I am still making blankets though :)
My other half's is taking shape nicely now. All the squares are complete, just got to sew them al together.......all 63 of them.....I got a little ambitious when deciding how big to make the blanket. It will cover his bed nicely but is gonna take me a good few days to get sewn. I'd really like to give it to him Thursday when I go over for the weekend as it is a very late (or very early now if you look at it another way lol) Christmas present.
I have also been beavering away making the innards of the black edged granny square blankets that will be going out this year as Christmas presents. Initially I had planned two such blankets (for each of my brothers) but now possibly more...thank goodness I have the school holidays to get a mass of them done. I am beginning to run out of wool though. I was just using left over wool, but that is dwindling fast.
The pound shop do three balls for £2 but limited colours. I will have to re-tock soon though.
I find the granny square making very relaxing and they work-up so much quicker than more normal blanket squares.
