Luka's blanket done!

It's done! Luka's blanket is complete. He is turning 5 this year and 5 is a big deal here in New Zealand. I want him to have an heirloom, something that is hand made. Just for him.

The colours were chosen by Luka and he loves he finishes the blanket. The blanket is a bit "scream-y" but hey, it's for him not me. I completed this in just over 3 months and it has 96 granny squares. The yarn is Loyal machine washable DK/ 8 ply.

I wanted a neutral border to calm the vibrancy of the squares down a bit. I thought I would do a wide band but as I started it I realised the narrow band looked better.

So! My first ever blanket completed and I so enjoyed making it. I love that Luka sleeps under this at night, like he is cuddled by me the whole night though x

  5. That blanket is fantabulous! the colours are lovely and you absolutely chose the right border. It calms things a little, but more than that, it really brings the whole thing together! Well done!
