I also made these door snakes to keep out the winter chill. They were easy to make - just long tubes of fabric filled with lentils and sewed closed at the end.
I was making good progress on the crochet baby blanket but realised it was slowly morphing into a trapezoid shape as I obviously wasn't starting a new row in the right spot. I seriously considered ditching the project altogether but faced it again last night after a few weeks break. I had to unravel about 2/3 of it. Argh! Now I have to do about 3 rows a day if I'm going to finish it in time!
