2 of my new crochet club members have gone great guns with their granny squares since I taught them only a few short days ago. This is what craft is about – sharing skills and a love of creating. Good job girls.
So I have a couple of new projects underway. This top one is a blanket I am making for a raffle. Last year the rainbow swirl blanket I made the for the raffle was a huge success. The lady who won it approached me just recentlyand offered to buy the wool for the next one as a way of ‘Paying it forward’. She is so in love with her blankie that she wanted someone else to feel the same way. How nice is that! So I am now about half way through this one and am enjoying it very much.
This spotty one is Holly’s. I have never made her a crochet blanket! So I began the little circles at Christmas time. 70 in total they are about 10 cm each. Then I went around each circle to make it into a square. Then I stitched all of them together and edged. Here it is in it’s finished glory. I have to say it is actually one the best ones I have done. So cheery and pretty. It was a massive undertaking and took many hours of work. I have a sore left arm and shoulder, probably a bit of RSI, but getting better!
