Since I had put this blog down for a really long time, I’d like to spend some time in my next few posts catching up on finishes.
Today I’d like to feature a project I finished a few months ago, and it’s the blanket I referenced in my post about using your handiwork as a meditative practice. I made this for myself, and while I worked on it, I was very mindful of the thoughts going through my head. I made sure I was relaxed and happy while making it, and I envisioned myself all wrapped up in it, cozy, maybe reading a good book and drinking a cup of tea. I let my imagination guide my intentions.
Imaginging good things for other people as I work on something for them is not a super-new concept for me, but imaginging good things for myself as I worked on a piece was pretty new. It was eye-opening!
This is the largest, most complicated crochet piece I have done to date. I’d say the pattern is good for someone with intermediate (or perhaps adventurous beginner) crochet skills.
I should note it really wasn’t THAT hard to do, even though it may look complicated. The pattern was very well written and had excellent photos and tutorials to guide you, and there is a Facebook group for support. I feel like my crochet skills grew quite a bit in the completion of this piece.
