Work In Progress (WIP) 2015 Crochet Along – Mystery Afghan: Clue #2

wpid-20150308_154253.jpgHere is  my WIP for the Mystery Afghan CAL. I finished them in 8 days.

Clue #2 can be found here.

This week’s clue was learning to crochet a cross on top of the existing granny squares from the first week. My mom called this “surface crochet.” I am indifferent right now to this technique. It is new to me (which makes it a little weird and scary) so I am willing to hang in there and see how it all turns out. This technique opens up the possibilities for incredible designs. True works of art! Right now I am a little sad that my squares are being convered up!

I still need to weave in my ends, but I am so behind in my weeks due to multiple illnesses in my house that I may just wait until I am caught up.

Here are some more images of Week #2 WIP:

I hope you all will following along with my progress (here or through Facebook) or sign-up yourself and post your own progress! I think this will be a great project for myself to learn and grow my skills. I am very excited to be participating in my 1st crochet along! This is the 2015 Crochet Along – Mystery Afghan by The Crochet Crowd.
