Finishing frenzy

Since finishing the epic project that was my ‘Wild Apple’ bohus cardigan (pause while I just remember that and feel all ‘glowy’) I have made a commitment to finishing off some of the huge pile of WIPs that seem to have accumulated.

I was able to put to bed a knitting project last week, but I’m can’t show you as it’s getting to That Time of Year and it is going to be a Christmas present.

Then I reached into the depths of my crochet drawers and pulled out the ‘Lily Pad CAL’. The actual Crochet ALong ended quite a while back (fail) but I was surprised to discover quite how far I had got along with it; there’s only three parts left to do. It’s a pattern for Stylecraft by Jane Crowfoot and is the cutest blanket ever; some of you may remember when I started it but I soon lost interest and it somehow got stuffed into the darkest depths of my hibernating projects pile.

When finished, it will just be a lap blanket (I know, what’s the use??) made up of squares and rectangles in lots of pinks, greens and teal. I’ll try not to get distracted…

    That is going to be pretty! Love the little flowers. As for what’s the use – well, if you don’t keep it for yourself, gift it to a nursing home – lap blankets are good things for people who sit a lot. Or to a homeless shelter – they can always use blankets that can go in baby carriages and strollers. 🙂
