Crochet Blanket

I have to start by admitting to you that I've just completed a little victory lap of the living room punching the air on the way, yes I have finished my granny square crochet blanket. It was a little more work than I originally thought (although I didn't exactly sit down and think about the time when I decided to map this).

I've had a good crafty weekend and started today with all the squares completed and ends threaded through ... very close to completion

So the challenge was on.... just the stitching together left before the blanket was finished....surely that can be completed in 1 day...

So about 9 hours and crochet claw hand later here it is, my fabulous granny square blanket.

... and I'm absolutely loving it, although I guess I am a little biased.

I have been lucky enough to inherit this beautiful antique wooden 2 seater sofa, think the blanket looks perfect casually looped over the back of it. Not sure how I'm going to feel if someone decides to sit on the sofa with a glass of red wine though. I have at least checked the yarn and it is machine washable, fingers crossed I won't be washing it in the near future.

I have been completing these squares on my commute to work each day which leaves me with a quandry for tomorrow morning...might have to read the paper like all the other commuters until I find a new train friendly project.


  1. It looks lovely! Having spent many hours working on a project it's always great to see the finished result and more especially so when it looks so good.

  2. Looks fab, I've still got one of grandma's old crocheted blankets and I can't bear to part with it as its so versatile. You could always take up knitting then no-one will sit next to you!

  3. Hi Rebecca - I am so so proud. It looks gorgeous! I love the colour combination as well. Thanks for emailing it's always great to see a project completed after a workshop. Hope you enjoy lots of snuggling up this winter with your new blanket. X
