Slow Sunday Stitching | Crochet Rainbow Afghan

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

My Slow Sunday Stitching is a crochet rainbow afghan for my bed.  

Yesterday was Pick Up Day at our house.  I worked on picking up all of my messes around the house.  This Ikea cart had become a dumping ground next to my longarm, so I emptied it out and put my rainbow of yarn in it next to my chair in the living room.  Then I worked on picking up my sewing room, and oh my, it's a great feeling to start a new week with a clean sewing room!  It gets the creative juices flowing for sure!

In case you're wondering about the blankets on my chair, the Ombre Trip Around the World quilt was a Craftsy kit that is no longer available, and the Eat Sleep Quilt cotton knit blanket is from the Fat Quarter Shop.  It's the perfect weight for cozying up on these colder days or putting on a layer in the summer when the A/C is just a tad too cold.

I started Lazy Waves two Sundays ago and right now it's about 24" x 72".  There are 16 colors, and the plan is to keep up the rainbow pattern as established, finishing the edges with white.  The size will be determined by the amount of yarn it uses up; this is entirely from my yarn stash, and I'm not buying any more for this project.

There's still time to make something for Christmas!  Get any Craftsy class for under $20 through tonight.

You can see what others are slow stitching today over at Kathy's Quilts.

Looks cozy and bright! Your chair looks welcoming! I can see why you want to crochet there. And as for a cleaned up sewing room, well who doesn't love that! I pick mine up when it starts bugging me, but every Friday is cleaning day and that includes the sewing room.

Very pretty! What a neat idea of using the cart. I need to pick up the house and by my recliner today. Enjoy your knitting.
