Just over 2 1/2 years ago I visited my local wool shop looking for wool to make a granny blanket for our bed. After a lot of pondering I chose the wool & the colours that I thought would look best in the bedroom.
The wool is Wendy Emu Superwash, it isn't as soft as Rowan but as it is going on top of my duvet I didn't mind. The colours are bright but subtle at the same time which is what I was looking for. I started it as soon as I got home from the shop & managed to do 26 squares before other projects started to take up my time. After a while it ended up in a bag in the study not to see the light of day for 2 years !!
I found it again when I was having a sort out back in July. I was so determined to finish it ready for this autumn that I worked on it whenever I had the chance. Now all that hard work has paid off & I am so pleased to say that I hooked the last stitch last night.
So without further to-do I proudly present my finished bedroom granny blanket ...................
Bedroom Granny Blanket
Yarn : Wendy Emu Superwash 100% Wool
Colours : Stone # 1520 / Blush # 1517 / Damask # 1516 / Steel Blue # 1518 /Spearmint # 1519 / Grape # 1513 / Claret # 1512
Words can not describe how happy (& relieved) I am to see this finished. I ended the border with a scallop edging which is a lovely finishing touch. Am I happy with the end result ............. OH YES !!!!! I am so proud of it that I keep going upstairs to admire it.
