granny stripe blanket (update)

A perfect afternoon, in front of the tv, cup of tea and curled up under my granny blanket. Stipe 35 now of about 60 but possibly 90 if I want it big enough for my double bed. It is a huge craft project to take on, quite easy but takes a long time for me to do just one stripe let alone 90! But the more it grows the more I want to crochet, so that's a good thing isn't it?




I'm not exactly following a pattern, you find the blog I found my inspiration on here. I am now following the same colour sequence as the previous 30 rows so that it looks more uniform, well that's the plan. And the thing I love about making a blanket - you get to use it even before it is finished! Right I'm off to crochet another row. Enjoy the rest of your weekend x

And here are some photos of my first blanket, that should have been a starting chain of 240 but it came out a lot smaller (I can now count and use markers!)
