granny blanket update

We've had some beautiful weather here in the UK so it was bound to rain at some point. I'm not complaining, because my squash plants will love this and it saves me watering them (more time for crochet!) I took the opportunity to sit down last night in front of the tv, hubby went to bed early, to have some lovely crochet time

border time

I managed to sew in the last of the ends on my holiday blanket last night whilst simultaneously adding the first row of the border (like you do). I have to say I'm amazed at how straight the edges are and that I can see the finishing line now. So satisfying crocheting your own blankets in the summer to keep you warm during the winter.

love my new knitted basket

Here are a few photos of this colourful creation. I hope to finish this soon.

Stunning colours on your finish, just what you need in early August a warm blanket for these cool nights.

it is a beautiful array of colour, perfect for those cool evenings that I am trying to avoid thinking about just yet.

The blanket's looking lovely. I've just been catching up on what's been going on lately and I love the duck egg granny square blanket too. I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, they do give us a fright at times, don't they? It's always worrying and stressful too when our loved ones end up in hospital but I'm glad to hear that he's on the mend. I had to laugh at you downloading Pokemon Go, anything for a distraction.
