I have been working really hard on my crocheting over the last few weeks during the evenings and weekends. I have temporarily abandoned my last blanket as I had discovered that using my bigger hook and four strands of wool takes much less time. I am about half way through this one now. I want it to be big enough to use in my double bed. The only downside to this is that I have spend over £120 on wool for this piece so far and there is much more to go. I am very glad however that it is so warm and thick as it will be really functional after finishing.
