My other crochet projects are much less selfless than the Knit for Peace that I’m involved in. In fact, they’re entirely selfish, but I don’t feel the need to rectify this just yet.
So far, I have two blanket projects on the go, one that has been ongoing for a few months and another that I have just started because I simply couldn’t handle the marshamallowy pastelly rainbowy delight that is IceYarns’ Double Knit Magic Light in Yellow Purple Pink Green Blue being balled up in my yarn stash – it had to come out NOW. For this blanket (the making of which is pictured left), I plan on keeping it very simple since I think the colours speak for themselves, so I shall just continue with the solid granny square style until I have the little modules-of-joy spewing out of my ears before joining them together with some black yarn for a bit of drama.
My first blanket is a little more ambitious, and a lot more messy – I am the first to
admit I’m not especially accurate with my stitch count and if it doesn’t fit naturally then I shall bloomin’ well make it! I’ve used a much darker, autumnal palette of Aran Knit yarns and some lovely WI brand wool, and am making twenty-five 3×3 modules of traditional granny squares with a sunburst granny square in the centre of each. I am so looking forward to finishing this afghan, I think it’s going to be a little bit special even if I do say so myself.
