A love of Afghans 


It’s no secret that I have an addictive personality, and you may have noticed that one of my obsessions is crocheted or knitted afghans.

I can’t crochet or knit, something I lament regularly.

Despite every crocheter telling me how ridiculously easy it is I just can’t get it. (Obviously I’m just dumb) One day I will master crochet, I will. 

Until that day comes, I will continue to scour the op shops for afghans and wooly rugs. I love them, and have amassed quite a collection!


I especially love the traditional granny square afghans. These two are my absolute favourites:


Here’s to the talented craftspeople who created these beautiful throws ❤

  1. I have just the same thing with crochet! I can knit (but can’t follow patterns!) but when I try crochet I just get in frustrated knots. But I love these blankets, and one day I hope to develop the patience to learn the craft! happy new year 🙂

      I’m glad it’s not just me! I can knit, but very badly and only in straight lines. Both my grandmothers taught me how to crochet as a child, but it didn’t stick. One day.
      Happy New Year to you too! ❤
