No one has mentioned it, but a granny stripe blanket I started last September has been shoved down the side of the sofa for about 6 months.
We had a furniture shift round and I could see it, staring at me, willing itself to be finished, do I gathered all my crochet enthusiasm and set to it. 2 days later it's finished. I'm actually really happy with it and all it's blankety goodness!
I used cheap acrylic from Wilko's and the blanket weighs in at 740g so the total yarn cost was about £15. Well that plus the 11 months of hard and tedious labour!
Enough I hear you cry, show me the blanket. OK, here she is!
