Thank you

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my 2012 blanket. Considering it was made from an assortment of balls of unwanted wool it turned out not too badly. Blue has never been a favourite colour for me and I wanted to use up my blue wools so I teamed them with green as I so admired this blanket's colours.

Thank you to those of you who haven't commented here before. It's great to know that you are there and I really appreciate your views.

In reply to a question, my blanket was started at the beginning of the year. One New Year resolution was to crochet a square a day but I got a little carried away. There was no real plan in mind I just went with the flow, knowing that I wanted a blanket that was 'different'. I did not know how big the blanket was going to be, I just stopped when I thought it was big enough and the patterns just worked themselves out. Not having enough blues and greens I incorporated other cold colours plus any whites I had lurking around.

 Information on how to crochet the different shapes can be found on Youtube or on this blog. There was only one small shape that was really odd that I had to crochet to fit.

I've crocheted some more of the rose squares, just because I wanted to. I've no idea what I'll be doing with them yet. My idea at the moment is to have as many different coloured roses as possible. It's a start, anyhow. I wonder how this one will turn out!

  1. Inspired by your lovely crochet projects I have followed a tutorial and can now do a passable granny square. Keep showing your lovely things I may get inspired to get back into more crafting.

    1. Thanks Jill, I've edited it out now. I must read through what I've written before I press go. I think I wanted to say that the blue has now grown on me and I'm more willing to put it into other projects. Sft will be pleased!

  5. You completed the blanket is such a short space of time, I'm still plodding on with my granny square blanket, though I have to say that I've been knitting more just recently so the crochet has been put on the sidelines for the time being.
