You may remember that when I first started the Spice Of Life Crochet Along blanket, it all went a little wrong. There are so many different stitches in the blanket and because of this, my tension went completely to pot and I ended up starting again. I'd decided to weave in my ends as I finished each row to avoid having so many to take care of at the end but it backfired as trying to pull back my work was virtually impossible. I decided that I'd set Mick on the task, he's got so much more patience than I have, so whilst we've been sat watching television on an evening, he's been picking away at my first Spice of Life attempt and has eventually managed to take most of it back. He's done a really good job for me.
I really needed to salvage whatever yarn I could as I'm almost running out of some of the colours now yet I've still got a little way to go with the blanket, every scrap of yarn is precious. You can see the small amount of progress I've made since last month.
I've learnt my lesson how hard it is to take crochet back once the ends have been sewn in so I decided I'd deal with them all at the end, just to be on the safe side. These are the ends from just one side of the blanket, there's the same amount on the other side too. I'm not looking forward to tackling them at all.
There's still a way to go with this blanket but I'm still enjoying working on it.
