Beauty and the Beast

Wow!  It’s been a whole year since I’ve been on here.  I’ve made a few afghans that I need to post.  I just got so busy that for months I didn’t even get to do any crocheting.  For a while I was working and going to school.  After that I worked two jobs and went to school.  Later I just worked two jobs.  Finally I decided that working so much took away all my “living” time, so now I just work one job.  Since quitting my midnights job I have made one afghan and am finally getting around to writing a post.  I need to get some pictures of the afghans I have finished.  As soon as I do that I’ll work on some posts.

One of the blogs I follow is called The Happy Hooker Blog.  She has some amazing graphs for knit and crochet. You can check out the graph for Inner Beauty at her blog.

When I saw this graph I couldn’t wait to try it.  I have a friend who’s favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast.  I was so excited to see what she would think of this that it only took a few days to make this even though there were points where I had 8 skeins going at one time.

I love the way this turned out!  Usually when I do graphs they end up being way too small to be an afghan.  This one was large enough to cover my queen size bed without adding any extras to it.

For the rose I used a metallic fuchsia yarn, so it has a bit of sparkle to it like the one in the movie.  I used bright yellow for the main piece and café latte for the beast.  The vase is black.

Now I need to figure out which colors I want to use for her The Little Mermaid graph.  I want to make it.
