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

Crochet Blanket

So, I started getting a little bored of the Dick Bruna blanket, and decided to have a little fun, and break out the new yarn πŸ™‚

A while ago, I decided I wanted to crochet a blanket for my housemate’s birthday (it’s his 21st), which, naturally necessitated a trawl through ravelry. For a while, I was taken by this one, but then decided to go with attic24s latest, a log cabin blanket, after I looked up a bit of the history (they used to be given to children when they flew the nest, so it makes perfect sense to make it for him!) So I ordered the yarn, and it sat around for a while because I was being good and trying to get the Dick Bruna one out of the way, and then the other day I decided I’d had enough and I was going to start crocheting damn it!

I piled all my lovely yarn in a crate, because it needs to be contained somehow and I need to be able to cover it in something until the housemate leaves on Sunday! It’s all so pretty!

TomAnd so naturally I had to immediately start crocheting πŸ™‚

Tom1I think it’s pretty darn adorable πŸ˜€ So far I have 4 finished, so I’d better get back to it now…or not actually, the housemate’s come home. It feels rather strange having a secret project again πŸ™‚

  1. I hadn’t seen that blanket on Attic24. It’s lovely and I’m so tempted to get the yarn for it now that I’ve seen yours all piled up in the crate πŸ˜‰
    I shall enjoy watching your blanket take shape.

  2. Ooh, a male who appreciates a crocheted blanket – a rare but wonderful species!

  3. wow.. Mandala Geometric Crochet Blanket looks like a majestic project.. πŸ™‚ can’t wait to see you start it. πŸ˜‰
