Giraffe Graphghan

Some days I am working on this graphghan and I don’t feel like I am making any progress at all.

Another two hours.

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.IMG_3209

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)

Baby Giraffe is Coming Along

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.IMG_3198

From the last time to this picture I was only able to work on it for about 30 minutes.IMG_3199

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.

Baby Giraffe Update

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.

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!!!

Baby Giraffe Graphghan

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!

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!
