Finished: Garden Granny Blanket

 

I love a granny blanket. So simple to make. I found this yarn in the clearance bit of the local craft store and loved it. I love pink, blue, and green together. This worked up so fast, I’m not sure how. Maybe I was just really enjoying the project. This took about 400g of yarn and came to a very decent size. I gave it a nice ruffled border and called it a day. I’m not sure on the brand of the yarn as it didn’t have a wrapper. It was amazing to work with and incredibly soft. This would be great for a baby blanket. I enjoy making simple blankets with beautifully coloured yarn. It’s so relaxing to not have to count a pattern out every row.

Finished: Beth Blanket

A few weeks ago my friend Beth asked me to make her a blanket. Normally I don’t make commissioned blankets, but for her I made an exception. She choose the pattern and the colours of the yarn, I just had to make the rest- simple! The yarn took some time to come from England, but was amazingly soft. I love working with Stylecraft yarn. The pattern was a simple granny but with colour variations. I love patterns so trying to make things ‘random’ was a challenge. I tried to not think about it too much. I used the join as you go method for the final rounds. The border was two rounds of pink followed by a white scolloped border. This blanket took forever. It is one of my favourites though and well worth the effort.
