Another cold day here in Suffolk - I had to brave a quick cycle to visit my parents earlier and the journey there was in the very cold head wind - the sort that completely takes your breath away. If the weather forecast is to be believed we should get a good covering of snow this weekend - tomorrow I'm off to buy some thermals!!
Now I've a finished project I want to share with you - normally I'd head out into the conservatory to take pictures as the light is best there but not today - its just too cold out there. Instead I opted for the warmer front room where the light isn't as good.
I started this Giant Granny Blanket when we were camping in Dorset in the summer - finally the last round was finished yesterday!!
Its been a usable size for a while now - it got lots of use when I was stuck on the sofa in plaster. I knew it needed finishing before the yarn got used for other projects! So here we are - 43 rounds of trebles and a final 2 rounds of doubles. One snuggly and cozy blanket - just perfect for keeping warm on the sofa these cold nights and for taking camping when the days start to warm up.
I'm glad I had enough yarn to finish the edges of with the doubles - it makes it look really neat.
A pile of squishy crochet loveliness.
Now in my last post, I promised to share the tale of a little mix-up with you. Quite simple - 2 families living an hour apart - one date arranged for lunch. 2 families both sitting at home wondering where the other family were. One phone call - disaster both think the other family is coming to them!! We jumped into the car and amazingly made it there in under an hour! It turns out, I was right - they should have been at ours! Oh well - nothing got wasted. Sundays buffet lunch became dinner Monday night and my boys are happily working their way through this victoria sandwich I made!!
Right back to the crochet I head - time to try and finish a few more squares towards my 100 square blanket (currently at 70 squares).
See you soon - keep warm
