More Lap Robes
This one is, again, worked in the box (brick or brain-dead) stitch which creates such a pretty texture, but as the larger balls of leftover yarn get worked up, I'm left more & more with shorter lengths. The brick stitch, unlike regular double crochet, doesn't work far enough over the yarn ends to hold them in place so for every yarn change there are two ends that need to be run into the crocheting with a yarn needle.
Hence my switch to plain double crochet to use up the smaller amounts. This rather "wild" one was made with balls of yarn that were sitting around in various bags.
This one is slightly more planned using all greens. I brought the tote of green & blue yarns up from the basement & for the next while I'm going to be working in one color in various shades for each project. There's enough of the greens left over for a second lap robe which is already started, then I'll tackle the blues & hopefully by the end of the year empty the various totes.
As you can see in the last photo, I had a helper for my photo shoot. Between the camera batteries threatening to go dead & Sadie, I'm afraid that I didn't arrange the lap robes to their best advantage. This was a toss it down, point & shoot session.
