I have two main projects I have been working on lately. The first is the Mickey ornament that is taking a lot longer than I expected. I think part of it is the half crosses.
I have also been working on a flag afghan. It is worked in Lion Brand's Heartland Yarn which is very soft and nice to work with. It has a ripple pattern that is caused by alternating 3dctog with clusters of 3 dc. It is not really hard after you get off the foundation chain (which had like 200 stitches so it was really long to be working). I followed some advice that I found on a crochet blog and I worked the foundation chain in the spine of the chain and it does give the bottom a nicer edge. A lot of patterns say not to work it this way but I am not sure why.
