look ma i'm crocheting

Don't let this post fool you.  I still have a ways to go before I can call myself a crocheter, like learning to read a pattern.  No joke I can't.  I actually found this video on youtube to learn how to do this pattern.  Then I went back to the Sarah London site, and upon seeing how my blanket was just a tad different I started again using the numbers and directions from that site, again only after I learned how to do it from youtube.

I'm not sure how I'm loving the colors yet, but seems as though this is my second time starting and I've ripped out two colors on this one alone, these colors are staying.

I have to say, I'm pretty proud of it.  I mean I can't say I'm a beginner, you know what with those two potholders under my belt and all, but I can say that I wouldn't have expected myself to get the hang of it this quick.

Now I'm not saying she's perfect.  Actually she's a  bit wonky, not quite square, the middles are sticking out a bit further than the corners.  Oh well, nothing a little blocking can't fix, isn't that what they always say.
And shhh...don't tell anyone but I'm hiding a dirty dirty secret.

I haven't been weaving in the ends as I go.  I have made a deal with myself though, I won't weave in as I go but I can't continue on with the next week's rows until I weave in the past week's ends.  


  1. This is lovely... dont go ripping any more of it up :-)

    1. I'm sorry, I just now saw this comment (truth be told I'm not used to getting them lol). Anyway thank you. And no I didn't rip it out. I also didn't keep up with the pace. I'm still trucking along though so I think that's pretty good since this is one of my first crochet projects. Again thanks for the kind words.
