ScrapHappy Afghan part 3

Hi everyone -- and I hope you are all staying well. Living in Seattle we've been pretty staying close to home, which means I've had extra time for crafting. Looking for a silver lining here...

It's time for the monthly ScrapHappy Day check-in, where a group of crafters show off the projects they're making from scraps. I had a bunch of extra yarn from the temperature afghan I made in 2018, so I'm making a  stained glass afghan in greyscale. And I LOVE how it looks!

Here's where I was a month ago:

I had done one full color pass and started on a second one. Now, a month later, I've done more than half of the second color pass:

The colors look a little funny in my dimly lit bedroom, but I love how they look in real life, and I'm so happy with how the afghan is growing. On the first pass I ran out of one color, and so far in this one I have nearly run out of another. I look forward to seeing how this changes the pattern, as there are fewer colors in the mix!

ScrapHappy Day is organized by Kate and Gun, so if you're interested in participating please see their blogs. And my fellow ScrapHappy Stitchers are super creative, visit their blogs to see how they're using up some of their scraps.

Kate, Gun, Titti, Heléne, Eva, Sue, Nanette, Lynn, Lynda, Birthe, Turid, Susan, Cathy, Debbierose, Tracy, Jill, Claire, Jan, Moira, Sandra, Linda, Chris, Nancy, Alys, Kerry, Claire, Jean, Joanne, Jon, Hayley, Dawn, Gwen, Connie, Bekki, Pauline, and Sue L.

Our next check in is on April 15; I hope to be finished with this color pass by then!


  1. I love the way the colour banding creates an almost 3D effect. It looks almost like the skin of a very beautiful snake...

    1. Thanks Kate! It has been such a joy to see how the colors work together ... and it's a nice simple stitch to do!

  2. At least you should have plenty of time in which to run out of more colors! I feel like saying to everyone, "Welcome to MY world!" We've made next to no changes in our lifestyle so far. Just tried to stock up on some food items we would normally replace. Amazing how one tiny bug can shut down the world eh?

    1. Indeed, Sue, indeed. I hope you and yours are staying well!
