It’s done

I’ve decided. It’s done! No more.
I kept thinking that an extra round of green would be good, had actually planned to start it this evening. Then I saw it lying on the sofa this morning

It’s done. I’m sure now. It’s ready for tea and cookies and ‘the killing’ on SBS 2. I might have to turn the aircon on to warrent sitting with a blanket, but if that is what I have to do, that is what I have to do. At least for one night… just to test it.

It border ended up looking like this

… and the final blanket looks like this. Two months of work. It is definitely worth it.

  1. It looks fabulous! My mum wanted to teach me to crochet, but I’d growen up promising myself I was never going to be like her, so deliberately mucked up the lessons and gave up. Now of course I wish I’d learned, but with arthritis in both thumbs and carpal tunnel too, I don’t think I’d get very far. I even gave up knitting.

    • Ouch, arthritis in the thumbs – that is nasty.
      Crochet is – in my opinion – 100 times easier than knitting. But I’m not very good at knitting, keep dropping masks and counting wrong. Crochet is one mask at a time. I can handle that 😉

  2. I think it looks fabulous Signe! … And you have actually inspired me to learn to crochet – the one thing my Grandma never taught me. She did try, but I just couldn’t get it.
    I have my wool and hook and have started … Some picks when it’s a little larger 🙂

    • OK – you probably wont believe this, but I (re)learned to crochet from youtube! It is the BEST place for easy to understand tutorials. I sort of knew a little, but hadn’t done it for yonkers of years, so I decided to start from scratch! Through the first tutorials I got a little bored, but I found little things helpful – like how to hold the yarn to get the right tension.
      Personally I really like Bethintx1. I have learned just about everything I know from her. I found her tutorials really easy to follow and she is slow. And repeats things over and over and over. Which does not suit everyone. I liked it because I only had to pause the videos very rarely, which is nice, because it’s a bit annoying to have to let go of what you are doing to catch up with the crochet.
      The first lesson “How to crochet: lesson 1” is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVBnFHGbeK4
      Best beginners advice: use white or very light yarn. That way you can see what you are doing much easier.
      LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE PICTURES!!!
