As I am rather obsessed with making blankets I don't get to join in this space very often. Blankets take a loooong time but they are very thrilling. I love the idea of making things that are heirlooms, that are laboured over and will keep for years and years. My mother has a blanket that my grandmother crocheted and it's still going strong. As it was made of acrylic yarn it's deteriorated in places so I always use wool for mine.
I got stuck in and loved it. Ripples in rows are just the right amount of soothing and thinking combined.
The children (with my help, lets be real) got me a book for Christmas by crochet legend Kirsten Omdahl called The Finer Edge. It's amazing with all sorts of edgings- I used a circle coin edging for the blanket.
This was a gift for one of my most favourite people ever, my darling sister and friend Penny. She likes it a whole lot which makes me very happy x
