I am going to start my first Blog Post of 2012 with these fantastic pictures.
They were sent to my by one of my pupils JC yesterday
We started off the flowers / floral centres and the base of the squares in class together before Christmas
JC took all three home and completed them
They look so brilliant - I am really proud of her, especially as she also sent me this picture, of the blanket in Rainbow Colours, which was the first pattern that she came to me with - she's soldiering on and trying to crochet a row a day - what an achievement so far!
I love the colours.
Now for the completed Draught Excluder
This was my boring rolled up fleece......
And this was the start of the cover I crocheted. I was a little concerned as it seemed to be getting bigger in some places and smaller in others - although I was using DK and a 4mm hook throughout, it must be the wool/yarn manufacturers - they must differ very slightly on thickness. I was using lots of odds and ends and I don't think that any of the wools were made in the same factory.
It's like going to M&S and trying on a size 10 then going to NEXT and fitting into a size 8!!
Anyway back to crochet.....
I am really pleased with the end result
It's really colourful and has "made over" that boring old rolled up fleece blanket no end
I just love the colours
