Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

The Crocheted Afghan

The Southern Pearls fingering weight yields fourteen of these squares per skein which is perfect: three skeins turn into an afghan of 6x7. A "lapghan" actually (or baby blanket) since the squares are only about 6" each.

Youngest Duckling is helping display the colors and design--she was entranced by the flower-like centers.

Those look so cool! I totally want to learn to crochet. (I almost typed CROTCHet, and that would be something else entirely, now wouldn't it?)

Hope your weekend is fab.

Oh Kenny you make LACE; of course you've got the patience for an afghan!

It's like eating an do it a bite at a time. Which might be something entirely different if it were Matt's crotch-et, wouldn't it?

I particularly like the colourway by Youngest Duckling's hand. Soft pretty colours.
