How many projects are too many?

I can't answer that!  As far as I'm concerned, the more the merrier.  So, since the ripple afghan is completed and delivered I had only one thing to do ... add another afghan project.  Let's see, that makes ... oh, for now I'll just say that there are many projects a few which you know about.  Someday I'll fess up to all there are ...  I can never get enough.  The latest addition is another Wool Eater. 
Soft white, medium purple, dark orchid and orchid.  I had originally thought of incorporating a green but I think I'm going to stick with just the purples and white. 
  And yes, I'm using my old standby Red Heart.  I know some are not fond of Red Heart, but I have to tell you, when the project is completed, washed and dryed ... goodness, it is very soft and wears so very well.

Although I talk of crochet, 
my heart, prayers and
thoughts are filled
with Boston. 


  1. is it really soft after laundering?

  2. sorry, that probably seemed like a dumb question but i can't afford to spend a lot on yarn, and this particular yarn does not seem soft while still wound in a skein. so i was wondering.
    thank you

    1. Maura, I found it to be soft. I love it!

  3. Oh I love the pattern and the colors you have chosen..looking forward to seeing the finished project.

  4. Hello my sister...oh this is so pretty too, you have the eye for colors. I like this wool eater pattern and yet have not ever took the plundge...I think it's because of the pesky hexy, I'm traumatized.....a moving hook is a happy hook.

  5. Love the purples and white, Gloria! I, too, use a fair amount of Red Heart yarn. For one thing, it's the most affordable, and as you said once it's washed and dried it isn't nearly as stiff as when we are crocheting with it. :)

  6. Wow, I love all that purple! It's going to be so pretty!

  7. Beautiful colors! Red Heart yarn is quite inexpensive. I often use their thread, but I haven't tried their yarn. I should give RH a try.

  8. Beautiful colors!!! I can't wait to see it all done!
    I too am thinking of the people of Boston!!\

  9. Even I cannot answer that question:) the moment I am done 60% of current project I start thinking about next few more new projects.
    Your purple combination looks nice! :) does this pattern really eat lot of wool?waiting to see it completed.
    Also, I could see a centerpiece in the image. Is that a between meal centerpiece? I was thinking of making one.

  10. Hi Glor.. Love those colors and they look great in the wool eater.. My prayers and thoughts are also with those in boston at this time.. Blessings... :)

  11. Oh I love, love, love your new afghan. I am gonna hunt down the pattern and see if I have some of that same yarn in my stash! I love those colors. The green sounds nice, too...but like you said, all purple and white will be so pretty.

    I am nearing the end of our CAL doily...how's yours coming along?

    Oh, you can never have too many projects going, it's like potato chips, who can have just one?

    I love Red Heart yarns and make all my afghans out of them for the very reason you stated.

    I can't wait to see your progress.

    Blessings always dearest friend.

  12. As far as I'm concerned, there's no such thing as too many projects. (you should see the overflowing supply at my place!!!)

    I love your choice of colors, and my heart goes out to Boston now, too.

  13. These colors are so pretty. I like Redheart too - you can get it anywhere and most likely 24/7. -)

  14. Love the colors Glor and I love the square, can't wait to see it when you are finished.

  15. So pretty! It reminded me of lilacs at my former neighbor's home! Her name was Grace and she had bushes from white to deep purple! I cannot wait to see more of it!

  16. Love your colors! Is Wool Eater the name of the pattern? It looks very pretty. Personally, I prefer Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn! because it is softer on my hands. Red Heart didn't bother my hands till just a couple of years ago, but now it makes them itch. Could just be me and my allergies.
