Ive been a little undecided about what WIP to pick up now that the block stitch blanket is done and in the interim I have gone back to an old faithful cotton 8, crochet crush kit blanket. I started this blanket at the beginning of 2014 with a very clear idea of the pattern and look of the finished article.
Very early on it didn't look like the idea in my head! And I found that frustrating and annoying.
I started with 9 granny squares joined to form a square and then continued with granny rounds to form a large square. It wasn't going to be a conventional single bed blanket but more of a keep your feet warm type bed cover. I figued out early on that I wasn't going to have enough yarn (as I didn't choose the add on kit) to make anything of any substantial size. So I ordered more of the dark purple and some white cotton and set about changing the style. I added a row of grannies to two ends of my square changing the shape to a rectangle.
By this time I had fallen out of love with this project and wasn't interested in finishing it, but I kept picking it up when I was in between projects or needed a no thinking project to take to a BBQ or afternoon tea.
But today, today I have found some inspiration for this little single bed blanket that I am actually excited about finishing it and getting it on the bed ready for a winter visitor.
