My longest project…


…so far.

Almost three years ago I discovered a blanket on the beautiful blog I immediately fell in love with the pattern and when I discovered that there was even a tutorial available to make this quilt I just knew I had to do it.

Unfortunately though I was never great at crocheting and therefore first asked my mum and my granny for help. It took them a whole afternoon to explain the basics to me and they said more than once that this project might be a bit too ambitious for me. Well, stubborn as I am I went on and tried to understand this whole crocheting-thing. Still struggling a bit I asked my friend Anni for more help and – clever as she is – she really managed to teach me how to do it.IMG_4576

There were times when I spent hours working on the quilt as I was determined to finish it as soon as possible. There were times when I ran out of wool and was really happy when my mum provided me with more. There were times when I thought this project would never come to an end. At the end of 2014 I even discovered that the grey wool I was using was no longer in production. At this point I decided that I had to finally finish the quilt.IMG_4577

To cut a long story short: Not long ago I finally finished my quilt and I love it. I am so proud that I went on and finished it.

I really want to say thank you to my mum who provided all the wool, to my granny who explained all the basic crocheting skills to me, to Anni who was so patient with me, to Joni who helped with calculating how many hexagons I would need and to all the other people who told me to not give up…and of course to Rike from that developed this great tutorial at first place.

I need to think about a new big project now. Ideas and suggestions are always welcome!
