The other day I realized that it's been well over a couple years since I've had a new blanket to put on my bed or fold up on the couch despite the fact I've been crocheting and working on blankets the whole time! I decided it was time to correct this. It was time to pick a project and stick to it until finish..... Easier said than done...
These are just a few of my unfinished projects, mostly blankets
|Pink hexes, knitted blue squares and green pinwheels|
|Aran Patchwork: green one and off-white one|
|Pink baby blankets|
|Soft ripple afghan and green afghan (started but then taken appart)|
Then there are my 3 large blankets that I work on more than the others:
|One piece blue wool-eater|
This is the one I'm currently endeavoring to focus on. I started it about a year or two ago when I first discovered the wool-eater pattern. I wanted to make one piece blanket with the pattern which of course would mean it would be square and so decided it would be for a king-sized bed. Besides, big blankets always seem so much cozier. I'm now at the point where one big skein of yarn doesn't always make it to the end of the round so I need to buy two skeins per round. This pattern takes up A LOT of yarn (I can only assume that's why it's called the "wool-eater" pattern) but I think it will pay off big time on chilly fall and winter nights when you need nice heavy weight blankets to curl up under to stay warm :D

Oh and let's not forget the partially done Christmas projects. I suspect these to grow this year as I have several new Christmas projects I want to start and attempt to finish for the Christmas season.
