Anyway, moving on to the actual title of this post, my Christmas Character Afghan, inspired by Repeat Crafter Me.
While we were away on holiday I was able to complete two more squares, rudolf and frosty. That takes my total up to five now. With four to go.
I was chatting to the lady who runs the lovely little independent yarn shop near the boys' school recently and she too is making the blanket. I've never timed how long it takes to make a square but she reckoned it takes about 4-5 hours of work for one square. I'm lucky to get half an hour straight to crochet so you can see it's a long term project.
I haven't quite decided if I am going to make the rest of the squares as characters or make plain coloured squares to alternate with the characters I have done so far. Plain squares will work up much quicker than all the colour changes, the yarn twisting and untwisting and graph reading so I might go for that option.
I think, though, that I'm going to try and do a few more characters as they are just so cute!
And I think that's us all up to date now. Has everyone else been enjoying such a beautiful Autumn as us? And what about the rumours of a bad winter ahead? Who is looking forward to the alleged heavy snow? *puts hand up* :)
