Baby Bobble Afghan Completed

Bobble Baby Blanket Complete

Today I completed my first craft project of 2010.  It’s a Baby Bobble Afghan I started a while back from a pattern by Bernat.  Now I just have to get it packed up and sent off…

I’m a little sad in a way, I quite enjoyed working on this and I learned quite a bit as it was only my second crochet project ever.  I did make one mistake in it but I try to remember something I read once about not stressing too much about mistakes when you are a beginner because it gives your work some charm and gives you something to look back on and see how far you’ve come.

I do hope the person who receives it enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for them.  I think I enjoy crocheting more than knitting, at least for now.  It’s easier as you only have one stitch at a time and if you drop one it’s so much easier to pick back up than if you are knitting.  I have no idea what I am going to work on next but my plan is to try to complete all my unfinished projects before starting anything new.  That should keep me busy for quite a while seeing as one of them is a fairly big quilt that has been stopped and started many times over the last few years and still has a lot left to be done.

Maybe I’ll try to complete my X-Mas Wish BOM to make sure it’s ready to be put up before next x-mas.  Regardless, there are no shortage of projects here to keep me busy!

      I’m thinking about it but I screwed up a bit on the border before I put it away so I’m avoiding it now haha I might finish one of my cross stitches first and go from there.

    Tammy, the baby blanket is gorgeous! Your second ever? Damn! I’m impressed. Artistic and creative talent always amazes me as I have NONE!

      Thanks Cath! Now that I think about it, it’s my 3rd project. My first was years ago when I was about 18 though so it doesn’t really count. I’m quite proud of this one, I really like it :)

      It is really cuddly, while I was working on it I loved having it on my lap. If it weren’t for the dogs and cat I’d have more of this stuff around my house. Yarn / animal hair doesn’t jive well though.
