Off the Hook!!

My first bed size blanket is DONE!! Yipee....After everything possible happened, including running out of yarn, I finally managed to complete this project! I am soooooo jumpingly happy with the result.

Are you ready for a stripey feast??
Here it comes............

 I feel any blanket deserves its own border. Enhances the look and gives it a totally new experience.

 Lotsa snaps aka Lucy Style..

The play of sun on the Blanket.

The thing about crochet and me is I love it tooo much as  a craft :) The days when i dont crochet, i notice that i am noticeably irritated and down on patience. Crochet helps soothe my nerves, calm my mind and gets me into focus. Being a mommie for two small kids is totally insane. There are good days, there are days and then there are the BAD days..On those bad days i look to my hook to keep me calm. Also looking at my kids photos where they are all smiling helps me!!

But all said and done, I love this blanket. It has been an amazing experience right from the first row till the edging. It has given me many heart skipping moments and countless happy dancing in the mind moments:) It will be missed thoroughly on my hook.

I always have a need to do small projects as soon as a big one is done. Just for seeing the results soon. Here is a sneak peek into my next one.

I do love blues after this. Just in crochet cotton though ;)
A happy sunny cheerful weekend to all my fellow bloggers!!!


  1. ooooooo your stripes are delicious, and i LOVE that edging, it's so pretty without being over the top.

    Would you please let me know where you found the pattern for those lovely flowers, is it the one from Rosehip blog? I'm looking to make some red/white/blue ones for a jubilee street party outfit on Tues xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Thanks Lucy all your sweet and kind words.

    I am planning on a rose doily and here is the Ravelry link for that pattern. The rose is from this one.

    Have a great jubiliee celebration and looking forward to your clicks from the same!

    Einen sonnigen Dienstag wünsch ich Dir
