Cozy blankie time
My childhood friend Heather, who just started her first blog, Cabernet Sauvinyarn, inspired me with a recent post and now I've started my first-ever crocheted afghan. Above you can see my progress. It's nothing fancy, but for a first try I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out. Ian complained, sarcastically, that I'm being selfish by only making it as wide as I can reach. He claims all of the blankets in the house are made for me and there is only one that's actually long enough and wide enough to keep him covered. I figure, he can either keep complaining, buy himself a tall-person blanket or crochet his own, because this little blankie is all mine! Or it will be when it's finished anyway.
I'm planning on make some good progress on it tomorrow while I'm at the craft fair selling my hair clips. That is of course if Mother Nature stops with all the rain. Today there's supposed to be a full-blown storm. I gotta say, I'm getting sick of this business. I was woken up half a dozen times by booming thunder the other night. It's just plain unpleasant. If you could all do a reverse rain dance for me, that'd be awesome. Thanks a bunch!
Have you ever knit or crocheted a blanket?
