Mixed stitch blanket update

2012 is almost over!
I have loved reading about all the fab projects that have been completed during the year. It has made me realise that I really want to be able to do a 'projects I completed in 2013' post next year. I can't do one this year because I just haven't been taking enough photos! I also have no idea when a lot of my projects were started and finished. But that is all going to change in 2013! I'm going to make more time for crafting, and make sure I keep a record (and photos) of all my projects.
So, over the next week or so I WILL blog about the projects I have on the go already. I will take photos as they progress. And I will make sure that they get ta-dah posts when they are finished.
Today is all about my mixed stitch blanket. My first crochet-along, with little woollie. I do know when I started this one! I put it on Ravelry! It was 24th August, so has been on the go for 4 months. And I have to say, looking at it now, that it is not much of a blanket! To be fair I have worked on a lot of other projects at the same time, and the blanket was pretty much shoved into a corner in October to make way for Christmas crafting. But it is back out, and I am loving it :)
So here it is, my mixed stitch stripey blanket.

Wishing you all a happy, and crafty, New Year!


  1. It is good that crochet waits patiently in that bag behind the sofa, any unravelling can be easily recovered! It looks great, can't wait to see the progress now. Fiona PS Happy New Year!

  2. Oh, I so know how it goes with small projects in between. But somehow these kind of blankets still will be finished. And yours will look stunning!

  3. Karen, your blanket is stunning. It has such an autumn feel to it in its colours. It's a fabulous project to have in the background of all the others, isn't it? Happy New Year!!

  4. I love this so much but I must not start anything new now! At least taking photos of woolly loveliness is an enjoyable New Year's resolution.
