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

Firstly, I have finished (and washed!) my housemate’s blanket. I absolutely love it, and don’t really want to give it away. *sigh* But I’m sure he’ll enjoy it, which is the important thing. And I think I have enough yarn left over to make me a scrappy crochet blanket. I’m thinking hexagon, because apparently my brain really likes hexagons. Ooh, I could do that mathematical half-hexagon thing. Hmm, that would involve quite a lot of sewing up, I think. I will think on that some more…

Tom5But now this has been finished, I really should get back to the alphabet blanket. *sigh*. It’s nearly finished, so it really could be quite a lot worse, but I don’t want to. I really want to start knitting Cockatoo Brae, but the blanket really should get done first…and if I save it, it would be a rather fun (and slightly stupid, given that it’s 4ply yarn) option for NaNo this year.

So at the moment ~I’m being fairly good, and I plan to continue embroidering the last few letters on the Dick Bruna blanket.

  1. What beautiful projects! I’ve always liked the look of the Attic24 blanket and yours is perfect. I can see why you don’t want to give it away! 😀

  2. That looks fabulous! Congrats on the finish 🙂

  3. Lovely colours, looks fantastic

  4. The blanket for your housemate is spectacular! I love that it looks like a log cabin quilt and the colors really sing!

  5. This is spectacular and I am full of admiration.
