Remember this wool:

craft 001


Well, this is what it has turned into, ta-dah!



During the course of this year Burnice, Tash and I have crotcheted our way through this book.

  craft 003

We chose squares to crotchet each month.  So most evenings this year you could find me crotcheting in front of the tv!  A great way to spend an evening.  We have ended up with 100 squares, all different (well actually there are 2 that are the same, can you spot them?).  Because they are all different they ended up slightly different sizes, so the finished blanket is a bit lumpy.   I crotcheted mine together with cream wool, and did a simple double crotchet border in cream and then green.  My idea was to have green as the dominant colour and to make it look like a garden.   I am so happy with this colourful blanket and am looking forward to the cooler weather so I can snuggle under it.  It is very warm!

It's stunning! I've been poring over blankets on Pinterest, admiring all the ones put together with different blocks. You are inspiring me: I thought I was going to do a ripple next and now I'm not so sure

That's amazing. You must be chuffed to bits with it.
