Project #1 - Pram Blanket

So my latest 'crafty' project was to knit a pram blanket for our baby, who we've nicknamed 'Darth'. It's one of those projects that seem like a good idea at the time, but once you've started you realise how long it's actually going to take and you wonder whether you should just quit while you're ahead.

The blanket is 12 squares in total, and with each square taking around 4-5 hours to knit, it's looking like an investment of at least 50 hours just for the knitting component! Then there is the added work of sewing it together and then blanket stitching around the edge of it. As if that isn't enough, I then have plans to applique an owl onto one of the corners with wool felt to go with the owl theme of our nursery.

Currently I have a total of 6 green squares and 4.5 green and white striped squares, so I'm well on my way.... just lacking the required motivation to actually keep going.

Here are the links to the other posts on the pram blanket:
