Howdy! I MUST tell you all about my current W.I.P. (work in progress)…
It’s a kids road map that is absolutely super-awesome, fun-filled, and has endless-imaginative possibilities! There are hay bales, a freshly plugged field, long, lush, green grass, and a turning road that can go on for miles upon miles. (Not to mention there’s LOTS more to add to the map than what I just typed!)
I got the pattern from the one and only HappyBerry (click on her name to be taken to the first episode of this crochet-a-long(CAL)). The woman is a true genius, and extremely talented! Hats off to her!
While the road map is indeed a blanket-sized map (I believe she said it’ll be 4’x5′ when completed), I have chosen to downsize mine to 3 squares by 4 squares. Each square is 4″x4″, and the yarn she recommends is DK (AKA: baby sport, or 3-ply) yarn. I’ve used both DK and worsted weight yarn (4-ply) for my map; I simply adjusted the hook size to match my gauge.
My next two squares will be the pond with the round-top trees. I seriously don’t want to sleep tonight so I can finish working on it! It’s THAT addicting! Ha ha!
Don’t worry. I’ll keep you guys updated on my road map. But, until then, I wish you all a happy and safe weekend. 🙂
