This week and last I’ve been busy working on a blanket for the husband ❤ And it amuses me to think that after I made my 1st granny square blanket I actually mentally swore off making another such big project for a long, long, looong time. And yet here I am. Proof that love conquers all. XD XD
I’m using a hybrid Alpaca-Viscose-Wool-Acrylic DK weight yarn in muted blue and red with a size 4 needle. I started out rather awkwardly since this is the largest size yarn & hook I’ve worked with so far but then became more comfortable as I went along.
The yarn has a nice feel to it – warm, gives good drape and has just that right amount of ‘pleasant roughness’ that’s not at all uncomfortable but is something you like to rub your skin against 🙂
I anticipate that the finished piece will have a bit of unevenness to its shape because I started out crocheting a huge square, stopped when I had the right width, and then continued on the 2 sides that would increase the length – hence, the candy shape allusion 😀
If I have enough yarn left, I’ll crochet a border to even it out. Although honestly, I don’t mind it though, it’s oddly endearing ❤ 🙄
And you, what lovely stuff are you creating? 🙂
