I finished these blankets which I’m going to give as a donation to a nursing home for knee blankets.

2018 temperature blanket

dav

This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.

I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.

I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.

At the heart of it all

I finished a heart pixel blanket for my one sister’s birthday present. I really had fun making it, and the nice part of it all was that I only had to buy the white wool. It was a perfect design to use up all that odd colours which weren’t enough for any large project.

I am needing ideas for my next pixel blanket.

Until then….

 

Tunisian entrelac crochet

This project has taken me so long to complete. I’m using the small balls of wool, the ones that are to small to do much with other than make amigurumi, to complete this project. I started it on the 12/June/2016. It’s been a long time and now I should get it finished

The scrap blanket

I am making slow progress on my yo-yo blanket. It is pretty simple to make and uses such a little wool.

Pattern:

5ch, join to form a ring. 3ch, 15 dc into the ring. join to the top of ch3. Slip stitch the circles together as you work. I slst 4 rings together with 4dc between the slst.

 

 

Batman Pixel Blanket

This was a birthday present for my father. As I was busy with the blanket, I wondered if it was a little too young for a 40 something man, but it wasn’t. I had only 3 months in which to make it in and I was amazed at how I managed that. I guess when you have limited time, one can do the impossible with a little motivation.

I made over 1530 solid granny squares to complete this blanket and finished size is suitable for a 3/4 bed.

Sew and crochet blanket

These are the fabric squares that I am attempting to join together with crochet. I have done blanket stitch around the squares. I am not sure if I should piece and pack them together so they fit like a puzzle, or should I make them all the same size and then sew them together. I am stuck. Any suggestions?

Latest Projects

I am a person who never seems to complete a project. I like to start something and then while I am busy with that project I see another one that looks interesting. So I leave the first project and start on the new one. Here is all the projects I have made and still making over the days…just to show a few.
