Back to my first love

Ah yes, back to some crocheting. What did you think I meant? ;-) I took a look at what I have been doing over the past few months and it has all been knitting since my Spider Stitch Shrug (finished in May). This is partly due to the joy of my growing ease with knitting, partly the small projects I have wanted to do have just happened to be knit, and partly because (shhhh... don't tell any one this) I am finding that I just like the look of knitted fabric better than crocheted. However. I still really enjoy crocheting (and in many ways find it more relaxing because there is less tension concerning dropped stiches and it so much easier to rip!) so I was eager to start another crocheted project. Enter: the Bacon Blanket. No, I am not turning into Lady Linoleum ! ;-) My hubby took one look at the wavy chevrons and colors of my afghan and dubbed it the Bacon Blanket...

No pattern, just the chevron pattern from the Crochet Stitch Bible. We'll see how it turns out... maybe it will need an egg pillow to go with it?

Poke you with a fork, I think you're done! Nah, it does look like bacon at the moment, but I'm sure it will grow out of it.

I like the color combination and the stitch!

I'm with you on the knit/crochet debate. I like the drape of knit better than crochet for certain things but still love to crochet best. Love the bacon color combo.
