Gold and browns

I've finished the crochet blanket I started last week and I absolutely love it!  It's difficult to get the colours to show up properly in the available light - it's a dreich day here in Greenock!

I really enjoyed making this - I find crochet so relaxing.  It's a nice change from cross stitch.

I sewed in the yarn ends as I finished each square, so that I didn't have too much to do at the end.  Also stitched the squares together as I made them.  So much easier - as long as you don't have a plan in mind!

Once I'd finished, there was hardly any yarn left, so it was a great feeling to be using up my stash.

The vintage book - the Golden Picture Book of Puppies - is one of my favourites from childhood which you can read about it by clicking on the title.  Hope you are keeping safe and well.

The blanket turned out beautifully. So cheerful! And the puppies - Doctors should have puppies and kittens and baby animals as part of most treatment plans. "Look at pictures of two puppies a.m. and p.m. Follow up with pictures of kittens if needed."

Your crochet blanket is lovely. It is a ray of sunshine in a "dreich" day.
