FO Friday – Aragorn square

Happy Friday everyone!

I have exciting news, my thesis is due on Sunday but I have started the submission process today so I am officially done writing my thesis! It is really a great feeling and I’m so glad it’s done.

But of course you’re here for the crafty bits and I also have something quite exciting to share. Slowly but surely I am tackling the end of the LOTR blanket this year, and I have finished another square, Aragorn!

This means I only have 2 more squares to go before I can join my blanket. After over 2 years in the making I’m almost going to be as happy to finish it than I am to finish my thesis!

I have had issues staying motivated for such a long project, which is a shame because I love graphs and I would love to make more in the future. Do you have a secret to stay motivated on huge projects?

Have a great weekend!

LOTR CAL – Gandalf’s pipe square

Happy Monday lovely readers!

It has been a while but I have finally finished square 9 of my LOTR CAL! I have been seriously distracted by other projects but I hope that I can get back in the groove and finally get done with this huge blanket!

It’s a very short one today because I’m actually at a conference all week and so I won’t have much time for blogging. I do hope you all have a great week and I’ll try to be back on Wednesday with some plane knitting updates 🙂

LOTR CAL – Gandalf the Grey

Happy Friday!

I have finished yet another square on my LOTR graphghan CAL. Gandalf the Grey is ready to save Middle Earth. You can find all my LOTR related posts by clicking on the LOTR CAL tab at the top of my blog or by following this link.

I still have 6 squares to go, and I’d really like to get finished by May to enter the finished blanket in a craft show! Better get hooking faster!

LOTR CAL – Sam square

Happy Wednesday readers,

With the holidays well over, I didn’t really have any excuse to delay my LOTR squares any longer. 

I have finished Samwise the brave this week. 


Hopefully I can keep up with those and get the CAL squares finished by the end of the year, as there are already so many other graphghan CALs I’d like to participate in 🙂 

In the meantime, happy crocheting!

LOTR CAL week 13

Happy Sunday!

Today is our final week in the LOTR crochet along! I kept the best for last (in my opinion): Legolas! I bet it’s most people favourite elf 🙂 He is pretty kickass in both the LOTR trilogy and in the Hobbit trilogy.

Without further ado, here is the graph for Legolas.

Happy Sunday!

This week on the LOTR Crochet along, we have Aragorn joining us! I don’t know about you, but Aragorn has always been one of my favourite characters. That is, just after a well-known elf who will soon be joining us 😉

The beard was pretty hard to get right on this one, but I’m happy with how it turned out 🙂

We have reached week 10 of the LOTR crochet along, which means that there are only 3 weeks left after this one! How exciting!

The last 4 weeks will be the heroes of each race, Gimli for the dwarves, Aragorn for the men and Legolas for the elves, as well as the last corner panel. You will have a choice for this one between Arwen’s star and the tree of Gondor.

This week though is dedicated to Gimli, son of Gloin.
