One finished, another begun

My circles within squares cotton blanket is complete!

Here it is. Well here it is in duplicate as it looked so lovely out in the sunshine.

I kept the border simple, choosing one of the blue colours to highlight the edge.

I’m pleased I stuck to my gradual colour scheme instead of just mixing them up.Cotton circles within squares crochet blanket

It is lovely and malleable and soft

I just need to find a couple of props to photograph it officially for my as yet empty (don’t really care if I don’t sell anything because I just love to crochet) etsy shop.

And I’ve started another.

Cotton granny square crochet blanket
A straight forward giant granny.  It’s in Scheepjeswol cotton 8 again. It’s only 4 ply so it takes a while but I think worth it.

Oh, and I’ve named my shop. ‘Baby One-of-A-Kind’. But  don’t go looking for it. It’s not open for business yet.

Love, Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  9. Well now you’ve got me impatient to see your shop so hurry up and open it!! I absolutely love the way this blanket has turned out, so much, dare I say, nicer than the more usual, predictable ones you come across. I hope it finds a deserving new owner soon after it’s listed:)

  14. Wow, you are really cracking along with these! I’m sure your 4 ply one is coming along much quicker than my dk version!!

    Since your last crochet-related post, I have taught myself to do granny squares (isn’t youtube wonderful?) and, barring a couple of muddles at the beginning (something went wrong on top of my new colour joins, not sure what) and a strange propensity to do four trebles instead of three from time to time (why? why??), it’s going ok. That decided me on the format – just keep going on a bigger and bigger granny square. Hopefully, by the time (if ever) I do individual squares, the pattern will be so ingrained in my mind that the beginning stages will be a doddle!

    I was doing 3 rows of each colour. Still not sure if you do the 3 chain, half motif in the corner, go round, complete the corner motif thing just when joining on new colours, or all the time …
