Can you believe it's been two weeks since I last spoke to you?!!! Time is just flying by! Today I'm feeling all reminicent (!) so I wanted to show you a project that I finished a few months ago. It was my first ever C2C or Corner To Corner blanket. My Instagram followers will already be familiar with it as you all watched it's progress over a few months.
It turned out to be ALOT bigger than I anticipated because I just carried on going until I ran out of yarn. In the beginning I thought it would just be single bed size but in the end, it was double bed size! I loved making this blanket sooo much. It took me a bit to get to grips with the pattern but once it had "clicked", the rows started whizzing up!!!
It does have a sad story to it unfortunately. I'd been making it for a friend who was in hospital at the time and who we thought would soon be returning back home and I wanted to have this blanket ready for her home-coming but she very suddenly passed away before I could get it finished. After that, trying to get the blanket finished had a very bitter-sweet feeling to it and for a while I didn't really want to do anymore to it. Once it was finished though, I decided to give it to one of her closest friends. I'm so pleased it's gone to a good home, to someone who appreciates it very much.
Every stitch is a labour of love, it's a wonderful feeling to be able to give it to someone who appreciates all the time, effort and love we put into our creations! I'll definitely be doing another C2C blanket sometime soon, because the pattern is so lovely and relaxing to make, but not until I've finished some of my other current wips (who knows how long that will take!!! ;oD ).
Well, I hope you're all having a lovely Sunday! Thank you so much for dropping by! Speak to you all very soon my lovelies!!!
