Granny Square Blanket

An update on the first crochet blanket I'm making. It's going to be for my spare room bed so I've a lot more squares to go! I've deliberately gone for summery colours as I want it to have a summer garden feel. As it's my first attempt at making something and I want it to be of practical use I've just used a mix of fairly cheap yarns that will be soft, comfy and washable.

Lizard Ridge Blanket

I began a new knitting project last week. A great big afghan blanket for my sofa. It's the lizard ridge pattern I've liked for ages and I've managed to do one square so far. It's using James C. Brett Marble Chunky in browns and greys. There's a way to go yet but I like the colours so it should be perfect when it's finished.
