green granny blanket

Green Granny Blanket
Green: 75% Wool, 15% Mohair, 5% Alpaca, 5% Silk. Brown: 80% Wool, 20% Bamboo. Crochet.

Finally a finished project! It’s been finished for a while actually but as it was a birthday gift to my sweet sis, I had to delay posting about it til after her birthday.

It’s a large blanket with subtle contrasting fine stripes of an earthy brown. I think the stripes add modern twist the regular granny stitch blankets.

Finished with an open chunky row followed by a few rows of double, then a couple of single crochet rows including one final brown stripe around the edge. This is a lovely warm chunky blanket that is very soft and cozy. Both the yarns are from Bendigo Woollen Mills – I stocked up quite a bit with my last order! They really do a beautiful quality yarn with a fabulous selection of colours to choose from.
It was a pleasure to create this little blanket, especially knowing it was going to be for my sweet sis to snuggle under on the couch watching the telly. Hmm… sounds like the kind of thing I’d like to do on this lazy Sunday… but maybe with the addition of my yarn and hook… and a pot of peppermint tea… and maybe even some leftover gluten free chocolate birthday cake that I made. Although it’s not really like a cake because I can’t follow a recipe to save myself. Kind of turned out flat. So I called it a torte…but then I thought it looked like a pancake (yep it really was that flat)… and then I thought it was really like a brick! But surprisingly, a delicious rich chocolatey fudgey brick. Ok, I’ve talked myself into it now – I’m off for another slice!
Wishing you all a super sweet Sunday.
