This is the pattern that I'm using for my blanket (that I'll be keeping for ME) I did not make much progress last night. If anyone has any tips/suggestions for making puff stitches as they are to be made on this pattern PLEASE let me know!! I spent over an hour last night trying this, getting out my stitch pattern book and trying every kind of bobble, puff, and popcorn they talked about. I got about halfway across the first row using a bobble (5 dc). I like it, but of course I'm always going to have a right and wrong side to this afghan how, which I don't know how I feel about quite yet.
If someone can tell me between now and 6:30 tonight a better way to make a puff I will seriously be your new best friend! My issue has been that by the time I get alllllllllllllllllll those loops on my hook, I find it IMPOSSIBLE to pull through 8 loops! I've tried to do this "looser" but have not been successful.
Still no interesting picture to post....
Maybe this is why I rarely make things for myself, I over analyze to the point where I'm rarely happy with what I"m making for myself. I'm not this critical when I make things for other people (which sounds really rude of me) but everything always turns out great and makes me wish I was keeping it for myself!
