18 months ago my lovely Mum, who is a brilliant knitter, but not a crocheter, told me she’d like a crochet blanket. I’d willingly agreed to make it before I established what she wanted… She asked for a lightweight (ie made from DK or thinner) blanket, double bed sized. I said ‘no problem’. What was I thinking? I am never monogamous with projects and therefore they take longer. I like new and different patterns to stimulate me and this is straightforward ripple… Plus EACH ROW takes 32 minutes at top speed. And I crochet faster than I knit. ARGH. But I’ve said I’ll make it and I want to finish, particularly as I feel a bit guilty as it’s the only thing Mum has ever asked me to make, so perhaps, like the sock KAL, I’d better commit to doing a little bit each night (for some reason it has always lived in my bedroom and is my bedtime project if I feel I need one…). I think I’m between a quarter and a third the way through it. I’ll try and remember to report on it in a month or so… Here it is.
