Quiet aren't I??

Missed me?? Well I do have 'stuff' to share... First up is a gift I was sent the other day... it needed a 'forever home' where it would be looked after and made to feel needed! What was it?  Ooh you are a nosy lot!! VBG

I'll show you...

 As I say, it had decided it needed a new home... Thanks Janet!!!  It'll be in use soon!!

What else... Oh yes, I'm sure I've mentioned it before but me n Sir are to be granny n granpa for the second time!!  Bump is due sometime in the next 4 weeks.  Mummy requested someone to make a blanket for Bump to give Li'l Miss (when Bump eventually makes an appearance in the family), because Li'l Miss has 'donated' a lot of clothes (non gender specific), and baby toys to Bump!  Guess which Granny had to get the crochet hook out, and get the wool.... Yup, me!! LOL

Anyway, there was a deadline... haven't reached the deadline yet... but Blanket is ready!!  Want to see??

Here you go:

It measures around 60 inches or 1.5metres square.  And for those of you who want to do it... I had 1 ball of each of the first 4 colours, and 2 of each of the others.  Double Knitting yarn. 3tr and 1ch sp, with 2ch sp between 2 sets of tr's in the corners.  6 rounds each colour and 2 rounds white. Yes, a HUGE Granny Square!! Edge was simply 1 round tr blocks and 1 round dc with 1 dc in each tr or ch (and 3 in the corners so it won't curl up).  The notation is English!!  For the US where I've said tr read dc, and dc is sc!!  Hey that means I'm bilingual in crochet!!! ROFL

Now to decide what to do with all the leftovers....

Chat later, coffee's getting cold!


  1. That is a beautiful blanket. The colors just POP!

  2. Love your new shuttle, which has a lovely sheen to it. And your blanket. Great colours!

  3. LOVE the colours of the blanket. I'm jealous of the bump!

  4. Lucky you and lucky bump. Lovely blanket.

  5. Beautiful blanket, great colors, and lots of crocheting! Love the contrast in white. And good to know how many balls are needed of each color. Thanks for the pattern!
