As mentioned already, I have been finishing things. Here are a few more pictures and notes just in case you haven’t seen enough crochet blankets yet.
This the ‘Rather Pink’ Ripple blanket using the same pattern as the one I showed you previously.
This a smaller cot sized blanket made from two different squares – I am not quite sure what I will do with this one yet but it was nice to make. I used cotton yarn for this one. I think it will lay flatter after washing and blocking but I love the patterns in the squares and think I will use them again.
Here is one for a laugh – it is not to everybody’s taste I admit (or mine really) but it was one of the first things I made when I rediscovered crochet a couple of years ago so was good practice. I am not keen on the grey and wish I had chosen either black or cream now but too late! It is also acrylic and unfortunately (and expensively)I have become a bit of a yarn snob since discovering merino and other lovely natural fibres.
Last but not least here is my traditional granny square blanket which I am rather fond of even though it is acrylic. I enjoyed making this one and think I may do another sometime soon but I do already have three other projects started which I will blog about shortly when there is a little more to show you.
