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.
