My October craft project.... at last.... and a new beginning

Oh my! Does time fly when you are being kept busy! Most days I have just enough time to read my bloglovin' list and barely a minute to think of posting. I know I'm a bad blogger, but life has been such good fun. Work is going well, thank you, and Mr Angel Jem is getting through lots of work from home. 
And by the time I sit still, to string a coherent sentence together impossible to seems be.

So, mindless, repetitive crafting has been the order of the day. A pick up and put down, just watch TV and monotonise movement craft. Yes, a blanket. I began this one back in September with a plan; to snuggle under it by Christmas Day to watch Downton. And I could, except..... it no longer belongs to me. 

As I wrote here, it has been claimed and stolen from me and most nights lives on the Princess' bed, except when it's video night and gets dragged down as the softest snuggliest to cuddle under.

 It's just the right size to fit two close friends, or one Mum and a Princess, so we use it often.

 And if you look closely you can see my next two projects; do you see them?

The first one is easy; it's a matching blanket. This is just mine, mine and no one else's, unless they want to learn crochet and make it their bloody selves. This will be my Downton snuggle, hopefully with the DVD of series 4 to watch and enjoy again, and again.

 But for now I have some more mindless, repetitve (not as unneeding as the granny stripe but not bad) crochet to do when I sit and get a chance. 

 The basket by my chair overflows again,

 It's another pack of Attic 24's favourite colours, from ebay, just like the granny stripe.

With the advantage that my random stripe generator system I used last time (a lot of little cards in my crochet tin) is just as useful here again.

And the second new project? Come on! You have to come back again to find out if you're right!


  1. Lovely blanket and blanket-to-be! I want one!

    1. Thanks! I really needed to make it for me because I was so jealous of the Princess's.

  2. Your blanket is beautiful. No wonder everyone wants to snag it away. I look forward to seeing what you make next. :)

    1. Hopefully now I'm more settled in at work I'll be able to post more often!

  3. Your blanket is beautiful. Lovely colours.

    1. Thank you! And thank you for sharing my link on your blog.

  4. No wonder your daughter wanted the blanket, it's gorgeous. I'd recommend crocheting your ripple in private, away from prying eyes, otherwise the same might happen.

    1. But if I did that, then I'd only ever be able to crochet on the toilet.... it's the only private place in this house!

  5. I am with the Princess, I would have snaffled the blanket given half a chance, it's lovely.
    Good luck with keeping the next one!
    So glad to read all is going well work wise for Mr Angel.
