Not long to go now!
Ive completed the last granny square.... at last! I have now started to go around and around the outer edge for the border, about 12 or so times should do it. Then its the last row which will be a delicious bobble border in red. Like rows of little strawberries........
It has been immense fun making this and I feel all fired up for the next one! Probably hexagons like my clever friend has been making. Very beautiful! I regretted doing squares as soon as I saw it!!!
Ive been very naughty and been sidetracked (doesnt take much) by a pattern on Ravelry, found late last night. Of course I had to start making it RIGHT AWAY! Its called 'Anthropologie capelet'. Using 8mm needles I have already knitted about 4" in bed this morning before getting up! The wool is a cerise, 97% wool, bobbly affair, nightmare to knit, and perfect because I havent a clue what else to use it for! I can see a pea green ribbon at the neck to tie it together..... I can see it as a summer evening warm up over my planned pea green seersucker sun dress.....
Pictures of complete ensemble, I promise, when completed..... but when is another matter!!!

  3. It's beautiful. I've just started my new blanket for winter. Made out of really over sized 'granny squares' crocheted together...let's see if I get it done for the winter (june down here). I loved the fingerless glove thingies...going to have a go at making a pattern.

  5. Bonjour! How beautiful and colorful and pretty! My grand-mother crocheted me one a while ago when I was a kid. What a great inspiration! I am starting one too this weekend! I drop by your blog regularly but never find the time to leave comments, oh! that darn dial-up slow-speed internet!!! Take care, LuLu
