A new year brings with it a lot of unfinished projects and even worse lots of new wool bought at loop tempting me to start some more. I found myself hugging the new wool again this morning, it is so soft and beautiful. But I am being strong, no new projects until I have at least made the effort to finish my largest project ever!
As you remember two years ago we decided to make an afghan crochet blanket. I am not sure either of us really realized what this would entail and how much time this would take. Determined to move forward I packed all my squares in my suitcase and dragged them all the way to England.
It was there that I found that they were in fact children nectar. One two year old so enamored with one of my squares refused to let it go. At least I know there are one or two small people who might like my blanket. Still even with all the lugging and intentions, I only managed to join about three squares. So I packed everything back up and now, back home, with the new year underway and the renewed enthusiasm it brings I am making more headway.
I hope I get it finished soon, I have some lovely socks I want to make and I am really excited to try some fair isle patterns.
Lots of Love
