Yes it's Day 6 of Granny A Day 2012 & here's my square for today
I made it plain / one colour and you'd be thinking to yourself "well that's an easy one to do"
Am I right?
Well let me tell you, it was a PAIN in the %$£* as I was using a scrap end of yarn & the more I got to the end the more the wool / yarn got worse and worse!
I ended up having to unravel, un knot, tease strands back into place and 4 knot joins later it was finally finished
So there are the 6 so far
Next to blog about is my trip to IKEA - we went (that's me and my lovely husband) a glass cabinet for our wine glasses, a project well overdue.
Whilst we were there I saw these lovely baskets and I thought that they would be just the ticket for sorting out my yarn stash!
My Giant Granny Blanket is growing
Before you scroll down to the next picture, can you see the flaw?
Look in the bottom right hand corner
Yes I ran out of baby pink, so I swapped to the next colour that I use in the row above and continued with that.
Here's the close up
I must admit, you don't really notice it
OK so back to the baskets and the yarn stash.
Another long over due project
