I'm back with a ta-dah ....my latest baby blanket . I think many of you who blog will know how this sharing is such a wonderful part of being creative. At home this sort of make would go largely unnoticed but here there are lots of like minded lovelies who see colourful crochet through the same eyes as me....it really makes me happy to look at these pictures and I hope you feel at bit happy/inspired by them too.
Here is my "Elmer" blanket , once again it's inspiration came from HERE .
It's made up of 99 three round granny squares joined as you go.Once again the yarn is stylecraft acrylic. I love the way it goes so well with my baby ripple....also made from mostly the same colours of this yarn......
In case you were wondering there are 19 colours in total and they are listed here:-
Plum,Raspberry,Saffron,Shrimp,Sherbet,Spring Green,Turquoise,Violet and Wisteria.
I made a border using six rounds of granny clusters and a picot edge to finish. .........
Oooooooh, I always love a washing line shot and I'm really happy with the way this blanket has turned out.
I even love the back, were the little spikes created by the join as you go method are more visible . This effect kind of reminds me of a jig-saw.........
The blanket measures 34inches by 28inches ( 86 x 71 cm) and will be put in my online shop as soon as I've made more stock to open one :0)
I'm hoping to raise some funds for the cancer charity I've chosen to run for this year.
The weather has been pretty grey and wet here this week but I managed to get a sunny picture yesterday morning , when the sun popped out for a few minutes.......
Yay, colourful crochet in the sun , what a happy sight!
Have a great Sunday .
