Well, yes and no.
While I didn’t do everything I said i would (>___>), I still got a lot done.
Behold my Blanket of Assum!
This blanket is so mindless. I have been listening to the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast while I crochet it. When I was crocheting it…. haven’t touched it in like two weeks. BUT I am 50% done! I am already at 3′ long.
|Craptastic Red Heart….I’ve had some of these for years and years….|
|I like the way grey and pink looks together. Must make something with these colors together…|
|It’s 6′ wide and (here) it’s a lil less than a foot.|
|Got about a foot length done here…|
|This is with about 3 feet done.|
I plan to make a 6’x6′ square; figured it should be big enough for a full size bedspread. I also had to end up buying more yarn, as the quantity pictured above won’t be enough to finish the whole thing. I took the liberty of buying a whole new set of colors to do it because a) I was too lazy to look for the exact color ways and 2) it’ll look so badass 😀 Mind you, I did pick pout similar colors, but added one that was missing… green. I fell in love with certain shades of green recently; up until a few years ago, I never bought green yarn if I could help it. I bought a nice spring leafy green and teal. I love teal ❤
I have to say, though I didn’t do all I wanted for NatCroMo, it *did* get me to start this blanket, which is the most ambitious crafty project I have ever attempted. In two weeks’ time, I managed to get half of it done! I am pretty quick. It’s not boring per se; it’s just really heavy right now and it gets to be a pain in the ass when working with it, even on my lap. I’ll try to finish it before the summertime.
