A few years ago I put my Eastern Jewels blanket away in the too hard basket thinking it may never resurface . Now I am so pleased that I took the plunge and restarted it. Despite a little creative improvisation here and there to get the octagons right, it has all pieced together nicely.
I apologise for the blurred parts on the right side of the photo and the curled half triangles on each corner. Now more fun begins....the border. I thought this would be the easiest part but I am having some difficulty with the instructions. Maybe I should think about it later after I have had some sleep.
I was already pondering what crochet project to do next and was considering a few things when I found that Lucy at Attic 24 has announced a new CAL. It is called Springfrost and shall be starting early January. So, I hopped onto my lappy and ordered the yarn kit which shall wing its way here in 7 to 14 days. I have ordered a few Attic 24 kits from Wool Warehouse over the years and made a few of Lucy's blankets which I love. Hmmm, I wonder if I will ever get back to stitching? Yeah! Too many UFOs waiting for me.
