Well, I am very pleased to have finished my second crochet blanket!!! )c( )pty

This one has only taken me two months, compared to the eight months the first one took yike* Mind you, it has been worked on every day, often for hours on end!

There are 120 x 5 row squares - my first one had 168x 4 row squares, but they seem approx the same size. I have been making them big enough to cover the top of a double bed, so they will be quite versatile. My only concern is that when I took this second photo, a large brown and white sort of fluffy blemish seems to have appeared )grin2(

{rofwl} Honestly, you wouldn't credit it - whenever I try to take a pic of her she gets up or turns away......but whenever I am trying to photograph something else (particularly crochet!) she photo bombs it {rofwl}

Nice blanket.
Will you be wrapping it around yourself and selling flowers in the town square?

Now that is a real nice blanket, love the colours. Seeing such lovely crochet really makes me want to knuckle down and learn how to do it properly.

Ahhhhh - thanks everyone {hug} I am really pleased with it although think I like my first one better.

Mrs Boodles -I can honestly say it is worth learning. I did find it tricky at first,a dnthen all of a sudden it was like a light bulb going on in my head!! {rofwl}
