Finishing Touches

Recently I have just been finishing up the granny square baby blanket that I have been crocheting, which entailed sewing in the ends of these squares and joining them on. 

After joining these onto the rest of the blanket, I was set do crochet the border! Here is a sneak peek as I am hoping to get it finished this week, so I will have a finished blanket to show you on Friday! Woo!

This week I also decided to treat myself for being very good at 'stash busting' my stash, by buying myself more yarn! I selected my own Stylecraft DK colours, instead of opting for the Lucy/Attic24 pack colours which are lovely but it has far too many cold colours in it. I am short of two colours, however I will order them when they are back in stock. What do you think? Could you tell it is a Hazel's Crochet pack? 

This is to give you a better look of the colours I have which are indicated with the black dots since my photograph quality is terrible, and the two that I have still to get. These colours make me so happy!

Better go, dinner is currently cooking!

Take Care

  10. Is that Style Craft cotton or wool? And you hooked a granny border around each square and then whipstitched them together? One of these days I will be hooking a tradtional Granny blanket. You are an inspiration.
