Yesterday I managed to do 3 whole rows of this. I don't do much crochet, in fact the only other crochet I have done was a Granny Square blanket but I am enjoying this. It is getting rather heavy and it keeps me very warm while I'm working on it.
These next 2 photos are of a blanket that my grandmother made about 30 years ago. I don't think I will ever be as good as she was, particularly not when I take into account that she used a proper pattern to make the blanket. Thats a pattern with symbols; no written instruction except for the size of crochet hook and amount of wool- amazing. She really was a very talented lady.
