The last few stitches - almost done!
My gorgeous granny square blanket is finally finished! I still have all the threads on the back to tie in but from the front it's definitely complete - phew. This has been such a fun project with my small folk helping to choose the colours as we went along. No two squares are the same so it's super colourful and very cheerful. I have been fluffing around trying to make up my mind on what sort of edging I wanted. I even went so far as to get books from the library with every imaginable stitch shown (I now want to buy this gorgeous book). I decided on a scalloped edge in the end and I love the result. Not super fancy but it looks so comforting and wholesome. I used the colour that had first jumped out at me in the wool shop - even though I'm not really a blue kinda gal - this shade is just beautiful. I love, love, love this blanket! So do my wee ones - they were eager to scramble under it this morning to give it a 'test drive' as they called it. Thank you so very much to Lucy from attic24 for inspiring me completely with this wonderful design of hers! You're a total star.
