I am wonderfully happily burried in my first really large crochet project at the moment. While it is crochet, I have to say it still feels like some kind of knitting to me... the fibre, the needle or in this case a hook, and the rhythm of each stitch. So I feel no guilt for sharing this story on this site.
I am in the process of making a blanket... which is a wonderfully medatative project, and as it is winter here in New Zealand, great for those cold evenings. Even the cat seems very happy to play a supporting role.
I was planning to do a classic Granny Square blanket until I was roaming around on the inter-web and found a blanket on purlbee.com which insprired me.
It inspired me so much that I pushed the little Granny squares back into the stash pile for later and set to on the Uber-Mega-Granny Square blanket.
It is based on a really simple repeating pattern and it is super fast to crochet which make it really satisfying to work on and easy to play with as the basic pattern is very forgiving. I have played with to colours to match my own interiors better but the idea is the same as the Purl Bee example.
Photos will be posted as soon as I have tied off.
