My Little Blanket

...and my first ever major crochet project!

It's not as big as I had hoped it would be, but then that's due to running out of certain colours of yarn. But I have to say, all the same....................I love it, yes I do.

Even though I haven't tied in all the loose ends - yet (ah hem) but to be honest, it's just like quilting to me. I love the making and seeing something build and come together in an almost impatient way, but finishing off those loose ends, well let's just say I have quilts ten years old plus that have never had the quilting finished off. Naughty I know, but I'm in no great hurry.

Anyhow, I love, love, love the colours of my little blanket, the weight and all important snuggle factor and even though it is a 'Little Blanket' it will most definitely have a purpose at Tabiboo HQ.

It's my wrap around the bed post kind of blanket for throwing across shoulders when snuggled up in bed - any time of the year.

My roll it up and shove it in a 'carry all' for picnic and lounging around on warm grass and daisies watching clouds skipity skip across the sky kind of days.

A throw it in the back of the car to keep little ones snuggled on the longest of long kind of blanket journeys.

Or folded up in a basket and taken down the beach to warm up the most chattering of teeth after a day of dip, dip, dipping in and out of crystal clear waters when the sun has started to drop.

But most of all, it is my blanket, my first little colourful crocheted blanket made from the softest of wool and the most gorgeous plumy berry colours and I love it!

Have a wonderful, wonderful day and thank you for all your kind messages yesterday - warm wishes, Nxx.
