One More Blanket...

 

 
 
Bargain yarn.
What to make?
Another blanket?
Attic 24 Granny Stripe.
Sixteen weeks.
Many hours.
Lots (and lots) of ends to sew in.
Growing each week.
Getting very heavy.
Finished today.
Birthday gift for Big Sis.
She loved it.
So did I.
I'm so, so glad, that I learnt to crochet.

Moving on...

  10. The colours go together really well. I love it. I made the same blanket but I made it way to wide. It fits the whole length of the couch! ! We still snuggle under it all together and do some knitting.
