King Size Blanket Finished!

It’s been a while, again, I always promise I won’t leave it so long but life and doings gets in the way. That’s what happens when you have two kids and are trying to run two businesses 🙂

Anyway the blanket I made for my brother in law’s girlfriend is now finished. It took a while and took up a lot of room but 16 balls of stylecraft special dk and a lot of hard work later and here it is 🙂 she’s a beaut!

I love how it’s turned out. I’m going to have to make myself one as its lovely and warm and heavy. I love a good traditional granny afghan!

As well as this beasty i have also been making some other items. Super chunky and knitted ribbed bobble hats were very popular over christmas with my lovely customers so I have been making quite a few of those, I made some lovely baby blankets too including this chunky ripple blanket in graphite, mustard (Cygnet Chunky) and cream (stylecraft). I love how this turned out and it is now for sale (see our facebook page for details http://www.facebook.com/offthehookbrum).

Most recently I have been working on some cushion covers for my boring sofa. The first is finished now and was made using a ‘danna square’ pattern which can be found for free on ravelry. I used leftover yarn from the king size blanket and some other bits I had left from making Alfie’s blanket. For the back of the cushion I just did a simple striped tc pattern.

Currently I am making another cushion cover using triangle granny squares and a baby blanket using the sunburst granny square pattern which i’ve been wanting to try for ages. Here’s how it’s turning out so far..

I really do need to update this more often as it looks like I’ve been crocheting like a ninja and really I just haven’t updated my blog in forever! I’m now going to have a catch up with other bloggers and see what you are all up to. Happy crocheting 🙂
