ta dah! My granny blanket is finished

After months of not touching this blanket, and my holiday getting closer it was time to crack on with the border. And ta dah it is finished, and over 6 weeks to go to my holiday. Now to tackle my other WIPs!

I decided to take it to Chatham Dockyard or rather the marina that is next to it for some dramatic photos. As the blanket will be used on the Broads it seemed fitting. And to be honest I can't think of a better place to be on a nice summers evening. I did get some odd looks walking around with my blanket! But it did make a conversation piece and I managed to enlist another person to the growing army of ladies joining in the 60milliontrebles!

Not only a beautiful blanket, a great finish. I love seeing it out on location, a fun post.

I had such fun taking these pictures and sat on a bench to crochet a few rows of my granny shrug. A perfect way to end the working day x
