Blanket

You may remember me starting a blanket ready for use this winter. Well, it is nearly done. I was going to make it 8 x 8 squares but we now have two armchairs rather than a settee so decided to make it smaller, 6 x 8 squares.

Also, the chairs are in a new colour so I am in the process of adding that colour in wool to the blanket. The squares before the first top line of the new colour added:

A section with one line added - the other line going in the other direction will be done in the next few days. The new colour is also around the edge:

    1. She shows stitch by stitch and also tells you exactly what she is doing for each bit of the stitch. I made a few mistakes but just kept pulling back, catching up again and re-watching the video. Within a few hours, over a day or so, I finished my first square.

  3. Very nice! I think it might be a while before I tackle crocheting. I am currently trying to teach myself how to knit.

  4. It's so pretty. You have my admiration as I still haven't cracked crochet. It just feels so alien to me :(
