    Talking C2C Start of my Afghan and Curly Scarf

    I have started a Corner to Corner (C2C) afghan using cotton yarns in many different colors. The knitted afghan I made with cotton yarns came out so comfy that I decided to make a crocheted one for myself. I also finished up a curly scarf for a little girl.

    I want to make the corner to corner afghan really bad. Too hot to have it in my lap now- hopefully when cooler weather gets here. Bought a LOT of 6 or 8 sided afghan 'squares' from a lady that the maker died before she put them together and want to do that this winter also. Got all of them for 10 dollars- the lady just wanted them to have a good home. Enough of them for a queen size afghan. They have a small puff flower in center surrounded with a complimentary color edged in white. Nothing fancy but they are pretty.

    Magnolia Blossom: Could you use the cotton yarn like carynjoyb did for her afghans and scarf to make things for the little girls? I honestly only thought about using it for washcloths but why not for little outfits? It would certainly be cooler than acrylics? Just a thought! Shirley

    Boy Susan, did you score with that? Yeah!!! I am going to get some too and try it.

    Carynjob: I bet my granddaughter would like a scarf out of the cotton yarn much better than the acrylic and it would not itch her!

    Hi Shirley,
    Yes, the cotton would be much more comfy for her. There are other wonderful cotton brands on the market these days. Some are as soft as silk. There are cotton and bamboo combinations that are wonderful.
