I've finished a blanket I started nearly two years ago!!
Now that's what I call Crochet Excitement.
Well, not very 'wee' actually - it's the size of a double bed.
There's always a possibility when I take so long to make something that my tastes would change in that time.... (they are ever evolving...), but not in this instance.
I have Blanket Love.
In this crazy (but wonderful!) heatwave we are experiencing I can't think of anything worse than having my knees warmed under a woollen blanket, but come the long cold days of the northern hemisphere winter this not-so-wee beauty will be given much love and appreciation. (And no doubt have porridge/sandwich/spaghetti/hot chocolate faces and hands rubbed into the lovingly crafted stitches....*sigh*)
I still have to tie in all the loose threads on the underside - which will probably take me another two years, but hey - am I bovered? Nope.
I do love this feeling of achievement upon completion of a project. It's quite addictive...
