This is a little couch throw I made and finished about a month ago. I used a lot of yarn scraps from my stash left over from various projects. I would have liked it to be a little longer covering the seat as well but I didn’t have enough yarn so had to stop there. I really like how random the squares are laid out and joined together, in no particular order whatsoever, kinda brightens up my little work area as this is where I sit to work on my yarny projects during the day - I’m thinking it needs some colourful crochet cushions to cosy the area up a bit. I guess it’s obvious what I’ll be adding to my WIP pile :)
Daisy Granny Squares
It’s been another productive week, besides blocking it, I have pretty much finished the daisy granny blanket for my two year old daughter, who by the way loves her new little hand made gift from mummy so much she has practically snatched it away and is sleeping soundly with it at the moment. (I don’t think she really cares if the blanket gets a blocking or not..and at the moment I don’t either). I’m just really pleased my little recipient adores it as much as I do :)
I based the pattern on Lucy’s summer garden granny squares and just chose to do an extra row of dc around each granny square for a neater look. Originally I was going to fan stitch around the blanket for the trim, but I changed my mind and decided to keep it simple with four rows of sc around in blue and white, keeping it subtle as to not draw too much attention away from the flowers..they are just too pretty and I really wanted them to be the main focus on the blanket.
Now that my two year old has a little granny blanket of her own, it is only fair that I make my one year old daughter one too!
Off I go to start another project….
Daisy Granny Squares
So after I finished my ripple blanket I felt a little void, the ripple had taken up a lot of my crafting time these past few months and now it’s finished, I couldn’t help feel a little bit empty inside (is that weird?). Craft wise I just can’t stay idle for too long. So what did I do? I start working on my next project of course. Yesterday I started on some granny squares, this is going to be a little blanket for my two year old daughter.
At first I was hesitant to add pink to the colour combination, but I am glad I decided to add it in after all. It actually works quite well and adds a bit more cheer to the blanket. Don’t you think?
