Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Crafting withdrawal

So, on Friday night, I realised that I hadn’t done any crafting since last Sunday. Which was because my week had been crazy busy, but that’s still completely unacceptable! Then, I realised how late it was, and went to bed…

Saturday I got up, and really didn’t want to get on with the blanket (yes, I am well aware that it’ll hang over me until it’s done, but still… I’ll get to it this week. Scouts honour), so instead I started some Dorset button brooches I’m making as presents this year.

buttonThe first one wasn’t great, so I undid it and tried again

scrappy1I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve done so far. I’m thinking another two stripes (so the overall thing will be about twice the length) and it will be an excellent lap blanket for when I’m watching TV. One thing I’m now thinking of is the edging. I don’t want an icord edging, but it definitely needs something…hmm…maybe something crocheted? I’ll have a look at what’s on ravelry I guess. Any ideas?
