Time for WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesday! I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been crocheting like a madwoman and that I would share my current WIP with you today.
I have been wanting to make my firstborn grandson a throw with his fave baseball team (Kansas City Royals) on it and I finally found a good pattern. Of course, there had to be some changes made but with the help of the original pattern designer, I managed to get the pattern I wanted.
So, I had to change the CC in the upper left-hand corner to KC and of course, the name of the team from Chicago Cubs to Kansas City Royals.
The narrow blocks are the quickest to get done, and then the smaller rectangles and squares like the KC are fairly quick. What’s really maddening is when you get a couple rows done and then the count is off. It’s hair-pulling time! I sometimes can’t find my error and then I have to frog (take out) a few rows and do them all over again! UGH! It happens, but mostly when someone is talking to me (Dad) and I lose my concentration. And then sometimes this old mind of mine wanders and I lose track of what row I’m on.
This is what I’ve got so far. I still need to do a few of the outer blocks and the name of the team. I might run out of royal blue and sungold but I think I’m good on the white. I’ll stop at Hobby Lobby on Saturday and get more if need be. What do you think so far? I know it’s hard to tell until it’s further along or joined together. I can’t wait to get it finished!
My grandson is going to love this! He loves his baseball! Not sure if I’ll give it to him for his birthday in October or for Christmas. I guess it depends on how excited I am when I finish it!
