Project 52: Warmth

4.09.2013

Warmth was the latest Project 52 theme over at My Four Hens, and so I shot this little blanket that kept me and my family warm during the chilly winter. I crocheted it a few years ago as a tutorial to practice the V-stitch. A lazy stitch really, one that allows you to finish a project pretty quickly (since quickly was all the time I had). So it was completed fast and is much smaller than it should be. Not quite the size of a full throw, our feet were always protruding out of it into the cold.

Nevertheless, my boys and I craved its warmth, and I loved that we would try to huddle underneath it together (like elephants cramming into a VW beetle during a snowstorm).

If you're participating in a P365/P52, I'd love to know how it's going...

  3. Beautiful captures of this blanket and stitching detail! I love the light throughout, very warming. How snuggly this would make anyone feel on a too-cold day, no matter the size:)

    (BTW, love seeing the chess players in Dupont Circle - such concentration & as you said, bravery to play publicly.)

  5. Oh, the soft tones and fabric, very evocative and could almost - ALMOST - make me long for some additional winter days :) I admire your crocheting skills (and patience - how do you find the time????), bravo!

    1. Aw Daydreamer, you're so very sweet! I crocheted the blanket a few years ago (when I only had one little boy :). These days, I long to crochet but simply just don't have the time (heavy sigh)...
