…But I’m still Going 🙂 Today I was scrolling through Instagram posts and I saw someone has not only finished the Kalevala blanket, but is already finishing a third one! I’m just a little bit depressed by that 😀 But then again, I’m crocheting with my own handspun yarn, which I occasionally run out of and have to spin some more.
The whole process might seem a bit extensive, but it’s also very rewarding. I want this blanket to be as beautiful and warm as possible and I plan to treasure it for years to come.
I’ve also noticed that my skills are improving as I go – my hanspun yarn is now much more balanced and soft without breaking. I’ve learnt a lot of new stitches and I’m trying to learn from my mistakes. But let me tell you, I usually do at least one row do-over per 1 blanket square. It might be mostly because I pay only a limited attention to it, because I have a habit of watching TV when I crochet. It’s double the fun .)
I’ve finished several more blanket squares – the total count now is 15. That means 9 to go if I’m not mistaken. It’s getting to be quite a pile.
Have you ever crocheted a blanket before? Would you do it again? 😀
Do you remember how long it took you? 🙂
