A Chapter of Accidents

Working under pressure is not a good thing – especially when the deadline has been set by yourself!

This blanket is a belated birthday present. It’s for a special person but was started late due to family circumstances. She has no idea that it’s coming – but I would like to finish it within six months of her birthday. I started to make it on 16th August. Progress has been slow, and it was with great rejoicing that I began to decrease and the rows became shorter ……

….. only to discover that I had made an error!

I had to unwind several rows and the increasing started again. Finally all is redone and I’m now on the ninth row after the corner.


I’ve tucked the crochet hook under the current row to show where I am. I probably won’t get much done today – my crafting time is very little at the moment.

Setting the scene

The preliminaries of the blog are done. Now I’m up to date, so this will be a commentary on my progress with maybe a few other bits thrown in as well.

My current project is a corner to corner blanket. I’ll give more details as I progress, but a quick resume will be added to the next post with very up to date photographs.

I have a deadline for this blanket – it’s approaching very quickly!
