#7 Colorful Crochet Blanket
I started this crochet blanke t in 2013. It's an easy enough project, but crocheting is not my main craft, so crocheting large things makes my wrist hurt a bit. I got half way on this, then, for some reason, I put it away... Suddenly a few years have flown ...

The List: #8
Why do we hesitate to frog? Is it because we really want to finish the project? Or because we think of all the hours already spent knitting on it? On all those thousands of stitches. Wasn't the yarn as expected? The fabric to dense or to loose? Or didn't th...
