Blanket progress report: Hic!

Did my assistant have a few cocktails before this photo shoot? Hmmm, Mooky? No drinking on the set! Pull yourself together!


The blanket continues to grow, although I spent last night's TV time weaving in all the ends along one side instead of adding more rows. I'll end up crocheting a border around the whole thing at the very end, I think, just to neaten things up. Oh, Mooky just left -- I think he's going to sleep it off and try to come back into focus -- so let's have another look, shall we?


As always, the colours look richer in person. I have no idea how big this thing is going to get. I've got lots of yarn left, in a box next to the couch that-- Hey! Mooky?


Time to lay off the sauce, little buddy. You're only hurting yourself.

Have I mentioned that I love your cat??? What a cutie.

I can't believe how fast your blanket has grown! Great colour selection, too!

Chris said...

Do you ever sleep?? Or do you just work on that blanket? You realize that Mooky thinks it's a cat bed for him, right?

It has a lovely antique country feel to it. Instant classic.

Mooky can't help loving the yarn... It's a common affliction.

Mooky is soooo cute. Any baby photos of him? I can hardly imagine.
Why don't you just crochet your ends in as you go? That must have been miserable spending all that time weaving them.
That's a pretty blanket - kind of Bolivian or Guatemalan, don't you think?

mookie is too funny! the blanket is turning out awesome! you're gonna love it when you're done with it.

Gee, Mooky takes all of the blame. Mooky spread the word thru the kitty grape vine that it was Mommy on the sauce when she took the photos. And Mooky wants to know when he is getting his blanket? -- Mimi the Wonder Meezer

No doubt about who's the star here!

That is a beautiful cat! The blanket is coming along wonderfully too. It almost makes me want to take up the hook and make one, but I'm too afraid.

Leigh said...

Oooooh, he's so cute.

(Can you tell I vicariously pet own through other folk?)

The blanket is looking amazing (Mooky is not so bad himself!). Jenny was talking about weaving in crochet ends the other day. She said that you just lay the old yarn on top of the row and that locks it down. This is all Greek to me. It's in the Happy Hooker, if you have access to that.

Wow! I would love to do a blanket like that.
