Work In Progress…

Sorry I haven’t been posting for a while – we’ve been busy! It’s been half term here in North Somerset and we headed up to London (more on that later) to visit my sister’s family and to deliver the crochet Granny Blanket. I’m pleased to report it’s a success! My sister loves it and so does baby Ava…

I’ve attempted a few baby cardigans in my time but they’ve never really been a success. weird and they never fit quite right.

I’m working with short rows which makes for a really pretty finish. It’s another Ava present so have am working it in light grey with red ribbon and buttons. Here’s the pattern picture;

I’ve chosen soft greys, smokey blues and a delicate pink to start a massive granny square. I’ve splashed out on Rowan Big Wool…

  1. That granny blanket is gorgeous, great choice of colours! I’m currently working on a huge single-square granny blanket to use up my many many half balls of acrylic. I’m starting to wish I’d chosen a bigger hook now though!
