Update about my blanket-to-be !!!!

I don't know when I'm going to finish it….





….but I'm going on crocheting, slowly but with an encouraging enthusiasm….
It's the typical project that it's a pleasure to enjoy in the evenings, sitting on your favourite sofa with the rest of your family just next to you (even the cat, with which I "fight" a lot for "blanket possession")…
You cannot carry it around with you (I mean outside the home!)…. too big and heavy!!!! ;oD
My yarn stash is consumed little by little…. I'm not buying yarn for this blanket and when a colour is out of stock (my personal stock!) I just pick a "new" one from one of my drawers…. easy peasy…



….. Maybe one day I'll start to weave in the million ends or maybe not…. still thinking about the way I'll end my first blanket… still a lot of time, so a deep breathe and patience : enjoy the journey!!!


…. and in the meantime I really love this huge and warm yarn hug….

  10. Hello Alessandra!
    I love your blanket! Beautiful colours too! I have started on a blanket too: two Dutch bloggers have translated a pattern for crocheters that can not read English. They give out a part of the pattern every week: it is called a Crochet Along (CAL) and because they share on facebook too, more than 2000 (!) people are already joining in. Amazing, don't you think? I thought it would be something you would like (not the CAL, but the pattern, in English, from the original blog...)
    Here is the link, so you can check it out: http://www.littlewoollie.blogspot.com
    I hope you like the idea!
