I admit when it comes to finishing UFOs, I am lame. Items sit on my side bar for up to a year collecting dust. They also sit in my UFO pile taking up space. Let me tell, one big one is gone from that pile and now kickin' it with the rest of my blankets. Toot toot..goes my horn!
Something got in to me this week and I decided I will finish this blanket if it kills me (insert drama here). I powered through the remaining 9 hexis that I need to, whip-stitched, and wove in ends within the last four days. Kind of feels the shower you take after camping all weekend.
Since it has been a while since I crocheted this much, the ibprofen bottle is now empty. That does not take away from the fact that this was a wonderful project to crochet. Disregard that it took me over a year to finish it, not the pattern's fault, but mine.
I know I will never be the queen of blanket like Miss C, but with this project completed I feel like royalty.
Now how about the details?
- Pattern: Ruby Hexagon Blanket by Nova Seals
- Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes (used approx 2250 yards)
- Hook size: G
I named my blanket Folk Star because it reminds me of Folky colors. Enjoy a Folky song and I will be cuddling away with my new blanket. Happy weekend everyone!
