Vix Knits… and crochets and sews…

My adventures in the wonderful world of arts and crafts

African Flower Blanket – update

on November 12, 2012

Well, it has to be said that progress on the AFB is not going well!

After all the upset over the yarn and losing my momentum during the move, it mostly just sits and looks at me as if to say ‘why Vix?’

It’s doing it now…

It doesn’t help that I can’t see an end-point. Before, it was simply a case of crocheting so many motifs and sewing them together.

But the blanket still isn’t big enough so it’s now a case of crocheting so many and checking to see if it’s big enough, if it’s not, crochet some more.

It seems never-ending right now

Here are some recent pics:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s looking good but, as you can see, the size is still a bit lacking.

Since taking these, I’ve sewn up the sixth row and started work on the seventh but, judging by the pictures and the blanket itself, six by eight motifs isn’t going to be quite big enough either.

Now, the blanket isn’t intended to go on the bed but to be kept in the living room for snuggling under but it still needs to be a decent size so nobody gets chilly.

Steven thinks it might even need to be eight by ten!

What do you think?

    I always like big blankets. The ones that are just big enough never seem to be the right size when you really want a blanket. It looks fabulous though. I’m sure it’ll be worth it once you’re looking at a finished project!
