Anyhoo, I finally finished my crochet blanket. I had intended on making it a bit bigger (more of a rectangle) but I was getting really fed up of it and
I did a couple of rows of single crochet in each of the three colours to make an edge/border which really finishes it off nicely. I wasn't sure about how to do the corners and kind of just made it up as I went along, each corner is probably different, but it turned out fine....well I think so anyway! If there are any experienced crocheters reading this, I apologize if you're pulling your hair out and wondering what on earth I talking about as you can see an obvious mistake....just don't look too closely at the next picture! :)
Since I couldn't figure out how to photograph it all arty-farty like they do in magazines, here it is just folded up...
Since the blanket was finished (just in time for all the snow!) I then turned my attention to Twilight Fairy who has been sitting gathering dust. I managed to get quite a bit of the black grass stitched, but I have to admit that it's a bit boring! Last week I was complaining about stitching white on white, this week I have gone to the other extreme and am stitching black on navy blue....just as painful! Still it will be worth it in the end.
I might sound a bit crazy here, but I keep thinking that the little fairy looks like she's wearing a pair of wellie boots! :) Anyone else see it?
Until next time...happy stitching!
