My little bit of this big World

Three cheers

It's finished, and I love it
 Really nice size,
I am so glad to started this second blanket
 Loads of overhang at the bottom
 Ripples are so pretty
 It must be winter, no gardening,
so I have nails with polish on. 
Bed dressed, the two cushions are handmade, cross stitch by me. 
Left over yarn, to be made into small granny squares
Just a reminder of the yarn I used, this brand gave me so many wonderful colours to use on the blanket. 
I started this on 13 November, so a couple of months to complete, I did have more time for crochet, as I sat most afternoons with hubby as he recovered from his operation, giving me at least 5 hours to work on it most days. 
Can you feel the grin on my face, this is the biggest thing I have ever made, very relaxing to do, only problem as the weather is getting really cold, I will have to find another blanket for my lap in the evenings.
On the plus side, Grace my cat can come back and sit on my lap, she knows she not allowed to sit near my work, most evenings she walks by to see if there is any chance of a cuddle.
My sister sent me a photo of her using the 1st ripple blanket I made, she looked snuggled and warm.

  3. It's fabulous, you must be so pleased with it. I can see what you mean about having a good overhang, it does make such a big difference on this second blanket, definitely worth starting again and your sister's done well out of it too.

  4. Absolutely stunning! 5 hours a day? I can only crochet about half an hour at a time as I still get a painful yarn groove across my finger. I've tried sticky plasters and other things, but then the yarn slides about. I can't wait to see you next project. Best, Jane x

  11. You have so much patience MJ. But I also remember visiting the hospital for my antenatal visits, with my last baby. I would knit his baby blanket, while waiting. He still has it, and loves it. Although it's very small for him now! Well done on all your patience and endurance.
