I decided to start another afghan yesterday because our spare bedroom is overflowing with my recent yarn purchases from Joanns. This is starting to tick off my husband because he likes to store most of his military items in that room as well. He has more of a tolerance for completed crochet items rather than boxes of unused yarn. So I went searching for a new afghan pattern.
I've mentioned before that I like to try something new when I make an item. The pattern for the Herringbone Afghan uses the double treble stitch which I had never used before. I also have to make double crochet stitches either behind or in front of the double treble. It's slightly awkward but I'm getting the hang of it. I don't have to do this for the whole afghan, just the sections where I'm using Red Heart Super Saver in Aran. The sections using RHSS Soft Navy are half double crochet in the back loop.
I'm not sure when this will be finished since I'm already freaking out that I won't have enough of the Soft Navy color. I have the suggested amount but I have a feeling it's going to be close. If I do run out of yarn, I will just have to put off ordering until after we move. Hopefully we will find out some more info soon.
