Over 5 years ago I taught myself to make granny squares & started my blanket.
I wanted to make a traditional one from scraps…… this is how it looked back in January 2009, just after I started blogging
I wasn't really happy with it so I decided to unpick it & do a cream edge around each square
I asked your advice & everyone agreed the cream looked better
So it started to grow
But the problem was I had chosen a really small crochet hook, you know what it's like when you can't wait to start a project so you just use what you have! I've been regretting it every since :(
And over the 5 years I've become busier with my selling so this went on the back burner. I was so determined to finish it by the end of 2013 you could find me beavering away every Sunday evening
And finally on New Years Day I finished!
5 years & 9 months!
It's taken awhile to take some photo's but it's been used a few times for afternoon naps!
So here it is…….
The colours look a bit weird because of the light but you get the picture.
I'm so pleased I've finished it at last, I love it!!
2014 is all about finishing projects (& starting new ones)
Do you have a project you plan to finish this year?
