My Pandemic Blanket

In June 2020 I decided that I needed a large, simple project to keep my hands occupied and my busy mind focused on simple stitches and gestures.

I didn’t want to make any decisions about colour or to have to focus on a pattern. I found the perfect yarn from fellow guild member Lynne Anderson of West Coast Colour. And I was on my way.

I enjoyed every minute of this crochet project. I savoured the simplicity and repetition. I even loved weaving in all the ends.

And best thing, I love using it. It is comforting, with a weight to it that says everything is going to be okay.

Pandemics end.
