A WIP that became a RIP. Now how is that for a good tongue in cheek joke just for us, the die hard crocheters in the crowd? How many WIPs do you have hanging around? And how many have you decided to rip apart in order to use the yarn? Now most of you can easily take a little trip to the store if you need some inexpensive yarn, but in my case while there is yarn available just a fiveteen minute hike up the hill, there isn't any DK weight yarn like for example Red Heart Super Saver, which is what I used to have quite a bit of. Only I've been using it up, and while in the process of crocheting myself an experimental shawl of sorts I ran out of black yarn, hmmmm. And then I realized that I had crocheted this (unfinished) pillow case last year with the entire back, plus button flap in that same black that I reallly needed. It didn't take much for me to start ripping out all that precious work, because sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
And truthfully, while this would certainly make a nice pillow, I'm thinking I'd rather wear these granny squares as a scarf of some kind. So the grannny squares stay (plus there are nine more all ready to go that were crocheted for the matching pillow!) but the pillow idea is history for the moment, and I now have a new black shawl, and hopefully a funky granny scarf, coming up!
Wanna crochet some granny squares like these? You can find a nice tutorial here. Happy crocheting!
