I know. I call blankets ‘blankies’. Yes, it’s a bit juvenile, but ‘blankie’ is much more about how a blanket is and feels than ‘blanket’ could ever be.
This blanket is speedy and stripe-y. It’s the Speedy Stripe and people have been making these for ever and a day.
To crochet this, I just chained A HUGE AMOUNT of stitches and did rows of treble crochet until it was big enough. This is actually quite big. It took around 20 minutes a day over the last 3 weeks or so.
It’s for a cute person’s birthday and I hope they will really like it!
I have so many ‘orders’ for blankets in my family. Or rugs. Some people call them rugs. (My Nan for instance). I think a rug goes on the floor, but don’t tell Nan that. She’ll get stroppy with me (like she did the time I said ‘dinner’ and she corrected me with ‘tea’!)
I have been working on a few different new-to-me things and I have stretched my brain a bit too much. It’s tired and feels like it’s bigger than my head. It’s trying to come out my eye sockets and I have to keep saying ‘No, brain. Do not come out of my eyes. That’s not okay.’ My brain is trying to listen, I can tell, but it’s still feeling stretchy and bulge-y. Ugh.
I hope you are well, reader peeps. I hope your brain is not trying to pop out of your eye sockets.
Love to you. I will report back on the Birthday Blanket very soon!
PS: This blanket is large – double or queen bed size, in fact! Goes to show you can whip something ace up pretty quickly, if you want to!
PPS: Sorry my coffee table has crumbs on it.
