My big crochet blanket has already passed the halfway point. This is now it looks now. The photo shows the colours very well. (Please ignore the creases....it has been folded up.) I think I was very lucky to find the job lot of teal Aran yarn in a charity shop. It complements perfectly the cream and beige that was donated to me by Joanne of the Cup On The Bus blog.
I'm being very good about crocheting at least 2 rows of this blanket at the end of each day. That doesn't sound like much but I have other smaller projects in progress and the calmer life I was looking forward to after a hectic summer has been put on hold by some big DIY projects at home.
