There isn't really a huge amount that can be said about a blanket which is just a big granny square so this is going to be a very picture heavy post!
I started making this blanket in January (although I have made 2 baby blankets in that time too) as I wanted something I could just sit and do without thinking about while watching television. A kind of break from creativity whilst being creative! It doesn't feel like it has taken that long to do and if I hadn't run out of wool I could have carried on indefinitely!
The wool I used is Rico Creative Cotton (Aran) from Wool Warehouse. This is a really nice wool for crochet which I also used for a few samples I made for my local Guides when we were doing crochet last term.
My friend, Kara, took these lovely pictures of my blanket at the beach on Saturday (she also took these amazing pictures). It was such a fantastic day and it really makes me appreciate what a beautiful area of the world we live in, so thank you very much Kara!
