I really do seem to have gone a bit blanket crazy, even after spending nearly two years completing my Owl and Flower Granny blanket.
(Yes, it’s finished and is blocking at the moment.) I did crochet this sampler blanket for Abi’s bed during those two years as well, so I did have a little bit of an excuse!
So, why blanket crazy? Well, I have a few other blanket waiting their turn!
No 1 – I have this yarn for a blanket for Josh’s bed, deadline? … hopefully his birthday which is in November (not sure which year yet 😉 )
I have an idea in my head for the pattern. I want it to be something rippled or wavy, something to remind you of the sea. I have pinned several ideas and thought that maybe I would do some trial ripples in dishcloth cotton so that I can use them afterwards.
No 2 – I have also just started a baby blanket using this pattern.
It was one of those spur of the moment things. Two of my sisters-in-law are expecting babies so if I do one in girly and one in boyish colours at least one of them will get a blanket!
I really like the way it is looking so far and the circular ripple is surprisingly easy to do even when tired!
No 3 – I have talked about my Dahlia blanket before and I have some lovely squishy soft yarn but I am thinking this may have to a project for next spring all being well. I love the colours so much and it is probably my favourite but the others need to take priority.
No 4 – Lastly there is another new blanket idea and that is to make a blanket for this moon chair. (Josh curled up in it on my birthday morning)
Hubby gave it to me for my birthday. He thought it was a great size and shape for me to use sitting on the beach with my crochet. It is, in fact it so comfy and ideal for crochet that I have left it up in our lounge where it clashes horribly with the rest of the decor. Solution?…another blanket. I have purchased some more yarn in yellow, rust and green to tie in with the owl and flower blanket and I am thinking of making a round spiral blanket this time.
Phew, not quite sure when it will all get done but hopefully not two years a blanket!
Onto my quickly expanding wips list …
2 Owl and flower granny square cushions (there were squares left over)
1 baby blanket
1 crochet scarf for my Sister – just the border to go.
1 Edwards menagerie bunny for my cousin’s baby
1 knitted budgie as Joshs’ April stocking pressie (2 more after that if I don’t give up with the knitting!!!)
8 mice/bunny PJ cases
1 stocking pressie for Abi (Hopefully I’ll get it done by the end of the month) more soon
1 market bag
and some spinning. (I am about 1/4 of the way through a new colour and then I hope to ply the two together.
Actually, looking at the list, it is not as bad as I thought. Lots more ideas buzzing in my head though!!
Hopefully back soon with the blanket Tada.
