I Love Colourful Crochet


I like making crocheted blankets and have a couple (ok, I have about 4 if you're counting) of my own. When I discovered Middle Daughter would like one I couldn't wait to get started on another. :)




I wouldn't have minded keeping it for myself. It does match the duvet cover quite well doesn't it?


The fringing is the part I least enjoy, it's very fiddly trying to get all the strands the same size.


 So I gave it a haircut!


Now that my stock of colourful yarn is very much depleted I need to go out and buy some more for my next project.YaY!

What a gorgeous blanket and such joyful colours. No wonder you wanted to keep it. I don't think I would have had to patience to add fringing.

It's wonderful, it must have taken you hours and hours. I hope you enjoy restocking your yarn!
