I thought it was about time I got up to date with the stuff I’d crocheted this year so far.
Another cot/pram blanket in the Greenway pattern from Comfort Knitting and Crochet Afghans in lemon and white.
This one is 75cm x 95cm and took four x 100g balls. With the pink and white one I had more of the pink left but this used it up pretty evenly resulting in a two tone edging…
which hopefully looks like a design feature rather than a necessity.
I finished the chunky afghan I started when I lent my 4.5mm hook to my sister in law.
Its about 100cm x 130cm and I found some cream and blue chunky I had lying around – not too sure where it came from.
The green was given to me by the same yoga friend as the lilac and I had to use it double. I gave my Auntie En the remainder last week for her blankets as I didn’t think I’d use it single and was in no rush to do anything else on a BIG hook.
And I finished the bits and bobs afghan with the 4.5mm hook…
I do think it would have looked better with all the squares edged in the same colour – more together. This is about 90cm x 120cm.
It got a row of double crochet (US single crochet) for the edging with the second row done in reverse double crochet. Hey it’s simple but effective.
This and the chunky one are for the South African creche/hospital via one of our GPs’ receptionists.
Gill, my sis in law, has still got the crocheting bug and when she mentioned that she was going to buy herself a selection of hooks I thought that might be a good idea for a Birthday present at the end of this month. How about these for colourful and very reasonable at £8.99 from Amazon – certainly cheaper than buying plain grey ones individually and although I haven’t test driven any but they got good reviews and feel nice to handle.
