Christine has sent through a picture of the Eastern Tile blanket which she has been working on. We are going to be so excited to see this in real like. It is just superb and the amount of patience and work in this is obvious. Beautiful colours and a stunning blanket. It was a kit pattern and so worth doing.

Christine brought along her crochet blanket kit on Monday. We just loved it. We loved the mandalas, the grannie squares, the colours , the look. It is vibrant and has such a high visual appeal. It is painstaking work and is taking time but Christine likes that sort of a challenge. This will be a stunning blanket when it is finished. It is already impressive.
Janette has a nice tradition of making a warm, handspun crochet blanket for each of her grandchildren on one of their birthdays. This one is for a granddaughter. It is warm, soft, cosy and the very thing to keep you all snuggly. It’s made from merino wool in rainbow colours and looks very effective.
There are some great, free patterns for all sorts of crochet blankets of varying sizes on lovecrochet…something for everyone in the family.
