Crochet Nostalgia

Visited my dad's house this afternoon to collect some wool, and I found an old crochet blanket in my cupboard that I thought I had thrown out years ago...it brought a sense of nostalgia to me, as my mum made this for me when I was young and this was my inspiration to learn how to make a granny blanket.


As its over ten years old and has been through the wear and tear of my youthful years, it has gotten a bit tatty, my new found love of crochet makes me want to mend this blanket some how. At least it shows that crocheting is in my genes :)


Also I mentioned in my FO post that I would take a photo of the mustard yellow wool I bought, and this is it below. I am very excited to have it as this is my first purchase of really nice wool....It is Mustard by Vanna's Choice, and I am using it to make some things for my sister possibly for christmas!!


Yay for christmas projects :D

  4. Awww, the mum blanket. Mine is still at Nana's I think (unless she has thrown it out). Even mum would say that you are better at crochet than she was.

    Yay mustardy things!

  5. Oh I love finding old home makes. I've found some real treasures made by my grannys and love the little bits that used to belong to them which I have in my sewing box.
    I'm sure you could fix it up. Maybe there is a board with tips on ravelry?
    Christmas is going to be here before we know it. Arrrrrgh. Love the wool!

  7. Great mustard colour, I used a similar colour for my nephew last Christmas. Do try to repair the blanket, it is wonderful! I still have a quilt my Grandma made me when I was a baby, I treasure it.
