2017 the year of scrap busting

My knitting and sewing scraps, not stash, are getting out of control. They’re taking over the house and not in a good way. I have therefore declared 2017 to be the year of scrap busting and have started with this crochet blanket to use up leftover bits of acrylic dk that I have amassed through making toys for my little man.


shades of grey for the next rounds


scraps of colour for the penultimate round to be followed by a white round

The pattern is from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton and I’m using block 71, the star flower. I’m enjoying the process and being a really good girl and weaving in all the ends as I go, which is soooo much better, I wish I did it all the time! I’m going to do the last round and join each block in white. I think this is going to make a cute throw for the sofa or bed!
