Fine Granny Stripe Blanket

Finally finished – measures approximately 50” x 40”. I say fine granny stripe – as it’s made up of double trebles rather than the usual triple trebles.

Pink Posy Granny Square Blanket

It looks like the last day of sunshine for the next few days so I was determined to make best use of the light before yet more dull days.  I was up way earlier than I would have liked and decided to crack on with my new pink posy blanket and it’s finally finished. Voila here it is.

Granny Stripes Chunky Cowl


Here’s an almost granny stripes cowl, if you look closely you’ll see that it’s constructed using double dc’s rather than the normal triple dc’s associated with granny squares. I thought I would have a break from blankets and complete something quick.

I love the colours of this cowl and the yarn is a wool and acrylic blend so it’s soft, cosy and warm.
