10 I was on row 46.
Today, April 17, I am working on row 53b.
Row count looks like this: 46, 47, 48, 49, 50,
51a, 52a, 53a, 54a, 54b, 53b.
10 rows completed.

Rows 54b, 53b, 52b, & 51b are Crocodile scales and
worked over the frame work made with the ‘a’ rows.
I’ve not done this crocheting before.
I enjoy the challenge “Can I do this?”

This picture shows 2 row of the frame work
and 2 rows of the crocodile scales

The hook shows where I was on April 10.

4 rows of waves, dk orange, brown, white, lt orange
1 row med brown
4 rows of frame work, v stitches and posts
1 complete row of scales, the outside row
The yarn is variegated orange through brown,
I really like the way the colors change.

Isn’t it pretty?

#100 Days of Crocheting

Over on Instagram, @elleluna and @lindsayjeanthomson are hosting #The100DayProject.

I have a crochet project I want to get done this summer.

Perhaps with a challenge like this – crocheting, at least,
a little time on it for 100 days straight;
I’ll see some progress.

Rings of Change
March 6, row 45 completed

I started crocheting again on this afghan last week,
working on row 46 with it’s 590+ stitches.
As I was ending the row I realized my count was off.
I started counting/checking my stitches
from the beginning of the row
and found a mistake within the first 12 stitches.
I had to frog (rip it, rip it) the entire row.

I finished the redo on April 10 and started row 47.
I’m counting this as #1 of 100 days.

It is 11:21 PST.
So if I am going to crochet on Day 2,
I better get started.

Wish me luck –
Starting is easy for me,
continuing that is the hard part.

Yarn Along – Feather and Fan

Yarn Along
~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here.~ This is how Lisa begins her blog, Small Things, on Wednesdays.

Many of the wonderful items, knitted or crocheted,
I see get added to my someday list.
Books and authors, new to me, peak my interest.

Feather and Fan or Old Shale pattern is an easy
yet not a boring pattern to knit.
I  love the way it finishes.
I started this on in December, 2016
and finished it last week.
I was hoping for last Wednesday
so I could tell you about it,
but late at night I knew I’d never make it.

I borrowed Old Shale tablecloth pattern.
I love circle afghans.
I think I’ll do this one again someday.

Ravelry notes

I am trying a very NEW thing for me –
ONLY ONE knitting/crocheting project at a time.

Next WIP to complete is this beatiful orange/brown
Rings of Change by Frank O’Randle,
approved by Buster.

Started in May, 2015,
Worked on diligently, until decrease.
I struggled with wrapping my head

putting everything in time out for about 4 months.

Lately I’ve been crocheting.
I forget what I stumbled upon that pushed my
“I wonder if I could do that” button.
Mandelas, Corner 2 Corner, Frank O’Randle, and Cherry Heart
have stretched my simple crochet beginnings.
I’m loving it with the same enjoyment I found with trying new knitting patterns.

I’ve started reading  ‘Alaskan Skies’ series,  #1 Touching the Clouds  by Bonnie Leon.
“Kate Evans is an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. She pilots a mail-delivery plane in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, the lone woman in a male profession. But even that seems easy compared to finding true love. She likes a fellow pilot and would even consider marrying him–if it weren’t for Paul, a mysterious man on her mail route with a gentle spirit and a past to hide. Can Kate break through the walls Paul has put up around his heart? And will her quest for adventure be her demise? “
Light reading – so far liking the author.   Linked to Goodreads
