Sundays are made for crochet blankets

This weekend has been nice, quiet and cosy. Sunday afternoon walk with Moss, wet and muddy and needing a hot bath (Moss not me) then watching a film cuddled up under hand made crochet blankets. Mind kind of Sunday and it's lovely to get so much use out of all the hours I spent making the blankets. My first one was made after I bought my first crochet book called Crochet Workshop by Erika Knight (for a bargain £5) I was never happy with the blanket and hid it away. I was new to crochet then and had an odd way of doing the stitches and then one day I had a light bulb moment and I realised I'd been doing it slightly cack handed. But today I snuggled under that blanket and fell asleep, so it was warm and fit or the purpose and I made it, imperfections and all :-)

There is nothing like a crochet blanket/throw on a cold wet day.

I suspect the majority of my crafting is cackhanded, but yes Sunday's are definitely days to be crafting! x

Your blanket looks wonderful to me!! I have been told be several people that I "don't crochet properly", I don't think it really matters as long as you are happy with it! xx

Hi Amanda. I've been reading for a while but haven't commented. Just wanted to say that I love the colours in your first blanket! They're very inspiring- and those tight corners are very impressive! My first granny was an obvious first attempt! Although I'm right-handed, i was taught to crochet by a left-handed friend, and now my left-handed work is described by all my crochet comrades as kak handed! They may be right- I started a v-stitch blanket at the weekend and so far it's been ripped back twice...
