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.
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.
I am making slow progress on my yo-yo blanket. It is pretty simple to make and uses such a little wool.
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.
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.
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?
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.
I have so much little bits of wool laying around from completed projects and I decided that it was time to use them up and make room for new projects’ supplies.
