My blanket of many colours...........

I did, finally complete the blanket of many colours yesterday;


I used all thrift-ed yarn of many textures and sheen, and no.3 hook for the squares and no. 4 hook for the border. The total cost roughly, I would say $20. Among all the other projects, it took me about 7 months to finish.


It was also a warm and a sunny saturday afternoon, to take these photographs at my neighbourhood park.


I am going to give this away as a gift for a sweet friend. I hope she will like it. And, I am thrilled that I manged to finish my first biggest crochet project.


My next crochet project is octagons;

It is nice of you to stop by...........,        
thank you,
xxx,
Gaia

  3. Your afghan looks terrific and you did such a wonderful job of crocheting! Great too that you were able to use yarn from a thrift store. What a lovely gift. Looking forward to seeing what you make with all your octagons.

  5. Congratulations on your finished blanket!! It looks wonderful, and you must be so satisfied with the final results. I still have a blanket to make, but honestly, I'm not sure I have the willpower. I've only got a handful of squares completed, and the amount of yarn required makes me feel a bit faint. One day. Have a great week Gaia! Wendy x
