Attic24’s 2018 CAL:2

The Woodland Crochet Along, Week 2 completed.

It doesn’t matter how long we take to do the Woodland Blanket, it’s not a race, but it is a good feeling to keep up with the group of avid Attic24 fans as hundreds of us all over the world are walking along the woodland paths with Lucy.

Last night I finished Week 2’s 18 rows. I’m mostly following Lucy’s Random colour order, but I have substituted Mocha (beige) with Walnut (brown).

The blanket had not been earmarked for anyone in particular when I started out, but I was with Big Bro and Little Bro and Little Bro asked me who I was making it for. When I said I didn’t know yet, he told me he liked it very much! You should have seen his face light up when I told him it could be his.

He is only 5 but wanted to know all about the CAL and how it worked. Then we laid it out on his bed. There were many questions about how long it would be and about what a border or edging is and how it might look in the end.Woodland CAL

He has brown eyes so it suits him very well and I’m delighted to know who will snuggle up under it when it is finished.

  2. Beautiful already! And good job, Little Bro, for getting an order in so soon. My children treasured the knitted blankets from their Gran….always anxious to see what colors theirs would be.

  3. This is growing very quickly, and I love the colour combinations. Little Bro is a lucky little boy to be the recipient of this. πŸ™‚

  5. Gorgeous! And that’s so cute about Little Bro.
    I, just this week, gave my Toddlerbot (he’s 18 months old) his first “lesson” in crochet. All of a sudden he doesn’t try and play with my work as much. He wants to hold the hook and try to make things. It’s so cute. I imagine when he’s 5 he’ll do something similar to your Little Bro. πŸ™‚

    • That IS cute!!! I expect you are having fun making things for your little one.

      • I would be if he wasn’t growing so much! I keep trying to make him a Weasley Sweater but every time I turn around he’s grown another inch. He’s in the 90th percentile for everything in growth (and for 18 months, wears 4T just slightly too big, but 3T is slightly almost too small…) He did get a cute Jayne hat when he was 6 months, though.

        I have small patience for things like blankets since I tend to sell my things-made-of-strings at conventions so I like to make smaller items for inventory. But I love the way this blanket is looking!

    What a sweet story! I can just picture a little brown-eyed boy being covered by the woodlands as he sleeps. Magical!
