Is this my last CAL post before Christmas? hmm… maybe. Have I finished my Crafty Resolution to make a blanket in a year? Nope, still a few to go. So why is this the last post before Christmas? Well, as obsessed as I am with crochet at the moment, I need to take a break to let other crafty projects take centre-stage.
I am not going to crochet any more square until I have finished knitting a special something for someone. Knitting on the way to and from work today added another 5mm to the project, so at the rate I’m going I will be pleased if I am finished in time to give it to the intended recipient.
The sacrifice needed to be a perfect relative means that, unfortunately for my blanket, I don’t think I will make the New Year’s Eve deadline. But the brainwave for my Crafty Resolution came while I was back at school, so therefore it isn’t cheating to extend the deadline to “I will finish my blanket before I go back to work in January.” So I can knit and craft my Christmas presents and then spend the holiday crocheting to finish my blanket. Perfect!
In the meantime you can enjoy the latest squares I have been making (a few repetitive blocks skipped out!)
