On my hook...

It's not that I don't like blankets. I just don't like how long they take. I have a blanket around here somewhere that I started 10 years ago. It is only 50% finished. I find baby blankets and lap blankets much more doable.

I recently spotted a lovely blanket on the Pinterest board of one of the bloggers I read. It was called Vintage Crochet Blanket and the pictures fascinated me. I found the pattern and did something I rarely do: I purchased a pattern for a single item.

I'm on row 6 of this beauty and it looks so much more complicated than it is.

  1. Blankets do take forever. I'm breaking personal records on one of my afghans right now and it's still taken me 2 months with most likely one more to go. I love, love, love that pattern. I've thought about making an afghan for my mother in that pattern. One day...
