I'm addicted.......

 I'm addicted to blanket making and it will have to stop soon!The above is the one I finished last week for my youngest grandaughter Ruby aged 5.(She lost her first tooth on Friday and was so upset she tried to put it back in!)She can't have it yet until another one is made for her sister Emily who is 7.
This is Emily's.Sorry the photo is on it's side.Blankets are such great projects for the winter as they keep you warm as you are doing them.I have used Stylecraft Special Dk and at £1.30 for 100gr it isn't too expensive.
I am already planning my next one.On a snowy Saturday last weekend I sorted out my craft cupboard(don't you feel good when you have done it) and all my spare bits of yarn are all together in one box and I am just going to make a random, multicoloured blanket.If it looks awful the cat can have it!!

  14. Beautiful blankets - and such great colours.
    My son wanted to hang onto his teeth too - he left presents for the tooth fairy in exchange for keeping the tooth!
