Finally I can introduce to you the finished pink blanket.
I am glad it is finished. I think it has been a challenge more than the other crocheted things I have made. I really wanted it to be right as I want to sell it in my 'little shop'.
Where I left this project I had just put all the squares together and the blanket began to bunch up and it looked awful. At this point I was starting to stress that it wouldn't work.
After much discussion with my Mum and other crocheters I decided to just keep going and see what happened. If it ended up looking awful I wouldn't sell it.
So... once all the squares were all together I started the process of trying to figure out what border to do. Do I make a frilly border or a practical straight border? The border always takes me a long time to decide on as it is the part of the blanket that really finishes it off. I should have taken photos of ALL the ideas that I tried and there were a few. It would have been interesting to see the process. I must remember that for next time. In the end I opted for a nice simple border.
So there you have it after many months I give you...
THE PINK COT BLANKET
I must say after all the stress and challenge of making it has passed I do really like it. It is just so snuggly and delicious. I now can't wait to pass it on to a little girl who will find it just as snuggly and delicious.
Fingers crossed someone else falls in love with it.
