A question I have asked myself often since I started crocheting again in March 2010.
I don't know about other people, but I sort of fall in love with an idea and just want to make it.
Well, sometimes this falling in love with an idea works out, and sometimes it don't.
At least that is what I have learned over the past year.
Take the first hexagon blanket I made last year, although I finished it I never really liked it.
So, I ended up taking it apart and using most of the yarn to make my Japanese Flower blanket.
Now, I love that blanket.
And I also love the second hexagon blanket I made.
It's over the chair in my room and I still feel pleased everytime I see it.
Although I'm still not sure about the edging I gave it.
Maybe I'll do something about that one of these days.
Well there were another couple of blanket projects that didn't make the grade for me either.
I feel in love with Mia's grey blanket.
But joining them, how???? ( I'm not a hand sewing lover, which I should have thought of before making the squares.)
Believe me I tryed all sorts of ways to join it and none of them looked right so I just left it.
And then there was the idea I had to make my oldest daughter a blanket for Christmas.
Well, it wasn't turning out the way I planned and wouldn't have been ready in time for Christmas so I left that one too.
Well, I have now fallen in love again.
The pattern is called The Granny Log Cabin Pattern, and the way things are looking now I think I will be making two of these blankets.
One from all the grey, black, white and cream colours from the grey blanketI started to make.
And, also one for my daughter using her colours of pinks, greys and cream.
This year is really turning out to be a year of make new stuff from old.
And also using stuff up.
