(I'm trying hard not to groan)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend
Ours was a good balance of jobs that needed doing and restfulness
I have a * Ta Da * for you today
It's been a loooong time in the making
but here it is
Rhubarb crumble :: Way one
My Rhubarb crumble granny blanket
Ta :: Da!
What do you think?
I am not entirely happy if I'm being honest
but it is my first granny square blanket
so I'll let myself off the hook
(he he there's a joke there)
I'm certainly not a relaxed crocheter
and it shows
I joined the squares too tightly
but never mind.
I will remember that next time.
I made a wide border
partly because I thought it would look nice
(and I think it does)
and partly because I got bored making the squares
I gave up a bit too soon
making a rather small blanket
so the border made up for it.
and I love it.
I used cascade 220 pure wool
it is gorgeous
and comes in a bewildering array of luscious colours
very hard to choose from
the ones I (eventually) chose were .....
Dusty rose 8114
flamingo pink 7805
Mauve heather 9441
soft pink 4192
cotton candy 9478
Well my title says
'Rhubarb crumble :: Two ways'
so here is
Rhubarb crumble :: Way two
I bet you didn't see that one coming!
Before I say toodle-oo for today
I would just like to say a BIG hello to all of my new followers
Hello ..... it's lovely to welcome you here
In fact 'hello' to all of my followers and readers
it would be no fun at all without you here
