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
