I am absolutely as shocked as you are that I managed to plough through this thing as quickly as I did. I go to work each day, I shower, I eat properly... So how did I do it?
The truth of the matter is, I had very little to do with it. Crochet is just one heckuva speed demon! Especially when you knit as much as I do. To have knit a baby blanket in that amount of time would never have happened in my knitting world (I'm not known for my speed-knitting skills).
The colours were addictive and the stitch pattern rhythmic.
I couldn't put it down.
So much so in fact, that I immediately began to feel withdrawl symptoms as soon as I had sewn in that last end. It was as though this project had moved too quickly, and I wasn't ready to let it go just yet.
The solution to this problem?
Start another one.
So, I did.
Fast, Fun Facts
Pattern- Vintage Crocheted Blanket by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
Yarn- Diamond Luxury Collection Superwash Merino Aran
10 colours, 11 balls (one ball of each, plus two for the main colour)- we have kits at the shop
Hook- 5mm (I believe that the pattern called for a 4mm, but I went for a 5mm anyway- I'm bad like that, you know?)
So now that I have proven that the yarn in every corner does in fact serve a purpose...
Do you think I can talk him out of that 'motorcycle wall'?
