I haven’t totally forgotten about crocheting you know.
I just haven’t had chance to blog about it (bar my post about SIBOL and my first blanket).
I started this little bad boy days after the ex and I split up, I needed something to keep my hands busy and my mind off what I’d just done. There were plans for this blanket to actually be a ripple but those plans fell through when I realised I CAN’T RIPPLE.* Rather than give myself a brain aneurism about it I decided to put rippling aside and stick with what I knew. Heather’s lovely granny squares.
I set about like a mad woman, smoke was coming from my hook and I was like something obsessed. And soon I had lovely little piles of grannies all ready to be joined together.
And then I stalled.
(nothing like an impending deadline to kick you into action). So I have begun the joining up process. Life is pretty busy at the moment so I’m trying not to be too hard on myself and have set myself the task of joining just two rows together a night. And what do you know? It's now all joined together.
*I haven’t given up on the idea of rippling. I will re-commence efforts soon. And yes I’ve tried Lucy’s pattern and it was hers I was struggling with. I have strong suspicions this is a left-handed problem and I have plans to try and mess about and figure it out. I just don’t have time right now!
