After all that work I felt I deserved a wee treat craftwise and decided to do something frivilous. I had long fancied making a crochet blanket for my bed and decided to try out some granny squares. I had a few odds and ends of wool that I rescued when a friend was clearing out, so got to work on a wee blanket for baby Lollipop.
I have no idea what kind of wool it was but the colours went quite nicely. After making a few squares I realised I didn't have enough wool to make a blanket, so I made a wee mat for the windowsill. It looks nice with a spring vase of flowers.
I was really pleased as the granny squares were so quick to do and decided to look for a pattern for something bigger. A quick scout on pinterest brought a new blog for me. According to Matt has a similar colourbase to Attic 24 and as all my walls are white, bright colours fit in quite well.
I fell in love with Matt's granny square blanket and after a few days of telling myself I had lots of other things to do.....
|A parcel arrived!|
|Full of lovely colours!|
|20 of them!|
Work is progressing steadily and I've borrowed a friends yarn winder which makes the balls a little more manageable and they take up less space.
So hopefully I'll have more pics soon, have fun, xx
