I finished my latest blanket last night...and I really, really ❤️ it.
It's just a simple granny square blanket but it was so relaxing to work on a straight forward project in the evenings after work. This only took me a few weeks to make and I have to say that I was sad when it was finished!
It's a good sized blanket, big enough to wrap around myself and big enough to wrap around my 8 year old daughter at least twice! It's cosy, cheerful and colourful...can you tell that I really love it?!
I had a little break from using my usual Stylcraft Special DK which is usually always my first choice for making blankets. Instead I used mainly James C Brett DK, simply because when I went into my local yarn shop these were the colours I liked best. I think it was mainly baby yarn. It was nice yarn to work with, lovely and soft and the colours are great.
Even better is that I have a fair bit of the yarn in each colour left so I'm planning to make another starburst blanket as I enjoyed making the starburst squares for my island blanket so much.
I don't think I will ever tire of crocheting blankets...I have a couple of baby blankets to make and G has requested that I make him a camping blanket. So plenty to keep me going for the next few months!
Wishing you all a lovely week.
