It is much bigger than the first square I made. I’m not really fussed about that though. I’ll just hook up the squares as they come and then when they’re all made I’ll make some more, add rows to some, perhaps strip back others… I’ll make ‘em fit into an afghan somehow. I’m enjoying the organic way in which this afghan will come together - I have no idea what is to come. An exercise in having fun with colour and letting what will be … be.
Balancing the colour and randomness of the crochet along is my planned winter project. I bought the yarn at the last BWM end of year sale and finally the weather is getting cool enough to inspire me to start hooking.
I’m undertaking to make an afghan for my bed. Yep. Something for me and my dearest love to snuggle under. The intention is to hook it this winter so that it will be ready for the next.
It will be known as “The White Blanket”, but with any luck it won’t prove to be divisive like the Beatle’s White Album was. In my imagination it will be singular in colour but varied in stitches, techniques and patterns. In my dreams my love and I will snuggle and cuddle under the weight of the love that will stitched and woven into the yarny fibres. In my hopes the children won’t get it too grubby when they jump into bed early in the mornings.
It is grey and rainy here today – perfect hooky weather. Time to delve into the bag and start hooking.
Have you started any new projects lately?
Got a special project planned for the winter months?
Will you be hooking today???
