Oh I am pleased to be able to say, that I have completed this blanket.
I started this a year ago...........really!!!!!
One whole year to hook up a blanket, pitiful.
Seriously though, I've put this down far too often & a month ago
finally got my act together, to put this together.
I had wanted to use up all my colours & decided on this easy pattern for it.
May be easy, but all those wee squares can be a bit mundane after
a while. Now though, I'm a happy chicken, cause I did it,
I brought the project to completion.
Did use a lot of my colours, but still have loads left. Used more cream than
anything else, I do love cream in a blanket.
It seems to soften even the sharpest colours.
This will blend in anywhere in my house, but I might just keep it as a pressie
for someone special in the future.............MIGHT!!!
Thought to have it tah dahed last week, but the border drove me to distraction.
I wanted a real nice finish on it cause I think it
deserved to be finished well.
Tried two different borders before finally settling with this.
A lot of frogging went on & other things "not to be mentioned".
This came about through pure chance & I really do
like its simplicity, though it took three evenings to work up.
So at last TAH DAHHHHHH!!
So now its on to other things, I couldn't touch anything else all of
last week until I had done with my blankie
I love you dear blanket, you've been a constant companion these last two months
On now to bridesmaid dresses, fabrics have arrived & today
I start drafting pattern blocks....JOY!!!!
This evening, a new crochet project, prob another blanket.
Can't have too many.
Seriously though, they just about look good anywhere.
See you soon
Thanks for popping by
