Getting On With It – Part 2

So I did get on a bit of a role after I finished the Catherine Wheel block of my Hook n Learn blanket. As soon as I had fastened them of I moved straight on to part 8, the puff Stitch block.

This block went really quickly as it had no colour changes and was a simple 2 row repeat.

Onwards and upwards. Only 4 more parts (5 more blocks) to go until I can start to assemble! Yay!

Getting On With It

Do you ever start a project then completely forget about it. I must say this is pretty rare for me, as generally speaking I tent to start a project then just keep going til it’s finished. But The Hook ‘n’ Learn blanket (Simply Crochet’s most recent CAL) had been languishin in a box for too long now. So I decided it was time to get back on it.

So out came the yarn and the bag of already completed squares so I could work out where I was at. I had already done 6 parts of the 13 park CAL. So what was part 7. Eurgh… Catherine Wheel Stitch. Suddenly I remembered why this ended up being forgotten. Back when I was following the CAL I saw so many people complain about how difficult it was. And quite frankly I think it’s and ugly Stitch, so it got put off. But if I am ever to complete the blanket I need to get on and do it!

Here they are. I am still not in love with the Stitch – looks almost clown like to me – but it wasn’t as hard as all that – it was actually quite easy! I don’t know what all of the fuss was about. Now onto the next block. Puff Stitch. Hopefully with a bit of luck, I will fly through the rest of the blocks!
