DH Karl enjoyed it during his visit home for Christmas.
After that was done, I thought I had the crochet bug out of my system, but I was wrong. It was stronger than ever. So I looked through the "200 crochet block" book and found this simple, single crochet square, which appealed to me at once.
I choose 4 colores and came up with 4 different ways to crochet the squares.
pattern: square # 109, square # 29 for the border, "200 crochet blocks" by Jan Eaton
yarn: Pervian Collecton Highland Wool from elann, 26 balls total
size: 49" square
start-finish: December 3 - 31
It took me about 70 hours to finish this blanket. I love it.
That leaves me only with one more thing, and than I'm all caught up: These pictures have been waiting for quite some time, to get their turn.
This handspun yarn is made with 4oz of Corriedale, and 4oz of Norwegian fiber, which I dyed myself. It's a total of 936yds, 2-ply in very fine fingering weight. I never considered this project to be done, because I wanted to spin a lavender colored fiber to go with it, but never got to it. I still intend to do this, but god knows when.
