So I bought three shades of a thickish wool, the equivalent of DK, maybe even slightly thicker, but definitely not chunky. So I'm going back to basics with this project. Ok, I'm not using scraps, which traditionally granny square blankets were made from, but I am using just basic and cheap wool. It's only a personal project, but I remember from my childhood having my very own crocheted granny blanket. Times that I was ill, I'd get tucked up in bed with it. With winter well and truly on it's way, I fancy having an 'old' blanket I can snuggle up with in front of the telly on a cold day. It's also something I can work on with no pressure or deadline.
I also managed to snap up a new handbag whilst shopping! My spree was cut short by Theo coming out of the barbers - there was a massive sale in one of the shoe shops. Had I not taken so long in choosing wool, I might have made it before getting caught! There's always next week for that though! (Or if he reads this, while he's at work!)
