Weaving my web……

Woven strips of yarn, who knew it could be this easy!  I really wanted to see how much work it was going to be to get this afghan going.  The strips were, quite honestly, getting  boring to keep making.  So, I decided to assemble a square to see if I understood the directions.

You start by taking one each of 2 colors, attaching them at the ends with a safety pin.

So far, so good.  Taking a light denim strip you place it next to the denim strip already attached, but under the navy one.

Over under, over under.  The safety pins keep them in place easily.  Now you do the same with the remaining 3 navy strips.

Almost there…..

Now this was making loads more sense!  I really wasn’t sure how this pattern was going to come about.  I think I will get one of each color combo pinned before going on to the next step.  We are off and running…….. Cyn

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
