crochet blanket goodness


I've just finished my second crochet blanket.  I did give you a little look the other day but now that it's fully finished, border on and even the ends all woven in I thought we'd have a little bit more show and tell.

I just adore the ripply border, especially since I didn't use any patterns, I just made it up as I went along.

Here is is out in the sunshine, I think it gives you a much better indication of the vibrancy of the colours. 


And here of course with the 'big sister' rug - the Garden Grannies.


Still haven't finished weaving in the ends on the Garden Grannies - I'll get there eventually.


These are the remains of the original 200g balls I purchased from Bendigo Woollen Mills.  Top row - Lavender, Orange, Citrus.  Middle row - Aquarium, Leaf, Stone.  Bottom row - Cream, Delphinium, Pink.  'Luxury' range 100% wool yarn worked on a 4mm hook.  The Giant Granny blanket is 110cms square and the Garden Grannies is 105cm square.b
