This week has been wet and cold. Terrible for drying clothes but perfect for knitting and sewing. A few months ago Spotlight released a pattern for a textured throw blanket. There were two squares a week released. The first block was a simple garter stitch and by week 24 I had to resort to YouTube to help me out.
So after a few months I finally finished all the squares, blocked them, and then learnt how to crochet them together. It was a great project which I mostly worked on while sitting in the car watching my son play football. I figured with the purple and pinks in the throw, I would leave it in the car as an emergency blanket. The boys of the family wouldn't be interested in snuggling up on the couch with it. I was wrong. It has proved to be a much loved blanket with one particular child calling it HIS knitting blanket.
