One Skein Down

Jellybean’s Purple Blanket is one skein in!

The jumbo locking stitch markers are a HUGE help to this novice crocheter. I have thus far (knock on wood) been able to maintain 10 stitches in between the markers. I have had to fudge once or twice but no one can tell and the blanket is still square! I do struggle with consistent tension. But that will come with time and practice. I don’t find crochet as therapeutic as knitting so I don’t know that I will devote a ton of time to crochet versus knitting. But it’s nice to have that tool in the toolkit.

I leave this project in the living room where Jellybean and I both can see it. He reminds me every once in a while that his blanket isn’t done yet. So it’s good motivation to add a few stitches every night. Now I only have 2-3 more massive chenille skeins to go….

Happy Knitting….er, I mean crocheting!

  1. I know how you feel about how therapeutic crocheting. I’m not a fan of it, and it hurts my hands so I can’t do it for long. I wish you the best of luck finishing the project.

  2. I haven’t been able to pick up much of it myself. I started to crochet a toy train once because it was all squares…it was simple. I lost interest, but I still have little idea what I’m supposed to do. I like crochet in the fact that it’s usually a repeated “simple” stitch, however, with knitting, I just have to learn when I can talk to people and when I can’t;-).
