The finished Granny blanket!

Hello everyone out there- I hope you are all well and dandy!

I only have a small but lovingly crafted item to show you today – the collaborative knitty and crochety (I know – not a word!) Granny blanket. Twenty squares of muted gorgeousness! I’m so pleased with how it turned out.


The cream outline of each square helped the blanket to gel together and the delicate wide border sets it off beautifully. Don’t ask me how I did it because rather daftly I made it up and didn’t write it down (will I ever learn?).  So once again (like the grey baby sampler blanket) I won’t be able to check back when I want to use it for something else – grrr!


Here’s an up close shot of the border. I do love it lots. This blanket has surprised me – I never expected it to work out as well as it has!


It’s also very soft and snuggly and a stash buster. I used an assortment of wool for this creation – some Debbie Bliss no less (the muted pink and the brown) as well as others that I has squirrelled away for a rainy day!

All that remains now is to post it to my gorgeous Granny!

Until next time, I’ll be nipping to the post office.
