Spring Blanket ~ Part 3

I’ve decided to concentrate all  crafting efforts on finishing this Spring Blanket in time to give it to my mother on Christmas Day.

It’s not like it has to be finished ~ she certainly doesn’t expect it, but really, there’s nothing quite like a deadline, is there?

Also, I’m just not enjoying my other projects, because I know in my heart of hearts that I should be crocheting more of these Willow Squares.

I need 80 in total for an 8 x 10 blanket. I’m hoping that’s enough, but I’m not game to lay it out and look yet, because I’m not sure I could cope if it needs more, lol! I can always do a lovely big border :D.

– I have 22 squares to go
– They take just under an hour each
– I’m making 3 per night
– I will have the squares finished in a week
– And another week to make up the blanket

That leaves a whole ten days to finish every other craft project I have to finish before Christmas.

I mean, how hard can it be, really?

    • Thanks so much Missy! I hope she likes it ~ I’m sure she will… but I think she’ll be surprised when it’s actually finished. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas too 🙂

    • Thanks so much 🙂 Yes, I can’t wait to see it finished too, lol! I’m at that stage where I’ve just about had enough, but I’m pushing through it, ha!

      • I had that happen recently with a project for a friend- it’s such a relief when it is finally done. And your blanket is going to be absolutely lovely!

    • Thanks Janette 🙂 Yes, it’s a Rowan Cotton Glace – it doesn’t have a ply written on it, but it’s about 4 or 5 ply I think? It’s really lovely to crochet with.
