FO's & Summer Granny.....

As promised here are photos of my Summer Granny Blanket & some of the colours I am using. I am using Patons 100% DK Cotton. The colours show up better in the 2nd photo.

I recently finished 3 other projects:

My First Ripple Blanket

After years of only being able to do granny squares I was inspired to learn how to crochet properly by Lucy at Attic24. I just love everything she makes & her colour sense is amazing. So one Sunday in January I sat down with "Learn to Crochet" by Sally Harding & taught myself. My first project was a Ripple Blanket for the sofa.
