Crochet Squares update

Hello

I know this is naughty but I thought I would have a break in making the squares and start sewing together the first blanket.  Here they are all laid out ready to be stitched.

Great photo bombing by my youngest who was helping to arrange them and who was very keen to try out his new blanket.  No pressure then!  Note the little puppies feet, never far away from me … bless him.

My little girl had to get in on the action as well but not quite so helpful.

Darning here I come.

Yellow Crochet Blanket

Hello

I have a project to share today which I have eventually finished after starting it some 9+ years ago when my 10 year old was a baby and I used to sit with him whilst he went to sleep.

For the last 9+ years it has been sat abandoned in a box as I got extremely bored of doing the motifs.  So I picked it up and decided to finish it.

I had to make about 10 more motifs, which took me an age as I had forgotten what to do.  On that basis I thought I would give up with the motifs and just crochet the remainder of the wool….much quicker!

I changed the stitch half way through the white section, firstly to relieve boredom and secondly as a design feature to add interest.

I always finish any blanket with a crochet border of a few rows of trebles and then a couple of rows of half trebles. I like to do this as it makes the edge a bit thicker and more defined.  As I was using up all the wool I actually got 4 rows of half trebles on this one.

The blanket turned out huge in the end, perfect for a double bed. Not so perfect for my naughty puppies feet though.

I hope you like it.

I wonder what else is lurking in my unloved and abandoned box (or boxes)?

TTFN.
