Well, there’s no denying we’re well into August now, and my target date is looming!
I was hoping the summer holidays, and the break from all the kids’ regular clubs would give me more time to crochet. The trouble is, although I’m crocheting more than usual, it’s not all on this blanket!
Without this blanket dashboard for my granny stripe blanket, there is no way I’d have made this much progress. It is totally the visual support I needed to keep me at it. My rate of progress has dropped a bit, but I’m still looking good to meet my September target I think.
Yesterday I was on duty as a poll clerk for local County Council elections. Very sadly, turnout was poor, which meant I had time to crochet. I could even have done more only I ran out of wool…
I’m really glad I created this dashboard for my crochet granny stripe blanket, it is definitely inspiring me to keep going!
Previously, if I thought I didn’t have time to work on the blanket for very long, I wouldn’t get it out, but now I can see that even crocheting half row a day still adds up!
I’ve decided I really need to knuckle down on the granny stripe blanket I’m crocheting for my eldest child. Our budget should allow for me to get the wool I need for now – bearing in mind this thing is (had better be) a genuine heirloom to last the kiddo a lifetime. But several of the colours I’m using are already discontinued, meaning if I leave it much longer I’m going to be in real trouble.
So, I’m taking my granny stripe blanket properly in hand and am going to Get On With It.
