Way, way back in 2010 I wrote a blog post bemoaning the hexagonal quilt I had started in 2007 and had never finished. This mother was the ultimate unfinished project for me. The knitted albatross around the crafters neck. I thought that had bitten off more than I could chew.
A week ago, I realised that I was in the home straight and decided to finish this crocheted millstone for once and for all, before the Blue Moon on August 31st. I liked the idea of tying in this monumental craft effort with an appropriately rare astronomical phenomenon. It would be a Blue Moon before I would ever attempt to make anything as large again.
So, here it is. About half the size I had originally planned for, but it's finished - that's the main thing - and it looks really lovely draped over a chair or a bed.

The perfect sampler for the vegetarian, or the Smiths fan in your life (and of course if you know a vegetarian Smiths fan then all your present-buying woes are truly over).
A hand-stitched sampler, plucked fresh from the boughs of my Etsy shop.
More lovely knitted stuff to come in September including some new doll designs which I am rather excited about...
