yulemas crafted gifts

I don't know what it is about Fall, but as soon as the air starts getting cooler, I start wanting to knit/crochet.

Don't ask me to knit in the summer, but during the dark turns of the wheel, I'm all over it!

I'm currently crocheting a blanket for a friend for Yulemas. She's someone who I think could use a little extra tlc this holiday season so I started this quiet about 2 weeks ago. I'm trying to remember to infuse it with love as I work, in hopes that she will always feel loved and cared for when she uses it.

Hopefully I've given myself a decent timeline to get it down before the holidays. It's always a little tricky to plan a handmade gift that gets down in time for the season!

It's super soft and warm, so I am hoping that it'll do the trick. The pattern is very simple, meant for a beginner, but the yarn suggested for it is really not beginner friendly. I was about 60 rows in before I caught a mistake I was making. I was looping into the wrong loop in my half double crochet because it was too hard to see the extra hole in the yarn. Instead of starting over again, I opted to continue with the mistake as it'll make the blanket thicker and warmer. But yeah, not an easy wool to work with, despite being cozy, if you're not able to see stitches well in fluffy yarns!

Here's to hoping I get it finished in time and that it does the job it's meant to do!
