MANIPULATING YARN

The new kit came for the Casablanca Afghan and it is a very interesting crochet!  I once crocheted with two colors in the same row a long time ago and it was good to learn how to do something new especially when it has such pretty results!  I have to make two more of these blocks so maybe I can have the last one done from memory! lol
 I also used the last little bit of the sock yarn to make a Barbie dress.  I have another one on the needles;  the directions are for knitting it flat but I like to knit in the round so there isn't a seam.  It worked out well because there is enough room in the directions for your own design elements!

  2. Those blocks are really pretty.
    I would love to knit Barbie clothes, but I don't have anyone to knit them for at this point. Maybe someday?
