These past few days I’ve been making the final touches of “granny love”
Doesn’t feel great when you are cutting the yarn ends and thinking about the joy this blanket will give to someone ?
I will offer this blanket to a friend of mine who’s giving birth in July… This friend is in love with grannies and (like myself ) she don’t love soft pastels colors for babies 🙂 She’s giving birth to a baby boy but she wants her blanket to be full of bold colors (purple included) 🙂 so here it is: Granny love!
I made this blanket a little bigger (85x105cm) than the normal-baby-blanket-size as it will be used during the cold days not before December and the baby will be 6 months old…
I used my favorite acrylic yarns the Nako brand and a 4.5mm crochet hook …
and made a simple picots edging with the off-white color…
I think the picots-edge is a quick and very nice type of edging…and the result turns out always beautiful 🙂
Ooooh how I love grannies ! I think that the multi-colored-granny-square is the first thing people should learn in crochet…as they will be hooked forever 😉
Here is a final pic before leaving you my friend…Hope you liked “granny love”!
Have a wonderful week end and thank you for visiting!
P.S: I am making progress on my “vintage blanket” and I am enjoying it sooo much…will show you something for sure next time 😉
