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.
