Old Project

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.

Granny Square Blanket For Chris

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.

Remember This?????

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!!!!

Projects I Started In 2012 and Want To Finish In 2013 Part 4

I still haven't finished my multi-coloured Japanese Flower blanket yet.
Somewhere in October I just put down my hook and I couldn't seem to get back into it again.
There is not so far to go really I'll be getting back to it soon.
2013 is going to be a great crochet year!! Finishing old projects and planning new ones.
Well, to be honest I already have a couple planned already.

Projects I Started In 2012 and Want To Finish In 2013 Part 2

2. Five Round Granny Square Blanket

This is going to be a very colourful granny squared blanket joined with black.
The black will be the 5th round.
So as you can see in the centre of the photo I did one square with the black to try it out.
I'm using up loads of my odd bits of leftover yarn for this one.

First Real Post of 2013

It's something I do at the end of the year, that is look back and review the old one.
Well, I was going to go off on a negative note about how I've hardly finished anything in 2012.
And that I haven't blogged much.
But then I thought, " come on Chris not so negative it's a new year with new possibilities right?"
So, firstly I'm going to take a look at the things I did finish.

The Things I did Finish

Two blankets!!!
No need to be negative is there.
Although 2012 was the year where starting a project seemed more interesting than finishing it.

I have five projects on going at this moment!!!
But more about them in the coming days.
2013 will be the year I finish them!!!

Love & A Happy New Year to you all!!!
