Yes folks it is finely out, the wait is over. Super Mario Odyssey hits the shelves today and if reports are right it will not be there for long, going fast. Which also means so has the blanket. Super Mario Odyssey Blanket
There has been a lot of interest in the blanket from near and wide, and the patterns to go with it. Do you think it is harder to concentrate on crocheting when you are working to a deadline. or does it keep your mind focused on the job in hand? The wife has been working to a deadline to get this blanket finished and it is. Ginger the blanket thief was up to her usual tricks all the time the blanket was being put together – she was sitting on it.
We have had some fun in the making of the Super Mario Odyssey blanket. One of the problems we had was with tension!! Because some of the blocks were not all the same size (the reason for this was that there was a lot of work in some of the smaller blocks) after they were crocheted which makes blocking difficult to say the least. It does not help when the blocking expert (me) decided to block one as twenty-four by twenty-three when it should be twenty-three by twenty-four (oops). It took all of my talent as a blocker to reverse the situation. Do you ever get that were the tension is different on one block to the next?
The Mario game itself is according to experts the best Mario game ever and because of all the hype, we all know what lots and lots of children will be looking for this Christmas (not just the game but the console as well). You can also give them their own Super Mario Odyssey blanket (go on, you know they will love there own blanket to go along with their Nintendo Switch).
Well that is it for this week, Keep on crocheting.
