My 64 Crayon blanket is finished at long last!! I checked on my Ravelry page and I actually started it on January 1st 2013, so it's been a long time in the making. It was a skein of Noro yarn that got me back into knitting again and I have been acquiring balls of Noro Silk Garden for the last few years. Some have come as souvenirs from as far afield as Canada and Dublin! This pattern was the perfect way to use them all up and show off the beautiful colours of the yarn. I ended up knitting 4 narrow strips and 3 wide strips. I did a crochet border once I'd put all the strips together - 4 rounds of double crochet, and I'm happy with the way it finishes the blanket off. So without further ado, let me present to you my gorgeous 64 Crayons blanket!
I bet you're wondering where Flo is aren't you?! She's not normally one to miss out on a photo opportunity with a blanket, but she was fast asleep inside her furry igloo and didn't even notice that I was outside! (The light patches on the blanket are where the sunlight was coming through the leaves on the tree behind the bench!)
Here are some of my favourite colour combinations............
I cannot begin to tell you just how much I love this blanket! It is going to live on the sofa in the living room. I reckon I'm going to have to fight Mr JK and Flo for it tho'!! It'll be the perfect blanket for snuggling under this autumn. I might just be willing to share! xxx
