An Unlikely Stash and a Crochet Blanket CAL

My Mum has always been a master crafter, everything from making our dresses and knitting our woolies when we were young to making soft toys and teddy bears of all sizes. The smallest was a  tiny, tiny 1cm bear, the biggest thing I can remember her making was a 6 ft clown!

Blanket CAL Yarn

Any way the point is she has been having a bit of a clear out of yarn and has been knitting and crocheting blankets for charity, I said I would do one too so she kindly passed some yarn my way. It is quite an unlikely mix of colours and textures but mostly DK, there is a bit of mohair in there too. I like a challenge so I went a-searching and found this crochet CAL on  Not Your Average Crochet. Here is the result of week 1.

It is so nice to feel you are doing a project with fellow crafters, I keep coming across different sites displaying their progress and it is great to see the different colour selections.
