Over the weekend Mr Goodsell had to get up super early to go on a dirt bike ride. Super early start means super early night to bed - we're talking 8pm. Um, that didn't interest me at all, because I was planning the sleep in of all sleep ins for the following morning.
Instead, I decided to stay up until w-a-y after midnight, all by my lonesome.
But, what to do with all that spare time?? I contemplated finishing off a few projects - like the hexagon pillow, long stitch, 40 squares embroidery, granny stripe blanket, Bella's crochet blanket or even the new starburst pillow that I'm working on.
But, that would be absolutely no fun, right?
So, instead I started a brand new challenge for myself - working my way through quite a few of the squares inside my favourite crochet book - 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afghans: Crochet Squares to Mix-and-Match
I started out doing the squares just for fun, with the idea of wanting to teach myself a few new patterns....but hours later I started having crazy ideas that I should keep going with these squares and turn it into another blanket.
Why yes, I think I will.... A square here and a square there out of the book, whenever I feel like doing a teensy weensy bit of crocheting. It's quite exciting to try out new patterns - although there a few in there that scare the living daylights out of me.
I'm going to call it my 'sampler blanket' - because all new and good projects need a name!
Righty-ho! I'm off to hook another square before dinner.
Yours in crocheting and brand new shiny projects ;)
