A couple of days ago I actually finished a crochet project 😮 I have sooo many unfinished WIPs hanging around here it is shameful. But for once I actually picked up something I thought I would never complete and made myself get on with it. To be honest I didn’t even really like it until it was finished.
Towards the end of my pregnancy I had wanted something easy to do that didn’t require any brain power on my part… I didn’t have much to spare! I decided to start a small blanket using up the odd bits and balls of Stylecraft Special DK I had hanging around. I grabbed any colours that could be deemed ‘boyish’ and chose the neat ripple pattern from Attic24.
Random. Ripply. Relaxing.
Of course a few stripes in my little man made his appearance and it has been sat in a basket going on 4 months. So last week, needing to get my cro-mojo back, I set to it once more. I really was not happy with these colours together for a long time, but having finished it, bordered it and put it to use I really quite like it’s slightly vintage/retro vibe.
It is only small but just enough for a travel blanket for the pushchair or car seat. It measures around 25″x31″. For those interested in the colour shades they are Aster, Spring Green, Spice, Turquoise, Mocha, Aspen and Gold.
Yay! Now I feel less guilty to start something new… and leave all the other unfinished projects just a little while longer…. 😉
