Ta Dah! First project of 2015 finished!!
Today is a glorious sunny morning. So sunny that getting a decent photo free from extreme black shadow is quite difficult. See the shadow? That's me taking the shot.
This is my Spring Granny square blanket. I started it back in May. When I knew the summer was coming and didn't want to be sat doing nothing all summer.
It's made from Stylecraft special DK, in a mixed Attic 24 pack from Wool Warehouse. It sat on my knee during the summer time, as I created my Hygge spot outside. My poor Hygge spot has suffered in the gale force wind. I am desolate.
I have enjoyed working the squares, and sewing in the ends and joining by sewing as I go along. Watching the work grow was fun. Of course, can I find any shots of the work in progress? No. But I grabbed my chance this week to get as many squares as I could done.
The original plan was to make a blanket 10 by 20 squares in dimension. It's actually only 10 by 14, but that's good. It's big enough to cover my feet but not my shoulders, leaving my arms free to work on the next project.
It travelled to Wales with me in its own little suitcase. Small squares, just right for the summer holidays when a large blanket is just too heavy and hot to work on.
And the sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed that I had the time/energy/had overmade enough squares to make a matching cushion. This was last night's hooky fun. 9 spare squares, joined and bordered all around with a couple of coordinating rows, and backed with pink/green stripes.
