I love crochet!

Ah! Crochet!
I do love to crochet!
I so badly want to start another ripple blanket...
...or another granny square blanket...
...or another granny stripe...
But I have this giant mixed stitch blanket to finish.
It's not that I don't love it, because I really do.
But it is big. Really big. Too big.
I started it as a bed blanket, to go on our double bed.
It is wide enough for a super-king!! I don't know HOW that happened!
Obviously my measuring skills need some work!
So I am plodding on, because I know if I start something else crocheted, that this massive blanket will get shoved behind the sofa again.
I will need to order another Lucy pack of stylecraft soon though!!
Hehe! Love yarn deliveries!


  1. haha!!! I'm terrible at measuring too. Your mixed stitch blanket is gorgeous!!!

  2. love your mixed stitched blanket. I heart <3 crochet too :)

  3. Oh all that time and effort, not to mention must keep going.
    It looks great, lots of interest in all the different stitches and colours.

    1. Thanks, I will keep going! Managed a couple more rows last night :)

  4. I love your blanket - please keep on it's just fab x

  5. Absolutely lovely! I'm using the special colour pack of Stylecraft DK on mine, too. It's a great combination for the mixed stripes. I need to get back to it. It isn't going to crochet itself!

  6. Hi, just popped over to your blog to have a look at your blanket, it looks so much like mine! I do love that stylecraft pack :)

  7. Maravillosa! me encanta la combinaciĆ³n de los colores, animo porque va a quedarte espectacular!
    un abrazo

  8. Ohhh. me too. I got mine on Monday....1.6KG of yarn. I haven't a clue what to do with it so I'll just look at it for a while :)
    I'm loving your blanket. I can fully comiserate with you on the temptation of starting a new project. You are obviously made of stronger stuff than me as I give in to temptation every time....then again I'm still sticking to my new years resolution of ' if I want to start a new project every day then I will!"
