Craft brag

Remember ages ago when I said I was making a single bed blanket for Harper? I needed 315 crocheted granny squares. I gave myself a year to do the project in, starting with learning how to crochet a granny square.
Nine months of crocheting, playing with designs and sourcing wool later; ta-dah! The finished blanket. I think it looks glorious.

But then, I am biased.

In other news, I whipped up a few bits for a new baby at the weekend while it was raining. It was rare for me to just sit and knit. Usually, we're outside, or doing chores, or something.
Hope she likes them.

It is glorious! Well done you. My sis made me one for Bonnie's cot of a similar spectacular nature, they are just so warm and wonderful. Give yourself a pat on the back.
