I nearly finish the Fantascot and push foward on the six sudoku afghan

Today I woke up wanting to get to my crochet. I was nearly done with the Fantascot I have been working on, and I was anxious to get going on the six sudoku afghan I had recently rediscovered, but I had unavoidable errands to run.

They were not particularly arduous or unpleasant, but like all errands, they took time, so I did not get as much crochet done as I would have liked, but still, I made forward progress.

Since one of errands took me right past my mother’s home, in a reversal of how I organized my crochet day on Monday and Tuesday, the first I project I worked on was the Fantascot so that while I was in the vicinity, I could pop in and see how it fit before I began adding the upper and lower ripple edges.

The first thing I did was finish weaving in all of the ends and joining all but one seam of the Fantascot:

crochetbug, crochet squares, crochet circles, crochet stripes, crochet strips, crochet flowers, granny squares, textured crochet squares, crochet ascot
The Fantascot with all of the strips completed and before the ends are joined

Next, I completed the one remaining seam.

Here is one side of the Fantascot:

here is the other:

and here is a detail of the Catherine’s wheel strip which I loved making so much and found so engaging, I was ready to abandon all my holiday projects and just make row after row of this stitch pattern:

Instead, once I got home from my mother’s (and the Fantascot looks as though it will fit perfectly), I pulled out my chart and got to work on the six sudoku afghan:

and while I am not yet convinced I will be able to get this project done by bedtime on December 24, I will give it a try.

  1. Your fantascot looks delightful! Going to have a go at one of these in the post-Christmas period I think! I’ve downloaded the pattern but not looked through it properly yet. Hope it’s not too complicated for less virtuoso crocheters like myself! Your mother will love it, I’m sure. Happy Advent, Lesley! E x
