Well, now I have made these!
Nine whole squares! Okay, so they probably wouldn't withstand too close an inspection from the crochet police, but I think they're pretty good. A king size blanket is out of the question - I would have to give up work, or eating. or sleeping, or pretty much anything else and just crochet until I was 489 and still not finish it. But I have a throw that I measured these against, and by my estimation I would need over 200 to reach that size. Still very daunting. But we'll see. For now, I'm just going to concentrate on making a square when the mood takes me. And if all I end up with is a cushion cover, then so be it.
I also felt spurred on by my knitting fit...
book that I'd bought for a friend, and came across the pattern as I was flicking through it. It really is a lovely book.
I got the lovely shiny buttons in a really fab shop that I need to blog about another time. But now, we are getting on with it in the house of noknittedknickers. We are washing...
A lovely holiday, now over.
Hope you have a good week.
