So here we are with the end product of the CAL, I know that a lot of you have finished your blankets ages ago and this blanket was a long time in the making, but I am so happy I finally finished this one!
This was a BIG blanket to undertake, and if I am perfectly honest I probably bit off more than I could chew with the CAL, so I apologise for the disorganised nature of the CAL, but at least we made it too the end!
Anyway, want to see how mine turned out?
Ready for a colour burst to brighten your day?
Here are a few photos to show you the final blanket in all it's glory!...........
.........spread out on our bed.........
....one reason this is such a big blanket is so it would hang over the sides of the bed and drape nicely.
It does do this! Yay!
I love the look of this blanket all fold up, with all the colours working together, so lovely!!
I think the colours look better when it is folded like this than when it is all spread out, well maybe not better as such, but just as good anyway !
This is a heavy blanket as you can imagine,and used up lots of wool.
(I sell this in my shop if anyone is wondering where they can get the same colours :) )
It is great to get something off my to do list and put it in my finished projects list, it doesn't happen often!
Well that's it for the CAL, I'm officially signing off on my first ever crochet along, all the instructions are on their own page so they are easy to find if anyone ever wants to make one of these for themselves. Thanks for joining in and I hope you had fun!
So, time to get stuck into something else, I have some Christmas crochet lined up next, can't wait to get started on it!
