I have actually finished the ‘base’ of the Catanghan and I’m happy with it. I finished it a while ago but the weather has been horrendous and so there have been no opportunities to get a photo of it, but here it is in all of its glory!


By the ‘base’ of the blanket, I mean the basic Catan set-up. For those who know the game: I plan to add a seafarers-esque extension which will make it large enough to cover a king-sized bed. For those who aren’t familiar with the game: I’ll be adding islands around this and also extending the blue sea hexes. However that is a job for another year day. Right now it’s a nice size to cuddle under and as it’ll get wrecked on our bed in our tiny bedroom I think it will remain that way until we move to a bigger place where it can be enjoyed without fear of it getting damaged!


Catanghan Update


This is what I have been doing on the blanket the past couple of days, whilst I haven’t made new hexes I have been sewing in the peskies and stitching the hexes together. I’m so glad with the progress, I’m stitching it together with UK double crochet stitch using stylecraft special in Parchment.

November plans

I have things that I need to get done today but between a new baby rat sleeping on me and my lone rat sleeping on me, I can’t get them done. So I’m on here instead! But, here is a photo of the baby rat, her name is Sikozu and she’ll be joining our girls ASAP.


I said last night that I’d post about my plans for next month, they are as follows:

  1. Finish the Catan Blanket Hexes
  2. Attempt NaNoWriMo

That’s basically it. I have a fanfiction idea that I’ve been playing with for a long while that really needs writing down, I haven’t written anything since I was a teen so this should be interesting! I also want to get Nick’s blanket done in time for Christmas instead of slacking, so my goals this month consist of two very big, creativity-based projects.
