Trust all is well in your lil patch under the sun? Today is a very happy day for me , I have f inished my first crochet blanket .... which I talked about earlier here? I have done so many small projects for family and friends but never thought I could do a blanket. I am always awestruck by fellow crocheters churning out blanket after blanket with untiring zeal....let me hope this is the first of many for me!
When I first saw this blanket , I was smitten!! I just wanted to make it 432 small squares not withstanding!! It feel like a great accomplishment especially as its my first!! I did not use the specified yarn as I would not have the heart to use it, and whats a blanket for if the kids cant play with it and wrap themselves up in it? So I ended up using Stylecraft dk in various shades and am very happy with th result especially as it can be washed in the machine with no repercussions whatsoever. Whats not to love?
My lil boy has been so helpful with all the counting , combinations and egging me on, thanks sweetheart!! I am so glad I made this blankie for another bi........g reason. I have gained a lovely, lovely friend in Vanessa of cocorose textiles blog fame., make a blankie and a friend for life,good bargain,huh? Thank you , V!!
I am going away to India after nearly two years...I will have access to the net for most of my trip so will be able to blog about my adventures back home. I hope to be able to finish some small projects while away for family.. I am the only crocheter in the family,you see...so will have to live upto expectations!! :):) Any suggestions welcome!
Since I started blogging, I feel like I have widened my horizons and made so many friends who I feel I have known for ever,quite an amazing feeling..I am sure you lovely people would agree with!! A toast to all friendships made and those that are still to be made!
I have a teeny request...please please do leave a word or two on this post about my first blankie,it would really mean the world to me and spur me onto make more and follow in the footsteps of all you seasoned and fabulous crocheters!!
Toodle pip for now, will be back soon.
