I want a blanket!

I spent a few evenings over christmas snuggled up under one of these blankets by Binty, and decided that i was very jealous and needed to make a blanket of my own!
I wanted to make one with some granny squares...which i have never done I made a few samples. One granny square, one other kind of crochet thing (?) and i started a square of knitting...but after the quick crocheting, knitting took forever and i lost patience.
Anyway i decided that crocheting was loads of fun (and quick) but the wool was boring and i didn't want so many MummySew uncovered some old balls of furry furry wool from some long forgotten project, and I got to work!

Its the perfect wool as i wanted something really warm, snuggley and heavy for these cold wintery days.

    I find crochet to be easier and faster than knitting.

  5. I crochet as well and I agree - I LOVE how quick it is! Someday I will learn to knit but I am too fond of the hook. :) Post a picture of the full blanket when it's done - I'd love to see! (Be my Blog Follower swap on Swap-Bot, dmathanas)
