So after joining everything and hiding the tails I found out that I did the joining wrong on my carousel.
And being a perfectionist I just couldn’t let it go. I was not satisfied with my piece and I had to change it.
So I frogged all that I had joined and started over.
This time I did it right and it’s so much better! It’s lying almost entirely flat without blocking. My previous attempt didn’t! I’m so happy that I changed it! Even though it meant a lot more work.
I did it all in one evening and my arms and neck was very sore afterwards. But I did it and I’m so in love with this CAL again.
Here you can see the difference of the two after joining without blocking.
So I joined yet another cal. The carousel cal. I love it but wow it’s a challenge. I managed to finish part one and two but not without a struggle. In the picture above I pinned the whole thing down to get it straight. I hope it will work out in the end. You can see below how it looked before I blocked it.
I finished my blanket and I love it. It’s so soft and warm. And it didn’t even take that long. It’s crocheted with two threads and a5,5 mm hook. I love the pattern by the talented Dedri Uys 🙂
Now to find good places to take pretty pictures. I’ll have to wait for daylight so this will have to do for now.
I needed a small break from all my blankets. So I made my daughter a Pokemon. I think it turned out kinda cute.
