Last night I picked up the latest Hug from Marienne Blanket that had been pieced together some weeks ago and was sitting on the pool table just waiting for further attention.
First I took a picture of the layout. Then I carefully picked up the swatches in order. Then I got out my Clover Locking Stitch Markers to pin together the pieces following the photograph of the layout snapped earlier. Finally I began crocheting the swatches together horizontally between rows. Upon completion of the horizontal rows, I ended up with a blanket that is somewhat artistic in nature.
I just love how it looks before the vertical connections are crocheted. Today I'll do that, plus weave in the loose ends. I'll probably leave the outer crochet edge for tomorrow. I'll need something to do in the big blizzard of 2013!
