It's Getting Bigger


Coming right along with this one.  I think I may have used a hook that was too large but it certainly makes it go quickly.  I am inclined to crochet loosely, also.  It's to the point where it is really cozy having it on your lap while you crochet.

 Won't be adding any additional colors and will just continue mixing them up in between the strips of white.  I probably have almost half of this done and when it's done, it's done.  Love that!!   There was certainly not a big choice when I went shopping for yarn.  Most of this is Vanna's.  Maybe I will bite the bullet and go to Walmart where I never shop and see what they have next time I get the urge.  Walmart is soooooo big and not my favorite place.  Love Target but they don't carry good stuff like yarn.  (Click to enlarge)

I like this stitch. I am getting the urge to crochet, Carol. I have a whole tub of different colors I need to use up. I like to crochet in the winter to keep warm. lol

Pretty colors and I love this stitch. I know what you mean about Walmart- when I go there I feel like I've walked a mile and a haven't made a lap of the store. Target is my fav but no yarn or other crafty stuff - and I'm all about the crafty stuff -LOL!

Elle says get the coupon on line and venture over to Michaels, they have a great selection of yarn. Your piece is getting very pretty as it grows. See you on Tuesday.

Is that pattern called "mile a minute"?

Your colors are like your quilts-happy ones! I do like the stitch, too. I've been doing a couple more rugs for Christmas, and it feels good to be crocheting....

Looking good! I just love this pattern and found the instructions on the internet. I'm going to give it a try. How many chains did you start with and what size hook are you using?
