Jacob's Ladder wip

I thought I'd update on the Jacob's Ladder afghan wip to replace my mom's lost one. I've done 10 cable sections - well, what will be cable sections when they're done. So far, as you can see I have green, yellow, claret, red, off white and am working on brown. I have two skeins of buff fleck and I think I will use that for the name sections.

This section is about 58 1/2" wide at this point. It will be less wide after the cables are made. It is about 27" in length but I'm not finished adding to it and also the name sections will add quite a bit to the finished ghan.

Just for reference, I am using an I hook.

More on that as I get more accomplished.

In other news, the other day I got curious about how long I've been a member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America). I wrote to them and the office was kind enough to check for me. They don't have a lot of paper records before 2004 but they did find a member list from 1996 that had my name on it, so I was a member since at least that year. Since the organization was founded (according to their Facebook page) in 1994, I was there during its early days. I was surprised, but pleased to find out I've had such a long association with this great organization.

Crochet Cabana has been around since 1997 so we are close in age to the national organization. :-)

Happy crocheting!

  1. Very cool, that you're an old timer...hehe, not in age mind you. Most interested to see this ghan take shape. Can't visual how the cables are going to go into the spaces. Interesting. Thanks for posting link to the picture of a similar ghan concerning the mitered squares, yours looks great, but seeing it makes me think doing that mine that way won't be very appealing, since it's all limited in color and the volume of the square/striping is small. Think it would be lost. Believe I'll go with the big 4.
