After finishing the last big (crochet) blanket I felt like just playing around a bit. So I got out all the odds and ends of blanket yarn and started on a small ‘granny stripe’ blanket using Lucy’s online tutorial (Attic24).
I didn’t want to make a full size blanket, so I made a starting chain that I thought about right for a cot blanket / knee rug / small throw.
Then I kept going till I thought it looked about big enough.
And added a border.
(The colours below aren’t very true, but do at least give a flavour).
Lucy’s tutorials are so easy to follow. For this project I learnt how to start and do ‘granny stripes’, and tried out a new-to-me border (though I’m not sure that turned out quite how it’s meant to be). an easy, quick thing to make. I’m very pleased with it.
I’d like to make some more of these blankets to sell to raise money for the Farm – but to do this I need to ask people to send me their oddments of Stylecraft Special DK.
I wonder if anyone would do it? I suppose the only way to find out is to ask. So, here goes: I’m asking!
If you have any bits and pieces of Stylecraft Special DK (anything 10 grams and over), if you could post them to me (Deborah) c/o Bath City Farm, Kelston View, Bath BA2 1NW. I’ll do the rest!
All the proceeds of sale will go directly to Bath City Farm funds, probably towards a major fundraising project in the autumn. More of which later in the year, I hope.
