This year I have been trying to teach myself to crochet, it hasn't been going too badly but I have decided I need to tackle something a bit bigger than a cushion. I managed to buy some yarn from a local charity shop which was very reasonably priced at £1.40 for a huge ball.
I saw this picture in an old 70's craft book
I like the contrast of the bright colours against the black border.
So that's the plan, to have a go at making a whole blanket. I'll keep you posted, I've just got to decide what sort of squares to do, although I do like the ones Dawn is using in her blanket if I can only find the pattern.
Hope the weather is better with you than it is here,
