Just a quick post this morning to show you my newly started project. My "me" project :-)
I am very excited to be joining my first crochet-a-long, the beautiful mixed stitch stripey blanket from one of my favourite blogs Little Woolie
I had a little dither about how wide to make it and in the end decided to throw myself full force into this project and chained 390, which I'm hoping will cover our bed. Yay!!! Snuggly blanky all for me!!!
So here is what I have so far. 5 rows of htr. I'm using Stylecraft DK as I love working with it - and it's not too expensive so I don't mind Henry sleeping on it! That cat does like a blanket!!!
I'm loving it so far, although those long rows do take a while!!! A whole evening to work only 5 rows?!?! haha. Very excited about the next few rows, grannies and some wiggles :-) and then I have to wait and see what comes next! Oooh! The excitement of a mystery crochet-a-long!
