Thanking all of my lovely Instagram friends who take the time to leave me supportive comments and likes.. I use Instagram to share my #wip's and "ufo's.. whether it be painty or woolly!!! I also, enjoy taking part in a popular photo challenge on IG. I LOVE Instagram!!!
A week ago, early one Saturday morning I don't know how or even why.. it's not like I needed a new project!!!! but long story short I found myself on a gorgeous blog looking at a tutorial pattern and knew straight away it was something I wanted to try!
I grabbed my bag of woolly scraps and started straight away! ............... One week later and I have made a gorgeous little blanket for my little boy!
It's not my first blanket... I normally make blankets to fit at least three of us so you can imagine they can get quite heavy especially, when you are only 6 er 7 now!!!! And trying to snuggle into them alone !!! So this one is little person size!!!
I think with being a Gemini I get bored quite quickly with granny squares. I love trying different patterns and even the odd hexagonal... oh how I just knew I would fall behind with the 2014 crochet challenge... I should have stuck to squares!!! I think that was one of the reasons I was browsing the internet last Saturday morning!!! I found a granny square with a difference.... it's a GIANT granny square... and... and... much to my little boys surprise... it's a square with a circle in the middle..... it was met with a Wooow!!! Off my little boy... I know I have a few more precious years left with him before he gets too big for Mummy's interests so I am really enjoying his company... as always :-))
I so wanted to write this blog post and link to Kate's blog Signed With an Owl where I found her gorgeous Squaring the Big Circle Tutorial. Kate has very kindly allowed me to link back to her post. I hope you like her blog and creations as much as I do... I am now in the process of making a Minecraft blanket.. hehe..
Here are some photos of my finished blanket. The size including the border is approx. 28" x 28" The border is taken from the Granny stripe blanket over at Attic24. Another of my favourite blogs!
Here is my finished blanket. Please remember it is made entirely from scraps.. had I thought about a colour scheme it would have taken me a lot longer than a week to make it.... I would probably still be deciding on colours !!!!
..... the border....
I had sooooo much fun with this pattern.... Thank you again Kate so much, I know it is a pattern I will use again and again and again! xxxxxx
Happy hooking! Gez xx
