When I am lucky enough to be the passenger on a long drive, I often get my teeth stuck into some crocheting that I keep in a bag behind my seat.
In keeping with granny blankets and my own upcycling/recycling preference, every single bit of wool is either the ends from something already made (be it tea cosies, gloves, hats or scarves), bits bought at car boot sales/charity shops or oddments that my mum has given me from her knitting projects. Some of it has been around for absolutely years and I can see some of the long gone garments in my minds eye when I’m crochetting away
It is a slow process but a brilliant use of my time in the car where I can crochet and chat to JC en route!!
The dog always travels at my feet in our big old X3 and his help is always welcome.
I have only managed about 75 squares which is surprisingly far from the finished size that I want to eventually achieve and even when all the squares are finished, I will have all the ends to finish off. That is a horrible and very long job but it has to be done. I have joined the squares as I go which reduces the amount of finishing off and it feels like it is evolving nicely but I still have a fair way to go.
I’m not in any hurry though and I have plenty of wool and hopefully plenty of journeys to come so I will get there eventually.
