Wednesday WIP

I have had this one on my hooks for a long time now, but it is finally coming to a conclusion. It is the Amazing Star Throw and I purchased the pattern on eBay. This is once again a pattern that I selected to do my own thing with. There are only 9 squares here and mine is a throw not an afghan.

Here is a photo of one of the squares after I added a round of Fushia. I used scraps again so all the squares are different in color and the Fushia round is one of my choice since I want to make the squares larger than the original pattern since it will be smaller than an afghan.

This next picture shows all 9 squares laid out as I will join them. But I am not done with the squares yet as I still want to add more rounds. But wanted to get an idea of how they would look and of how large it would be before I added more to the squares. They all look so different and I think I like the effect that you get with the light and dark best.

This last picture today show one square completed before joining. I still have 8 squares to finish off but I also want to use the Flat Braid joining method again. It is new to me and I want to reinforce it in my head so I won't forget how to do it. If you prefer you can go to uTube and watch this video of the technique, but it does have more than one video. Just google it and you will lots of options to learn.

I did use it on my Calendar ghan CAL which is almost done except for one square yet that has to be done. You will see that soon, anyway it was the first time I used the Flat Braid technique for joining and found I really liked the look of it. I hope to have this Star Throw finished by next week then I will move on to the Snuggle that I started. I may make it yet before the end of the year.

That's it today. Ghost, OUT!

That is going to look so pretty when it's done. I love the color combos you used. Can't wait to see it finished. Great work as always.

That's going to be a gorgeous throw!! I love the pattern and the colors you're using!!! Can't wait to see a photo of the finished piece!

Thanks for your comments on my blog! I have a rigid heddle loom, and I love it. There are several brands available. The cost is around $100 depending on what size and brand you get. I'm still a beginner, but having so much fun with it!
