A Meadow Blanket for Spring!

 It's beautiful sunshine here again today - thank goodness - but definitely on the chilly side. But from inside looking out, it's fab - haha! 

I wanted to make a blanket for a special friend for a 'big' birthday, and decided to join in with the Meadow CAL from Attic24, starting in January this year. Yesterday, we were finally able to meet up (albeit outside for a joint walk & alfresco lunch with our dogs and partners) and swap long overdue Christmas pressies, and I could also gift her the finished blanket! 

Made with Stylecraft SSDK, it's crocheted in a type of 'twisted treble' stitch, that makes for a warm and snuggly blanket with a lovely soft drape

Unfortunately it's not the time of year for a photogenic 'meadow' shot, so I tried a 'garden' photo with the daffodils instead! 

I love the colour shades as they move through the blanket from the flowery/grasses colours, to the soft summer skies shades

But of course, as is always the case in this house, when I try to take any sort of 'arty' photo (in the garden or the house', a certain furry intruder likes to photobomb...

Anyway, please excuse the amount of photos, but I hope you like it! Thankfully, my friend Liz, was delighted with it (which is the main thing) and it will hopefully help to provide some nice 'snuggle down' moments with a mug of tea and a good book in the future! 

I hope you enjoy your Easter/Bank Holiday weekend, however you are spending it. After the first 'social' day in a long while yesterday (with the dog walk, etc.), it's just husband and I - and Beastie Dog - for a relaxing weekend! 

Back soon,
