Actually a FO and a WIP….
On September I participated the Spice of Life CAL and I loved it!
It was exactly what I needed at that time.
I made my blanket small. I wanted to have it on my feet to keep me warm while knitting and maybe (a gigantic maybe) use later it on a crib.
On that blanket I used my amigurumi stash yarns which are acrylics and, as you see, extremely colorful!
The idea of the CAL was to practice on new stitches.
Even though on some rows I ended up with much more stiches than supposed that makes my blanket saggy in the middle, I love to cuddle with it!
Now, remember when I told you that F’s soft spot is color?
Do you want to guess what he ask me to make him?
Not just any blanket.
A colorful blanket for when he falls asleep on the couch.
Have I told you that F is a tall guy? Almost 2 meters tall!
That means that his blanket could easily fit a double bed!
And that’s a lot of crocheting!
Luckily his demands didn’t include fancy stitches.
Half double crochets and every second row change the color.
Of course every time he chooses the following color 😉
It’s like living with a big baby!
I must admit though, it’s fun!
I love that he supports me and motivates me to crochet more!
(Putting aside the -I’m cold. When will my blanket finish?- part!)
This fabric magazine holder came very handy.
I put in there those big skeins and they unravel without me chasing them!
It even have pockets for my hook and scissors!
It was my sister’s Christmas gift! Great, right?
I’ll keep you posted on this project since it will take a while until becoming a FO!
Have a great weekend everyone!
