sooooo you remember that i am a confessed obsessed knitter, right?
well it's true for crochet too. :)
yep. it's done! and i'm pretty happy. this will be what i'm teaching at the cloth castle next month. don't ya think it's pretty?
i ended up staying up very late last night... until 1am to finish it. like i said, i'm crazy when it comes with yarn. i forget to sleep. seriously. and i'll even choose to go with less sleep in favour of knitting or crocheting. see? insane. i don't know why i'm like that, but i am. and i probably always will be. haha.
anyhoo.. here are the deets on the blanket:
i based the pattern on the summer garden granny square by lucy of Attic24. the colour choice? well lucky me, as this is a store sample i was able to grab whatever i wanted. sweet, right? i know. so i grabbed them all.
this blanket is made up entirely of sirdar calico dk. an uber squishy and soft blend of cotton and acrylic. 60-40 blend.
and it took me a week. ridiculous. though to be honest, i did a lot of work on it daily. i pushed out this sample because it's a class i'll be teaching next month! so i wanted it up in the store for students to oogle over and fall madly in love with ;)
go ahead. love it.
i totally love the outcome.
any of you up until the wee hours of the morning because you just have to finish your project? or are you one of the smarty-pants who knows that getting sleep should be a priority too :) i'd love to hear what you're working on!
