Look What I Made: White Granny Stripe Blanket

This blanket definitely took longer than 10 days. How an earth did I finish the black granny stripe blanket in 10 days? This one is a little wider and has three more colours than the black granny stripe. It’s warm and cosy, and bright and cheerful. I love the weight of Panda Magnum Soft 8ply, it feels heavier and thicker than Stylecraft DK but the two work well together. This granny stripe pattern by Lucy from Attic 24 creates nice dense stitches; the clusters of treble/double crochet stitches that make up the rows are closer together than your standard granny square.

Look What I Made: Eight-Colour Granny Square Throw

crochet granny squares afghan

Another project finished, and only a little (ok, two months) later than I planned. This eight-colour throw is for my grandmother who, I’m pleased to say, seems quite enamoured with it. I love this yarn and the colours were all in my stash. Next on the agenda is to finish The Hodge Podge. Then a present for a baby due in January, a blanket for an October 2013 wedding and oh, maybe even a little something for myself.
