Crochet ADD (WIP)

The other day I was reading an interview with Etsy's featured seller: Roots and Feathers when I saw this picture:

Okay, so I actually saw the picture first *then* read the interview (I scan the pictures first to judge if it's something I want to read). Aside from l.o.v.i.n.g her style, I really started coveting that perfect little granny-square throw draped over her chair. Gorgeous! And, being me, I started to mentally calculate how much yarn I'd need and whether I should use cotton or wool.

But, NO!
I cut the musings short, I fought the temptation to be excessive. I already *have* a blanket project.

Remember this one? It's my "Bed of Roses" blankie. It's growing and growing....

...and looking gorgeous on my bed.

I've made some tweaks to the size. 8 squares wide and 11 deep. I've also finished up a skein of each color and can now tell you that 1 skein of my red goes toward 11 roses, and 1 skein of my silver goes toward 16 squares.

In short: I'm going to need more yarn. Oh, drat. ;)

Like my stash basket? Me too. Here's the free pattern, available from the Purl bee.
I love their website, gorgeous colors!

I love my rosie blanket. And I'm trying to remind myself of that when faced with temptation to put it on hold (ie, ditch it) to make a different blanket that I'll likely end up ditching. I must break the Crochet-ADD cycle!




  1. I tend to judge Etsy articles by the picture too. It's funny because I was immediately drawn to the old dolls! Love the blanket, by the way.

  2. Miriam saw your picture and asked "Who is THAT!?"

  3. Great spot! Love your blog :) thanks :)
