My crafting project ufo pile just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Oh why do I have to keep on working when there is so much craftiness fun to be had!?
Crochet is certainly high on my list of craftiness fun I’m currently enjoying. Last count I had 4 projects on the go but 1 in particular has my full interest at the moment.
I’m call this blanket The ANZAC. ANZAC being an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
I started to crochet this blanket on the long ANZAC weekend while away at the property. Perfectly named I would say. My beautiful daughter brought back for me some beautiful NZ wool when she was there earlier in the year and I’ve added some beautiful Australian wool to make a small lap blanket. She has fantastic taste in colours and chose to suite my love of country colours.
I’ve never crocheted with 100% wool before. Oh the joy of it. It is quite a heavy blanket and I’m only about 1/3 of the way there. Perhaps not quite suited to our subtropical climate but it is such a pleasure to work on and I know will be a treasured blanket for a long time to come.
Off to do some more squares for this beautiful piece of work.
