Some days I am working on this graphghan and I don’t feel like I am making any progress at all.
Another two hours.
But then I go back and look at where I was before I did a session and I can see that I really did make progress.
It just feels like it’s going so slowly right now. This might be because I have a couple of other graphghans lines up to work on and am anxious to finish this one and start a new one :o)
I’m so excited! Baby Giraffe is finally taking shape!
You can totally see that those are feet and the other feet are out to the sides! Yippee!
I have not been working on this graphghan as much as I previously was. I try to do a little bit each day, but other things are catching my attention lately.
From the last time to this picture I was only able to work on it for about 30 minutes.
This picture is an additional hour of work and you can really make out the difference. I am loving working with a chart, but I think the using the SC stitch, while very easy, is not giving the finished look that I would like to have. For my next graphghan I think I will try to learn the TSS.
Yesterday, I worked on the Baby Giraffe Graphghan while I was waiting for various appointments and kid’s activities. All in all I managed to get about 2 hours of crocheting done.
Progress 10/20/2014 – 2 hours
It was so exciting to finally make it to the first color change. This is at the bottom of the graph – so it is the giraffe’s left foot. I found it so hard to stop crocheting last night!! I wanted to keep going to the next row for more colors – I can see where I am going to become VERY addicted to graphghans!!!
I am so excited to be starting my very first graphghan. I have been following a few bloggers and am a member of the facebook page, Graphghans Unlimited and love the art these talented ladies create! This morning the owner of Graphghans Unlimited released a free graph for an afghan titled “Baby Giraffe”. It is so cute that I have decided to make this one my first!
Baby Giraffe Pattern from Graphgans Unlimited
I will try to follow her pattern.
First day – approximately 45 minutes – 4 complete rows.
This is my first little bit. It took 45 minutes to do 4 complete rows and they are all in black (my chosen color for the background). Wish me luck!
