There's just something about RED Aqua and white
that I just love. Well, the actual name is "Turqua," by
Red Heart. A fabulous blend of turquoise and aqua.
And I'm a jewel tone color girl. Imagine that.
Yes, I know, it's Red Heart SS, but once you WASH IT.
Oh my. Well, it's heaven by the handful.
Yes, you read it right. I WASHED IT.
RED. with WHITE. and that lovely Turqua.
NO COLOR BLEEDING!
You gotta love that!
Washed separately on COOL/COLD temp, Delicate cycle,
with plain old, el cheap-o hair conditioner,
then Downey in the Rinse cycle,
Gentle tumble dry on LOW heat = MAGIC SOFTNESS.
Oh, and I, well I.... I ironed it.
No, no, no, the iron was NOT directly ON the throw.
I ain't THAT dumb!
I used a very old-washed-100-times
white t-shirt, double thickness, with the iron's dial
set on none other than the ACRYLIC setting.
Low, at first, I kept feeling my hand between
the t-shirt and my throw, until I felt it was
safe to go just a little warmer.
Enter a big smiley face here.
I'm not a pro at crochet by any means,
but as I crochet more and more,
I'm finding that I like less of the "hole-y" patterns.
I'm more of the Solid, All-around Granny Square kinda gal.
I was feeling a little adventurous.
So I dabbled a little with design and threw in
the traditional granny square for good measure.
And came up with this.
Not too shabby, eh?
I just love the 'dotted 'X' the solid granny shows.
Another gift checked off my list!
Happy Crocheting, Y'all!
