I never thought I'd see the day but I have been bit by the crocheting bug.
It began by helping my friend find one on eBay (she'd been after one for a while). As I've got some time on my hands right now I decided to teach myself how to make my own. I won't say it's been easy but after a few days practice I'm finally making acceptable pieces:
I've been learning from a variety of sources but the most inspiring has been Hygge Nook who has links to instructions she has used. The design used above was courtesy of 'the yvestown blog'. I'm still decideing whether to add black or white borders.
I'm loving the 'eclecticness' and vintage feel of the blankets. I have visions of cuddly quilts in camper vans and hippies toasting marshmallows by bonfires. Wish me luck!
