Granny Blanket

I finally completed my granny blanket, aka the love blanket so-called because my cat can’t get enough of it!

I’m so chuffed, this project has been in the making for over two years now and it’s been sat in the wardrobe waiting for me to finish.

Although an avid knitter I never learnt how to crochet, and recovery from a foot operation gave me the impetus I needed to teach myself. At first I thought it was the most complicated and confusing thing I had ever tried,  and I wondered why on earth people persevered with learning something so difficult, but then it slowly started to make sense.

I’m still a beginner and have a long way to go- the thought of scalloped crochet makes me nervous, but I now have confidence to keep going. I’m even thinking about making another blanket, although I hope this one won’t take as long to complete!
