I’m well known for having too many projects on the go so I’ve decided that I really must finish off as many as I can before starting any new (haha, famous last words!!)
I took crochet lessons at a local wool shop two years ago. Armed with a beginners knowledge of basic stitches I then made a nest of colourful baskets and also started “a winter project”, a granny square blanket for our campervan. Over two winters I have made 144 little squares, sewed them all together, tied in all the ends (insert crying emoji here) and added two or three rows of border.
This has really been a mammoth task and although I love the finished blanket, I am in no hurry to start another. I am very slow at crochet and lack the confidence to look away from the hook at any point, and I found the sheer size of the blanket weighed me down in more ways than one (even though it could probably have been larger – one of us is going to feel a slight draught in the camper!!)
I finished off the border with these adorable pompoms.
Does anyone remember making pompoms at school? We used to cut out two cardboard circles with a hole in the middle, sandwich them together and wind the wool round and round. Well not much has changed except there is now a little plastic gadget that doesn’t bend or disintegrate after one pompom. Genius.
Looks like it has my cat’s approval.
