This week I decided that I wanted to make an afghan out of the different crochet bobble patterns that I have instead of dishcloths. I've made a bunch of cotton dishcloth ones already this year. Because they are so quick and easy to make, I should be able to make a nice size afghan rather quickly (within a year's time). The type of images that I want to make kind of scream out kid's blanket, so I will be making it for my youngest son. Shhh, don't tell him. So I picked out 2 colors of Plymouth Encore yarn to start off with. First I picked a nice rich blue color, because he love the darker blues. However a few of the patterns that I want to make will look better in green, so I also got some green. I figure that as I make more than I can add in other shades of blue and green as well as some purples. I'll just add as needed. Because of this loose plan I will wait to sew the squares together when I have enough to make the afghan, that way I can arrange all the different colored squares in a visually pleasing way.
One of the Disney Adventures challenges (ravelry) this month is for Disney Legend Steve Jobs. He was the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc., so I want to make an apple bobble square for this challenge. This pattern can be made in less than an hour. I also started the other bobble apple from the pattern charts as well.
