Mid month Monday and the final crochet blanket update!!
For our new readers, the full story is here.
But why don't I recap anyway :)
In the summer I decided to crochet blankets for my nieces for Christmas.
They started out as beautiful coloured balls of wool, all sitting in a big basket.
It was fun working out all the different colour combinations and how many of each I would need.
Putting them together for me was the tough bit but it was also exciting to see how the finished product would look!
224 squares being laid out on a piece of calico.
448 squares make two very pretty blankets!!
lol, it's addictive!!
This one is slightly different, each square is made up of 6 rows not 4. And i'm also substituting the pink for red :)
For me, this was a HUGE achievement because I am a great starter of projects but not a great finisher.
My DH didn't think I would pull it off, but has since told me how proud he is of me. That kinda makes it even more special!!
If you've not tried crochet yet, it's a must.
Oh and before I forget, I must show off this beautiful blanket made by such a lovely lady whose blog I love to read!!
It's so easy and really, if I can do this anyone can :)
