I had every intention of showing something that I was making each week when I started this blog.  So…that’s going well then….

However, I finally finished something..woohoo!

I purchased a ball of 12 ply multi coloured wool a while ago.  As you can see, I started making a larger blanket.  I then ran out of wool, so a Plan B was required.  I then made lots of smaller squares.  The rationale behind this was that I would find a contrast wool to pull it all together.  2014-02-12 14.26.58

That proved impossible for a few weeks, until a recent visit to Spotlight, where I came upon these.  Perfect!

So I joined my squares using the method from here.  If you ever want to learn how to crochet granny squares, Pip is your lady.  Her tutorials are fabulous.

I ended up only used the teal colour (the wool band called it Jade) for all the joining, and for when I went around the boarder a few times.  When making the quick trip back to Spotlight to pick up a little more Jade wool, I came across this orange.  A lap around the edge just made it all pop!

It’s not my usual colour scheme, but I like it.  Because the wool is 12ply, it’s quite heavy, so will be perfect as the weather gets cooler.  It measures 80cm x 90cm.  Perfect for a small person. Or perhaps a lap blanket for a bigger person.

I haven’t put anything in my Made It shop for ages, but I think I’ll put this in over the weekend.  If you’d like to purchase it directly, you can send me an email at mrstiddlypip@gmail.com.  I’ve found some more of the multi coloured wool so I’m going to make a big blanket for Miss 9 out of that…hopefully she’ll let this one go if I trade her for the new one!

Have you been making anything lately?  Share it with me???
