Current stage with Wool-Eater crochet along project

Last Wednesday I had completed the 6th round of my crochet-along blanket…

I’m continuing with Granny Squares as found that I had to stop at the 8th round of colour. The oddments I had weren’t long enough to complete a further round (the original reason for starting it) and I would need to purchase new full balls. I can see why it’s called a Wool-Eater Blanket! 🙂

Wool Eater Crochet along Sarah London blanket oddment yarn

This is how my project looked last Wednesday

Here is the stage I’ve reached today with my blanket.  I have to make a lot more Granny squares!

Join in and crochet a Wool Eater Blanket with Sarah London

I had this on my list of to-do-projects since January but have finally started it 🙂

It is another project for using up oddments of yarn. Where as the knitted squidgy hexipuffs use up oddments of 4 ply yarn, this crochet-along-with-Sarah project uses double knit yarn.

Looking back on 2011 – Sometimes you just want to try out techniques

A simple crochet flower can be used as an embellishment to clothing or homewares or just attach a pin and you have a summery brooch

Sometimes you just want to try out a pattern or yarn for ideas - this didn't work. The good thing about knitting is you can just undo it and use the yarn for a new project 🙂
