Alas, the official crochet blanket CAL by Notyouraveragecrochet has come to an end.
But will I be stopping here? Not on your Nelly! (I’ve never typed that phrase before!)
After making my blanket accidentally extraordinarily wide (as in it hangs down both sides of a king sized bed) I will be carrying on until Christmas.
Quite frankly I so enjoy the simplicity of each row; taking a break from an hour spent on something a bit more challenging. I shall quite miss it.
As the nights get a little cooler and I’m determined not to put the heating on for a good few weeks yet, my blanket keeps me warm as I crochet along.
I have even returned from work and found my daughter wrapped up in it.
In the past 17 weeks it has gone from this
My anti-craft, anti-colour husband-to-be keeps asking where exactly I intend to use it when it’s finished.
He is concerned it’ll clash with the deep browns, golds, bieges and greys of the house decor.
It’ll be folded across the arm of the settee so my daughter and I can wrap ourselves up in it in defiance.
I can feel another craft war on the horizon.
Love, Lucie xx
