After many false starts and much frogging, I managed to recreate the Luna Lovegood scarf reasonably close to the actual scarf worn in the movie.
My daughter, Shreeya, who had ‘commissioned’ this scarf , is pleasantly satisfied with the final product. 🙂 🙂 🙂
And it is a truth universally acknowledged that a happy customer makes a happy and enthused crocheter 🙂
Thus enthused and motivated, I have plunged right into as many as three projects simultaneously, and one of them is my first ever crochet blanket.
I would have crocheted a blanket years ago, if only I could pick up that one pattern from so many gorgeous patterns on the net. I have tried but failed miserably to narrow down my choice to one blanket! I wished to crochet so many of them!!! I still do and surely, some years into the future, I will have crocheted as many blankets as my heart desires. But to reach that Eldorado, the first step should be taken right now
So, the first ever blanket is under way 🙂
This, too, is commissioned by my Fan-girl geeky daughter.
She wanted me to crochet something like this from Big Bang Theory. I was still toying with this idea, figuring out the pattern, selecting the yarn and calculating the amount of yarn required in various colours when I saw this on Ravelry . As Shreeya’s latest craze is Doctor Who, this appealed to her immensely and thus was decided the pattern for my first blanket ever.
This blanket is done in tapestry crochet and unfortunately, I was not confident enough about this technique as my earlier attempt at this though successful, ha
d been quite time consuming. Instead, I plan to crochet the blanket in single crochet and then embroider the black vertical lines over it. I will still have to use tapestry crochet technique for the white windows, but I guess that should be manageable.
So lets see now, where this crocheted T.A.R.D.I.S. of mine will take me. 🙂
