And I did manage to finish my baby blanket this weekend. I really enjoyed making the crocheted daisy granny squares. It's quite a simple pattern but has a lovely effect. And then I tried the joining method that Heather gives a great tutorial for on her fabulous blog, The Patchwork Heart. And please forgive the overload of photos!
I loved using all the different colours, and then used white for the joining rows.
I've used Stylecraft Special DK yarn, which I love using - great value and a great finish. It seems to wash and wear well too. The finished blanket measures about 40" x 28", and I've added a sweet edging to it.
If you've never tried crocheting, please give it a go! It's such a relaxing but rewarding craft!
I hope the new owner of the blanket likes it. In fact, I may make another one for me - it's a great 'stash-buster' of a pattern, to use up all the leftover yarn that it's so easy to acquire!
Thanks for looking - and thank you as always for your comments and support.
