Crochet blanket

crochet grannie squaresBig projects take a long time and so it’s hard to show and tell at times. You just have to wait! Cathy is making a crochet blanket which includes the naturally dyed wool she has been making and then the wool batts she learned to card at the dyeing workshop earlier this year. There are then yarns from the naturally dark Finn X fleece mixed with caramel alpaca and blue banana fibre silk or hand dyed  green or red Finn Cross with the naturally dark Finn X and some green or red banana fibre silk. She is still spinning the yarn to get the blanket to be big enough. It will be primarily  made of these two blocks . As a work in progress, how it turns out will be determined by choices along the way. When you spin, card and colour your own yarn you get something totally unique and original. One of the real advantages of building up your fibre skills set.
