However, I really do have good intentions of continuing to crochet! I think my current problem is that I chose a project that is going to take quite a long time, and I tend to do my crocheting in spurts. I might spend a few hours working on it one night, and then I won't pick it up again for a week. This week, I have been trying to do a little more crocheting and a little less reading. (What I really need, I think, is audiobooks that I could listen to while I'm crocheting...I need to think about that a little more.)
So what is this project I've been slowly working on since sometime in early January? It's a blanket. Here is what I have so far:As you can see, it's a very simple blanket. Not really much of a pattern...just lots and lots of raspberry colored yarn. In case you can't get an idea of the scale, I could probably stop soon and have a decent-sized baby blanket. But I want to make it something that Shawn and I could actually use when we want to snuggle up on the couch and watch TV. As of right now, it's definitely still wider than it is long, so I still have quite a bit of work ahead of me. Once I finish with the raspberry color, it will get trimmed in a different color, using a different stitch.
