Stripy Fun

Im almost at the end 
of this stripy goodness

This has been one of my 
favorite things to crochet

Lots of colors and 
stripy patterns

I was a little worried
about maintaining my stitch count

But with stitch markers 
its been pretty easy

I cant wait 
to get to the end of one row
and start another color and pattern

Now to decide 
on the color(s) for the border

Im thinking maybe red

Ta Da.....

Well it seems I have been 
f o r e v e r

Its done except for 
weaving in some of the ends 
....which can wait a while
you cant see them can you???

HA.......the blue one needs the ends woven in too....I hate that part

I started looking around the internet
for my next project 

I came across this 
crochet along on
littlewoollie's blog

Im somewhat of a perfectionist
so I hesitated on making this
because she mentioned that
the ends may become uneven
because of the different stitches

Which means to me a LOT
of counting and paying attention

But I really like the color
and the different stitches
so.....I went thru my yarn 
and gathered the colors that
were similar to hers and got started

So this is is how far I got 
over the week end
and I am enjoying the process

Its not the colors I normally choose
but I really like it!

To keep track of the stitch count I 
put small safety pins 
every 20 stitches

As I complete the row
I move them up and this has 
worked really well to keep
the stitch count consistent

As I look at the pictures here
Im thinking.....

What have I gotten myself into???
