This is the last time.


Yes this is the last time I will bore you with my new blanket .
It is finished . It is done .
I absolutely love it !
I enjoyed not having to concentrate
 (I'm good at that though )
I loved that while I was making it , it kept me warm at the same time .
It was so simple and soothing .
It looks damn good on the washing line too .


My internet has been slowed way , way down until next week .
So I may as well sit with my beautiful new blanket and start on something new .

It's absolutely gorgeous! I want to make one! Or shall I just buy one? Hee hee! Mind you, if I sat and did that in an evening I would have half a chance of sticking to a diet instead of biscuit munching!

Well done, job well done Hun! xxx

Sarah said...

Oh well done Clare! It looks amazing, it really does. I love all the bright colours in the rows. I have no idea how you have made it but I'd love to give it a go. I can't believe you are thinking about starting a new project already! I'd take a month break at least.

Perfect to warm you on these cool winter days and nights - and to brighten the dreary days that can be all too common at this time of year.

Well done on getting it finished this winter. Enjoy

Ahhh...I'm just sitting here in the cold imaging myself totally warm and snuggled under that colourful creation. Gorgeous work!

Why wouldnt you show this off constantly? It's crochet art! Beautiful Clare. Are you taking orders because I can't crochet to save myself.

Melody said...

What a lovely and cheerful blanket. I have a feeling you may have inspired many people to get out their yarn and hook to make one for themselves.

Is that a 3.5mm hook you've used with maybe an 8ply Clare? I've been using a 9mm with a thicker wool & love how it comes together quickly. Love the bright colours you've used.
