The value of handmade


The handmade things need time. You can be skillful and faster with the technique, you need time. And it is not only the time you spend in the final implementation. Previously you had to design it. The drawing, colors, measures… You’ve also selected the materials, you tested them. All this takes time. And I have the impression that time is not valued.

A few months ago I finished knitting this pure wool blanket. And, just curious, I wanted to know how long I spent crocheting it, not counting all the previous steps I mentioned earlier. I spent 30 hours with the crochet hook. Five hours is the maximum time that I could be followed crocheting, my wrists and tendons suffer too much.

Another point is the materials. As you know, I like working with natural fibres and high quality. For this blanket I used 100% wool from the Peruvian highlands. It is thick and soft. To crochet this blanket, 109 x 138 centimetres, I needed 12 balls of 100 grams each.
More than 1kg of wool!
Considering the value of the wool only, this blanket cost € 105.

What I value most is the satisfaction of knitting the blanket to my liking. Next winter I will smoothly warm 🙂

His mom and dad choose Victòria Peñafiel to portray him in his first days of life.
I attended the whole session: simplicity, gentleness, kindness, peace and elegance, just what I see in her photos. With patience, unhurried, respecting the rhythms of the newborn and a lot of empathy with his parents.
I knitted a sky blue hat for the occasion. A classic. 😉
