Project Linus Blanket #42 - Time Out 4-28-22

“Time Out”

I was only a third of the way through this blanket when I had to put it in time out. Not that it had misbehaved, but my wrist was NOT having it any more. Despite trying to be careful, shoveling heavy, wet snow about a week and a half apart (lots of it) really did a number on my wrist. It was painful. It even hurt when I was wearing my brace.

So for Lent this year I gave up crocheting. That was painful, too. I’d just purchased some wonderful yarn for two more blankets after this one was finished. And it all had to sit there. Taunting me. *sigh*

Instead of crocheting I spent time reading and doing some spiritual study. It was good for me.

Easter day I put my brace on and made a few stitches. I was half-afraid that I’d forgotten how to crochet! I felt a little rusty, but I quickly picked up steam. I held myself back and only crocheted for about an hour, and I’ve been slowly increasing the amount of time that I can spend hooking. So far, so good. I was able to complete this blanket!

Project Linus Blanket #42 Detail

To be honest, I just wanted to get this one done so that I could move on to the delicious yarns. The yarn that I used for this project was some that I’d purchased a few years ago from Michaels. It’s their brand CraftSmart and it sucks. It’s worse than Super Saver, that’s how plastic it feels. However, I’m told it softens up a bit after a few washes. Let’s hope so. There’s not much left after this blanket so I think it’s going to get tossed so that I don’t have to use it again.

The blanket I’m currently working on uses Yarn Bee’s (Hobby Lobby brand) Sugarwheel. It’s so soft! I love it and I have some more Yarn Bee lined up for the blanket after that one. I can’t wait!
