Scrap or Save

I have been a little frazzled recently, and in an attempt to get some ‘down time’ away from the screen was planning on doing a bit of crochet again. I say “a bit”, because as it stands I have never actually completed a project. In the cot next to my bed (which is used to store clothes, lest you think I’ve given up co-sleeping) is a project I started for the birth of my nephew. My nephew turned 7 this year.

Anyway, I was going to take my hooks and wool on holiday with me at the weekend but unfortunately couldn’t find them before we were due to leave (note to self: do not ever again try to get all packing done in the space of 2 hours right before you leave whilst juggling a baby and a toddler).

On a hunch, I checked the wardrobe earlier and lo and behold, two boxes of yarn (acrylic) and my hooks, as well as various projects I’ve started from over the years. I am thinking about actually finishing a couple of these, but don’t know which to choose. So I’m handing over the decision to you guys… scrap or save? Pick your favourite two, I will endeavour to finish them at some point in the next millenium and might even photograph my progress.

And I can’t finish this one because I don’t know what it was supposed to be, but thought I’d throw it in anyway:

    Well if you can’t be bothered to finish any of these you could always just undo them and make a nice big blankie to throw over your knees on chilly winter days/evenings. As for the baby pink draft excluder thingy… it is just me that sees it as a willy warmer or am I just being smutty here? ;)

    Sew everything together to make one big giant blanket. Sure it won’t look great, but it’s easier than knitting a whole new blanket. haha
