I´ve already started to try out some popcorn stitches, I love the wool I´ve worked with, and the pattern looks very nice.
But, I´ve got some hesitations to start this ´project´:
- There are already two unfinshed blanket projects like this, hidden in one of my closets. In the end I wasn´t satisfied about the technique an the chosen material. What makes me certain I´m going to finish this one?
- To make a blanket the size of a bed, I have to crochet about 125 similar parts. 125, that´s a lot of hours doing the same thing.. Maybe a pillow would be nice?
- Besides the work I have to put in it, in total, it will cost me €150. And then I don´t really know what the final result will be. Maybe it will be of a poor B-quality?
- After a little bit of searching, I found two other great patterns for blankets:
Styling by Susanna Vento via The Style Files
Elegant granny style found on Purlbee
Now I´m already starting to have doubts about which pattern and colors I have to choose. Maybe I can combine the patterns? I´m going to think this one through..
Making it myself will be the most rewardable option, but it will take me some time to get there. But I commit myself to complete at least one blanket in 2012!
