Tonight I started my 2004 temperature blankets. I’m making two of them as graduation gifts for my niece and younger daughter. Eventually I will start the 2002 version for my older daughter’s 20th birthday gift. I ran to Joanns for more yarn since my online order was delayed and I realized I would need a lot more yarn to complete 3 of these afghans. Tomorrow the huge rope basket I ordered from Amazon to hold the 10 colored skeins should arrive. I’m going to need to dedicate 2 hours a day on these to get them done in 6 months. It takes about 20 minutes per row and I need to do 2 rows on each blanket each day to get them done in time for gifting in June. I’m not sure that I can work any faster on single crochet. I really love the Clover Armour crochet hooks I bought. I’ve been collecting a lot of crochet hooks lately. But the Clover ones are just about perfect. In my order from We Crochet I have 2 complete sets coming that will hopefully be useable.
I can’t wait for my order from Knit Picks to arrive. I have roving and a drop spindle coming. I haven’t spun yarn in at least 8 years so I’m not sure if my spinning wheel still works. That’s why I bought the drop spindle kit … to be sure I can spin in either case. It came with a drop spindle, a niddy noddy, and 3 batches of roving. I also got 10 packs of bare superwash wool to spin. I can’t wait to get that going. Maybe working on that on thanksgiving which is when I will next have time.
