I posted this picture on instagram a couple of weeks ago. It's pretty disgusting really, all this unused wool, cotton and acrylic just sitting around my bedroom. I laid it all out to get a handle on what I was dealing with and hopefully to refocus my attention on making with what I have and clearing the clutter. It's a bit intimidating. Acquiring all this yarn has been a slow burn. I add on a few balls here and there to get the free delivery, I buy different yarns in the hope of trying them out, and then I get waylaid with big projects like the make for anyone blanket, or my granny a day blanket.
I'm confident though that I'll make some great stuff with all this. My crocheting is much better and faster than it was even a year ago and I am now able to turn around a baby blanket in less than a week, something that seemed completely impossible a few years ago! If you are just starting out with crochet my advice is persist and just keep practising and picking it up everyday. After a while it all comes together and you can start making what you want relatively quickly.
I'll see you tomorrow to show you my latest mini project!
