The Countdown Begins

About 18 months ago my husband started his Master’s degree. And about 18 months ago, I started a big blanket project.

Last week, he started his last semester of school, and that made me realise that I need to up my game. So, for the past weekend you could see us either home or at cafes – one completely absorbed in his homework, the other vigorously crocheting (although, there was an hour or two where I too tried my hand at linear equations ;)).

Here’s my progress so far, 87 squares, all from the Last Dance on the Beach. Compared to the first blanket, where I had absolutely no say in picking the colours, this one looks so timid and calm. Maybe a bit too timid and calm.

Tonight will be all about that 1 last square, weaving in ends, and spending hours on obsessing over the right layout. And, as my husband will start writing his thesis, I will start joining the squares. Seems like an equal amount of work to me 😀
