Granny Stripe Blanket: The Update

I'm 15 days into my granny striped adventure. It's simple, repetitive and mindless but colourful, pretty and cosy all at the same time.

24th November


I've introduced a kind of peachy colour to give it a bit of warmth. What do you think?

I reckon I'm probably about a third of the way through the blanket but I'm going to need an emergency trip to the wool shop this week. In the mean time I'm going to take a little break from blanketing to concentrate my efforts on crafting some Christmas puddings, writing some Christmas cards and buying a few more balls of the cream wool.

This weekend has been pretty good. I've been busy making myself a Christmas dress, made mince pies, watch Harry Potter 2, had a trip round the local charity shops, done some Christmas shopping and marked a lot of test papers. I love all the anticipation for Christmas...

Has anyone else got a blanket in progress?

  2. Hi Emma. Love your blanket. The colours work really well and I can see what you mean about the peach wool. Hope the mince pie making went well. Still have ours to do....

    Just been reading some of your previous posts and you've crochet some gorgeous things. Sadly my crochet skills are limited to misshapen granny square blankets xx
