This month we were away for a week at Center Parcs, and I made the decision to leave my crochet at home, knowing that it wouldn't take me too long to catch up when I got back. I really missed it while I was away though, and I did start to regret having left it! So instead of crafting I used my spare time during the week to write in my Travel Listography book, making lists about places that I've visited and places that I'd love to go to. It's filling up nicely now, and it was fun to spend some time reminiscing about the fun that we've had travelling in the past.
I caught up with my Sky Blanket (link to update post) the day that we god home, and it's looking good now. I've been a little bolder and included some slightly different stitches to represent wind and snow, and continued adding a few extra bits of ribbon and button to portray things that I've seen in the sky.
It's also starting to look a little more like a blanket now that we've reached the end of February. It's not very wide, but I can see that it's going to be nice and long when it's finished!
I'm also getting on extremely well with my other crochet blanket project - my granny square blanket. These last steps have been a bit of a slog. My decision to make a wider border seemed like a good idea at the time, but each round took ages, and I also had problems with the border curling up so I tried various different ways to stop it, decreasing stitches at various points and turning the work back on itself.
I'm very excited to have finally started work on the last row! I'm attempting a scalloped edge which I think is working out really well and will finish the blanket off nicely. There will definitely be a ta-da blog post when it's finished!
Then I have another crochet project to work on - a pink crochet bunting pack designed by Attic24. I'm looking forward to having a go with the kit and hope that I can work it out, and I'm hoping that Mia will want the bunting for her bedroom when it's finished.
