I know what inspired me, but I'm not quite sure how I persevered. The observant among you will have noticed that, yes, those are crocheted pockets. For this, dear reader, is the all-wool advent calendar, finished off just before midnight on the last day of Wovember, with pockets made in red and green carpet yarn, stitched on to a recycled woolen blanket. I did enjoy making it but decided quite early on that it would be achievement enough to finish it in time for the first of December and that absolute perfection was not necessary. Hence a certain lack of consistency in size which I like to
Now I just have to get round to filling up the pockets.
Enjoy the countdown, people.
