When I dove all the way to the bottom of that unfinished pile of works I caught glimpses of other projects that were well on their way to get lost into oblivion.
With my crochet hook still firmly attached to my hand from the previous unfinished yet now finished project, I picked up another blanket. This particular one had only been in there for a little over a year... yikes... and was in a further stage of completion even though the blanket was quite a bit larger than the previous one. Four squares and some edging were missing...
Miss Declutter put her focus on sharp and voilà... another finished blanket!
As you can see this one also is already in use. That's what happens when winter keeps throwing tantrums and keeps spring at bay with freezing cold temperatures and snow! Yes, snow! A lot of it. So late in March... and then to think that usually snow in winter is an oddity of itself around here.... Tantrums I tell you.
Anyhow. The blanket is a large version of this one. I was left with bits of wool and decided to use them all in a full blown blanket... sized to cover a single bed.
The dense effect that this blanket has by doing all the rows in double crochets, makes it wonderful to combat cold. This one really keeps you warm above all else. Due to the fact that I've used wool and a 4 mm crochet hook, the blanket still remains surprisingly light.
I finished the thing off with a simple picot border just like the small version I made so long ago.
And yes, as a lovely reader already remarked, finishing off those lingering things is just the greatest feeling. I could swear I'm the best housewife of all times right now. Until I realize I'm late making dinner... then that award passes quickly on to someone else all together.
But for now.... ahhhhhhhhhh.... that feels good.
