I have been working on a baby blanket in fits and starts for the last couple of weeks. It is a filet crochet design and one that I had to concentrate on to avoid miscounting. The new patterns in one of the crochet books I got for Christmas were calling me, however, so I knuckled down and finished the blanket last night so I can begin something new with a clear conscience.
The pattern is a free one from Coats and Clark. I substituted a generic baby wool and changed the proportions to cover the difference in guage. The design seemed appropriate as it is a gift for a friend with whom I often enjoy a good gossip.
I feel so virtuous beginning the New Year without one UFO to haunt me. I’d best make the most of it while I can as I am sure it won’t last.
