You know how I mentioned that I had two large blanket WiPs? Well, I currently have no large blanket WiPs!
Behold! One completed Pick ‘n’ Mix blanket, by Lucy Croft, which was a year long CAL with Simply Crochet and had been sitting, half joined up in a bag for *mumblemumble*. That one is single bed sized and made up of 12 squares in two different colourways. I used Stylecraft Special Aran and really enjoyed working through the squares as they came out.
The other is the Hydrangea blanket by Lucy at Attic24 but using the Stylecraft Special DK colour pack for the Moorland blanket. This was a request from my mother and it has come out slightly smaller than double bed sized. I basically picked the colours at random but tried not to repeat any very close to the previous stripe. Also one that got fitfully worked on but the combination of not wanting to pack it up in a WiP state and seeing my mother earlier this month meant it became my At Home project. And then once I finished that, I had to apply the same moving logic to the Pick ‘n’ Mix and suddenly they were both pretty much done.
I have also finished my Keith Moon sweater (oh the icord, the endless, endless icord) but it is still blocking at the moment. Endlessly blocking.
But now that I have finished all the big pre-packing WiPs, I have to start the packing, I guess!
