It was last year when I told you about my On The Go Blanket and it hasn't been mentioned since then. That's because it hasn't grown very much.
The idea of this blanket is that it's made up of small granny squares which are very portable and easy to carry around, so it's an ideal project for on the go. None of the squares I crochet for this blanket will be made at home, it's a project that I can take from place to place and work on when I'm out and about. Once it's all made up, it will remind me of some happy days out.
This was the project which I took with me on holiday this year, and though I didn't get many squares made, I did crochet a few. I'm now at a total of fifty squares.
I'm loving the colours which I chose for this blanket, Meadow, Grape, Pomegranate, Soft Peach, Lemon, Cloud Blue and Cream. They're all from the Stylecraft Special DK range.
I can see this becoming a very long term project but I don't mind, it's great to have something there ready to just pick up and go with when I'm heading out the door.
Eleanor's ripple blanket is still on the hook too. It's been neglected lately as I've had my knitting needles out rather than my crochet hook but I'm starting to feel a tug to return to crochet so it may get a little attention this week.
I used to be a one project at a time kind of girl but that changed when I learnt to crochet, I'd have one knitting project and one crochet project going but now I seem to have at least a couple of each. I suppose it's good to have different things to pick up and go with as the mood takes me.
