Not been around for a while.
The last time I posted here I was hard at work on my son Tim's blanket.
A vintage colourful granny square blanket, joined with black.
And then on 11th July my daughter Ellen died, she was 30, she committed suicide.
So, my blog was the last thing on my mind after that.
I just wanted to let you know why I haven't been posting.
I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm crocheting again, so posts will follow soon.

Having finished my last project, the granny square blanket for my grandson Chris.
I'm back working on an old project I started last year.
(For which I had all the coloured grannies done by the way, I ask myself why I didn't finish it back then.)
So I'm making all these granny squares into a retro style multi coloured black granny square blanket.
I've started joining and have the first row done, that is the first of 12 rows.
They are four round squares for which I'd used up loads of leftover yarn.
And I'm going around them with black and then joining as I go with black.
So they end up being 6 round grannies.
And this blanket is for my son Tim.
I think this will be a quick one because all the coloured parts are already done.
Have a great weekend.

Last Thursday I finished this granny square blanket for my Grandson Chris.
It took me exactly six weeks to make.
I love the way it turned out and hope he likes it too.
I used 16 different colours all greens and blues for the first three rounds of the squares.
The 4th round is off white.
And the 5th and joining round is middle gray.
It's 9 squares wide and 14 squares long.
I also love the edging which I found here.
All with all I'm really pleased with the way it has turned out.
Now I'm really into granny squares again and I'm working on my Multi coloured black joined granny blanket I started last year.

Finished at last!!!!!!
Just before Christmas I stopped working on it and just couldn't seem to get back into it.
But I'm pleased to say I pulled myself together and have now finished it.
Here are some of the colour details.
The colours are abit deeper than in the photos.
And our cat Bo loves it and seems to think I made it just for her.
However, I didn't, it's for our granddaughter Elizabeth.
So I'll be sending it to her tomorrow together with my ripple blanket (above) which I'm giving to my daughter Sarah (Elizabeth's Mum).
I'm so glad it's finished at last!!!!
