Getting Cosy with a Crocodile Stitch

One of my winter projects that is coming along is my new lap blanket.  It still has a little while until it's going to keep my feet warm though.

I'm still a bit of a beginner crocheter, so luckily, once you've got the hang of it, this one is really easy, though please don't ask to look at the edges of the blanket - they are super wonky!  I hate changing colours in crochet so just used a yarn that changed colour through the ball.

As it's a double thickness, I find this blanket uses up a lot of wool, but at the same time it has such a lovely weight and warmth to it.

The youtube tutorial I used to learn is here.

Do you have any seasonal crafty projects going on?
