Sarah London's Wool-Eater Crochet Along!

If you crochet, you are probably familiar with Sarah London.  She has written some fantastic crochet patterns and books...and her use of color is FANTASTIC!  I love looking at all of her awesome pics on Pinterest!

I'm a little late coming to the Wool-Eater Crochet Along...I didn't know if I'd be able to keep up...but, I decided that even if I fell behind I'd like to make one of these amazing creations!

So...here's my progress on my very own Wool-Eater Blanket!  (I was technically four weeks late for the start of the CAL, but Sarah's said to work at your own pace...so I'm not stressing about 'catching up!)  I opted to try her new Oblong Wool-Eater pattern...


So far I LOVE the pattern...it's a bit tricky at first, but once you get going it's really pretty easy to follow!  The instructions are written in Australian/UK terms, though...so watch for that!  ;)

My blanket is measuring about 18" wide by 35" long, and I've completed 8 rows so far!  I'm using up some odd balls of yarn that i have in sort of neutral earth tones...and a hint of teal.


I love the texture and feel of the afghan...it's nice and thick...but not too bulky.


Wanna make one of your own?

It's absolutely GORGEOUS, Sarah! You are SO talented! I can only crochet, not knit, and I can't ever seem to follow a pattern properly (I keep messing up), so I don't think I would ever be able to get to that level! -Shirley

I wish had the time and brain to be able to make one of these. Hopefully if I get a bit better in the summer I might make one. Your looks fantastic!

That is beautiful, I love the pattern. I used to crochet, but I just haven't had the time. I still have all my stuff, so maybe someday I'll get back into it. I found you via the Gingersnap Crafts Link Party.

It's beautiful! I haven't crocheted for years, and am only a novice...I'd love to try this though. Little Bit from DecorateWithaLittleBit.com

Howdy! this is gorgeous. I found you b/c I was googling this pattern to see what others were making. I'm working on my blanket with ONLY stash yarn. I'm trying to use it all up. I'm getting to the point where I'm changing colors in the rows (sad), and the pattern isn't quite as lovely as the well-planned ones like yours.

I think my goal is that if I finally finish the Roseanne granny square afghan I started in 2007 (yes, 2007 — I only work on it when I don't have any other projects going, and I'm a craftster who sweatshops items for craft shows in bulk) ... then I'm going to plan out one of these and spend the $$ on yarn to complete it.
