Cranleigh is done!

Sometimes everything runs smoothly with a blanket – sometimes it doesn’t!

Sometimes the making of a blanket runs smoothly, but sometimes it appears that there are many obstacles in the way. That’s what happened here. It’s been on the hook for A G E S .

Squares were made, ends woven in, even joined into strips; but at every turn something cropped up to delay completion.

But that is all behind now, and IT’S DONE!

This one is square – and I’m not sure why! I don’t like square blankets* as a rule as they seem limited in use. Of course, square layouts are easier to plan, as I discovered with this. What was in my head has actually happened 🤣

*(This is purely a personal thing – please make as many square blankets as you like – remember – there are no Crochet Police!)

All yarns are Stylecraft Special DK and here’s the list of colours used.

  • Lime
  • Violet
  • Sage
  • Storm Blue
  • Turquoise
  • Buttermilk
  • Vintage Peach
  • Cornish Blue
  • Plum
  • Blush
  • Raspberry
  • Meadow
  • Lavender
  • Pale Rose
  • Wisteria
  • Petrol
  • Clematis
  • Mustard
  • Cloud Blue
  • Cream

Nineteen colours in scraps, with 3 balls of Cream for joining and border.

So, what’s next? I think I know, but first I’ll concentrate on shaking off this Sinus Infection and my daily square. First square of the last strip today. It will be on Instagram later!
