Summer in Sweden, Underway

As promised, I’ve taken a few progress photos of the new afghan/throw. Or the motifs, rather. They’re nowhere near being connected, yet.

Here they are in a couple of stacks (minus a couple that I’ve worked through to the next round)…

And spread out in the first of two sets…

They’ll take much more room than this when they’re done, of course. I just wanted to fit them into the photo and give you an idea of the color scheme.

I still haven’t decided if I’m going to stick to the “use each color only once per round (per batch)” rule. So far, I have, but I may change that in the fourth round… or in the next batch. I think I may want to work more of the dark blue and dark green into the motifs so those darkest colors don’t seem too spotty.  (Besides, I love love love that dark prettiest-blue-ever, so I want there to be plenty of it in the blanket.)

It’s coming along. I think I’m going to like the finished product, and this method certainly is fast. (I haven’t done any end-weaving, though, so…)

I also took a few photos of the Fluffy Diamonds Pillow.  They’re all basically the same photo, though, so here’s just one of them:

I’ve even used it once or twice, to prop up the Kindle when I’m reading or my elbow when I’m crocheting. (Fascinating information, I’m sure. (g))


I’m Michael (a female Michael, to remove any doubt).  I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast with my husband, Donald, and our crazy American Eskimo Dogs. 

I love to fill my spare time with various crafts and other hobbies, and this blog is where I share photos, record my progress, and ramble endlessly.
