A blanket, and a giveaway!

This is the latest blanket commission to be completed. I love the rich colours that were chosen for me to work with – it looked really vibrant when finished.

I’d not made such a detailed blanket before – each square had 7 rounds, there were 15 colours in all, and I wasn’t looking forward to weaving the ends in! I decided to crochet batches of 10 squares, then weave the ends in as I went, which seemed like a very slow process but had to be better than spending 5 days at the end sewing them all in – I ended up with over 200g of leftover ends!

Halfway through the blanket I needed to order more of a couple of colours I’d run out of, and while waiting for them to be delivered I played about with making some bunting. It has 6 triangles, with pretty pointy edging on each, and although the photo of it up at the window hasn’t captured the colours properly, it is the same colours as the blanket.

I think if I had a little girl there would be lots of this bunting about her room, but as I don’t, I’m offering this as a giveaway 😀

Just comment if you’d like it! (There are no rules such as RT or ‘Share’ but if you’d like to, that would be great :D) I’ll draw a random name in a fortnight or so.

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered 🙂

Lovely new fabric!

Got some new fabric today (to add to the stack I already have..)

Cherries, tattoo fabric, animals, skulls.. oh yes, and a definate leaning towards red lately! I am particularly taken with the strawberries 😀

Now to get busy making.. First some pirate bunting I think!
