About two weeks ago, I finally finished this blanket I had started Mother's day weekend. I had all the squares done in very short period of time, about 2-3 weeks. When I was done crocheting, them, though, I realized, yet again how much I hate sewing. I don't know why I have this aversion...It might have something to do with my hair brained efforts to make each of my member of my massive family a pair of machine sewn flannel pajama pants last year!
Anyway, I have finished this lovely blanket now. I notice all the little imperfections in a way that no one else does, but all in all, I am really happy with it. This was my first "intermediate" crochet project, and it is just so crazy to look at where I was last September-ish and see all that I have learned since then. I am so happy to have a skill I will carry with me for lifetime.
I made it to match my living room, and it ended up looking great with my dark blue furniture. Eventually, my fiance and I will get new, non-hand-me-down furniture, and I would like something a little more inviting...We just might have to make sure this blanket is the inspiration, though. ;o)
