Crocheting Update


No card today but an update on crocheting, I've just realised I'm a bit OCD and have to finish what I start before I start something else. Which means I'm not making animals or minions till I finish the granny square blanket but then I start another because I can make the squares in the car journey to MIL. I suspect when I finish the new one I've just started the last time we visited MIL, it will be time to visit again and new one will be start for that journey.
The pattern is out of the 200 Crochet blocks for Blankets and I joined using SC.


I was experimenting with a frilly border not sure I acutally like it and I had to alter it slightly so it would lay flat but have Hubby said you not making it for anyone you know and it looks fine so I left it but will do a different edge.
I'm now making a baby's blanket and my squares are quite a bit smaller but I shouldn't have to make it quite so big.

This is beautifully made Debby and I love the lighter and darker tones of each colour you have used together with the white and that frilly edge is really pretty.

Crotchet always reminds me of a Dear MIL who gave us a few of her crotchet blankets, I know this will be a treasured heirloom as ours have become.
