I may have over-used the exclammation mark in my title there, but I've noticed I tend to do that in lots of my Posts, however I am thrilled to be revealing my first Ta-Dah moment.
The long awaited Crochet Blanket #2 with all it's holey glory. Apologies, that I am not a very skillful or arty/creative photographer, so these photos aren't all that stylish.
It all started back here in April and it is called Blanket No 2, because it was the 2nd one I started, although it's the first one I have finished.
|Just a very long strip|
It was probably too big a project for my first ever crochet make, but it seems I can't do anything the easy way. It grew very slowly.
My blanket and I had some difficult moments along the way, especially regarding the holes. Can someone tell me, do I absolutely have to do turning chains at the edges?
However, we made friends again thanks to Fostermummy and the frilly edge is definitely a distraction.
This is it laid out fully on a bed, again apologies it doesn't exactly go with my colour scheme, but it is designed to suit a friends house.I timed myself at one point and a row took me 35 mintues to complete. There are 190 rows in the blanket so that makes 111 hours of work, plus crocheting around the complete blanket 4 times, so maybe another 10 or so hours.
and so my first Ta-dah moment is complete.... and yet, now it has come to the end, I find I can't quite put my blanket away and move on. I'm missing working on it already.
There's only one solution, start another blanket, yay!!!!
Lots of Love Arwedd xx
