In a bid to finish some projects in order to justify starting something new I have made myself finish the Sample Blanket. I started this in a bid to learn to crochet and it has been successful in achieving that goal. I am fairly confident on most of the basic stitches now so the next step will be to master shaping.
The blanket is more of a lap blanket as I ran out of enough wool to do any more rounds of squares. I didn’t have any instructions for finishing off the blanket as I unsubscribed from the magazine too early but I decided that I should use the wool I did have to do some rounds of double crochet and I am so pleased I made this decision as it has really bought the blanket together not only strengthening the edges but also making it look more finished.
I am also planning to finish some other non-crochet projects over the next week such as my eldest’s pyjama bottoms and making some tapestries into cushion covers – I have a new embroidery kit which I am desperate to start so this should motivate me.
