This week I have mainly been crocheting squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL. I have now reached the heady heights of 21 completed squares! Only 15 to go!
Yesterday, part 2 of the CAL came out (a triangle), and I’ve done a couple to see what they’re like. I will go back to squares now and finish them all before I get going in earnest with the triangles.
The other day my daughter and I were commenting that our leather sofa is cold when you first sit on it, and saying we should have a blanket over it. We already snuggle ourselves with crochet blankets on cold evenings, but we don’t have one big enough to cover the sofa. As I’ve recently had a yarn sort-out, I was aware of how many small balls of yarn I have, so I decided that I will make a simple granny square style blanket from random small balls or leftover bits of yarn.
So far it looks more like a scarf, but it’s growing. I work on this when I need a break from thinking as it’s very simple to do. It’s a world away from the complex and elegant Kaleidoscope blanket, but is perfect for brightening up and warming our sofa. A blanket that I won’t want to save for special occasions, that will be practical and fun 🙂
