Remember this?

One of the first posts that I wrote when I started my humble blog was about a crocheted Navajo Blanket I was in the process of making using a pattern from the book 'Crocheted Throws and Wraps' by 'Melody Griffiths'.  I posted a photograph of the centre of the blanket which was all stitched together ready for some more squares and triangles to be added.  I thought you might be wondering what had happened to it.  Well, the centre is still waiting for some more squares to be added!!


I have made some progress and lots of triangles and squares of different combinations of colours have been made but, I have also hit a problem.


One of the balls of cream wool I bought was a different shade to the rest.  It was whiter than the others.  At first I didn't think it would matter but, when I started adding the next round of squares to the centre block, I wasn't happy.  This resulted in me pulling it all to pieces to start again.  In the process, I lost some of the squares I had already made. Now I need to go and buy some more wool but I don't know when I will get to the wool shop!!  Just thought you might like an update!

  1. Oh dear! It is a pain when you have to start again - but sometimes it turns out better than it would have originally!
