Hello. It was a beautiful morning here today, the sun was shining and it was a little bit hazy in that Autumn kind of way, it was chilly and crisp, a perfect start to the day.
The morning sun shines brightly on my clothesline, showing my washing in all it's glory, so I thought I'd take as few photos of my mini granny square blanket that I finished last week. It looks so cheery in the sun. I ended up doing a random colour placement for the squares, it was getting too hard to try and organise a random pattern, so I just tried not to have the same colours right next to each other, although I can see I failed in a few spots.
I am so glad I darned the ends in as I went, it made sewing the squares together much easier, and once it was sewn up it was finished, without a heap of ends to tidy up.
Sooooo...... a few blanket facts for you,
* 14 rows of 11 squares =151 squares all together!
* Simple 2 round granny square pattern with a 3 round of sc to each square. 4mm hook.
*Colours used : 12 colours, Heirloom Colorworks 8ply and Baby wool 8ply,
1-2 balls of each colour
extra red for the border ( 3 rows of sc, very simple)
* Not a very big blanket (sorry, I haven't measured it!), maybe cot sized, or a knee rug.
Ummm...that's all I can think of at the moment!
I am very happy with this little blanket, it makes me smile, and the fact that it is actually completed is an added bonus! (Finally something to tick off my to do list!)
Hope you have a nice sunny day where you are too!
