Never one to pass up a freebie, I chose some yarn and stuffed one plastic bag full of skeins to take home.
And I've just now finished the afghan I crocheted with it....
I didn't use a pattern...just went back and forth with a "half double crochet stitch". I like that stitch because it doesn't leave a lot of open areas or "toe catchers".
I used nearly all the yarn so it's heavy. I have to admit - I didn't count stitches and one end is a little narrower than the other.
I like to crochet and it's easier than hand sewing while watching TV with others. The hand sewing needs more light (which disturbs the other TV viewers) and it just needs more attention than crocheting.
But, no one in my family really likes using crocheted items so I'll probably donate this.
I found this organization online... Warm up America. They take crocheted or knitted items and distribute them to those in need.
I have a couple of other unfinished crochet projects from years ago. I am going to try to get those finished up next. They are baby afghans so they should be quick to finish.
