One reason I've been posting less on Another Goldfish lately, is that I've been crocheting like mad. I'm attempting to make blankets for all four of my nieces and nephews. I'd normally post this as a Step Down Sunday, but they've actually ended up supplementing rather than replacing the presents we'd normally buy.
Back when we were making our Dream scarf, my eldest niece and nephew watched intrigued as I crocheted my squares - my ten year-old nephew even gave it a try himself. So I thought I'd try to encourage their interest by making them some lap blankets - and I better make one for everyone.
Though they are technically adding to our carbon footprint this year, if the blankets go down well wiith the kids we may be able to consider more home-made Christmas presents in the future.
