Star Anise Crochet Blanket


Don’t let this lovely photograph fool you! You didn’t miss anything, the Star Anise Blanket is most definitely not finished yet. In fact, it hasn’t gotten any bigger since my last update. Gosh I didn’t realise it was so long ago!

No, this Star Anise Blanket is folded up neatly and smally to be packed into a box for a few weeks. We’re moving house!

For the next few weeks I can look at these pictures and think how lovely it is, and let that motivate me to create some more hexgons in between packing and un-packing boxes. I’m sure I’ll find the time! 😛

Woolly loveliness.

I’ve had to pack up all my sewing things so there won’t be any new clothes for a little while. To minimise crafty withdrawals, I’ve put together a crochet travel kit:

And mapped out the point when the Star Anise Blanket got packed up:

Still lots to do.

Of course, me being me I actually have two crochet travel kits. There is this one, and another one that is a small box stuffed with at least 5 other projects. Plus there will be wool shops on the way. So I won’t be running out of crochet expressionism!

One more for the road:

Stay inspired!

  1. Hope your move goes well. This piece is beautiful. The idea of the travel kits is a great one. Whenever I travel I always make sure I have a project to work on. Can’t wait to see your finished project.

  2. Those colors are absolutely beautiful! I’m a travel crafter too but it drives my husband crazy when I’m crocheting a baby blanket when he’s driving and I’m not taking in the view. Good luck with the move, hopefully you can get back to your beautiful blanket soon.

    1. Thanks 🙂 I don’t know which box it’s in anymore, but I know exactly where the travel case is! Hehe we do a lot of our driving at night, so missing the view isn’t an issue – unless there’s a thunderstorm!

  3. This blanket is beautiful, I’m usually not into crochet but you have created something really beautiful here. I sOOoo love your blog – Alas that is only part of the reason I dropped by…….

    The reason I’m here is because I wanted to let you know that not only is your blog a huge inspiration to me, I wanted to thank you for all of your support, likes and comments on my blog. To show my appreciation I have nominated you for the ‘one lovely’ blog award!! because you deserve it! happy blogging
