This is my first finished piece of the year. And it’s just a simple Granny Square blanket!
I was trying to use up some spare baby wool I had lying about and I used 2 colours of the same type of yarn. You can’t really tell though as it’s all variegated. It looks alright, if I do say so myself!
But everyone I know who has a baby has already received a blanket from me! So, this one is going to charity I think.
I started it and did most of it (until it got too big) at work on my break! So, I feel like I’ve done something productive in otherwise wasted hours…I know, I know, it’s not all about the productivity, but this was something to keep me sat at the table and feel like I was doing something, rather than just scrolling on my phone all the time!
Anyway…here it is draped over my desk chair!
I used a 4mm hook and maybe 5 1/2 balls of wool? I can’t remember the exact amount but it was about that and I lobe how it turned out!
Now, I just need to find a local baby donation centre to give it to, but I think I’m going to hold on to it a while and make a few other things with spare yarn too!
It’s been living in my knitting projects bag for the last few weeks (oh the irony-it’s not knitting, it’s crochet!) which incidentally you can get here in my Society 6 shop or the same design here in my RedBubble shop.
I think I might make a separate post about print on demand products I’ve designed and bought to do with crafting because there’s quite a few!
But that’s it for now, just a quick show and tell! Hope you’re all having a great weekend and getting lots of crafting done!
