Finally after 67 rounds I have completed my giant granny square that I started with Le mode de Sucrette crochet along.
As usual with each crochet project at the end I reflect on all that has happened in my life as I crocheted along. This project started in June 2011 at the beginning of a new relationship, the weather was cold and many events all collided at once and at times I was not sure how to face the day.
Right from the started I wanted this blanket to be beautiful, the favourite colors of the intended recipient and a little crazy. I started out crocheting a very large swirl to symoblised that it is ok to go a little crazy, just as long as you know your crazy.
Finally the moment arrived where I had finished the blanket. The last of the wool had been used up, the edge was done and the ends sewn in. Here is my tah-dah moment.
The edging is beautiful and my own little creation. I am sure if you were to look at the million patterns on the web you would find it there however I didn’t look and just experimented with what looked good.
Slip stitch, double crochet, half triple crochet, triple crochet with a pivot point, half triple crochet, double crochet and slip stitch.
Lovely wavey, granny goodness that I am now preparing to pack up and send it to my wonderful friend for a xmas present. With this blanket goes all the love and warmth that its creator intended.
