Hooked on crochet

I thought I'd share my progress on a new project today. I have followed the attic 24 blog since it was recommended to me by Michelle, then Claire bought me a kit for one of her patterns for Christmas. I had a go, but the patterns weren't lining up so I put it aside. Then I won a voucher for Black Sheep Wools and succumbed to some Stylecraft Special DK and got started on my cosy blanket.  Black Sheep Wools didn't have all of the colours I needed so I bought the rest of the wool from Wool Warehouse. I love that the wool comes in lovely big organza bags which are brilliant for storing your projects in. I may have also bought a kit for a second project to take advantage of the free postage.
All of the wool for my cosy blanket is stored in a basket in order of the stripes. Sad I know, but it makes it easy to grab the next two balls to work on.
All of my Stylecraft wool is stored in the wardrobe next to my long arm and I have a few random colours for future use or borders.

I store the next four colours in the organza bag and return them once used to the basket.  I've now done two stripes of each of the fifteen colours and I'm pleased with my progress. I'm trying to do two stripes every day to make visible progress.

Looks lovely - being organised with your yarn is a great idea. No wasting time when you've got some time to crochet!
