I started making this crochet blanket for one of my grand daughters last winter and with only about 6 weeks to go until the weather starts to cool here I better get it finished. Besides that, I have 3 other blankets to make as well!
This pattern is just the classic granny, well I think it is 🤔 put it this way, it’s how I was taught when I was a child. 3 double crochets into each space, no chain between and 3 dble crochet 3 chain and another 3 double crochet into the corner space, does that sound about right? I would be keen to hear how others do it!
So we are fortunate enough to have dozens of Crows Ash trees on this farm. Crows Ash trees have the most amazing seed pods that drop around this time every year. The trees seem to lose their leaves and are left with hundreds of this prehistoric looking seed pods which are great for crafts and DIY if you have a good imagination.
So what I decided to do with them this year is paint them gold for decorations on the tree and in a basket I had that I painted white.
I still have a wreath to make and some more decorations for the tree. We are heading back up the paddock to get some more, I feel like it’s such a waste to leave them all their all over the ground but I can’t think of any other projects! So I will keep you posted on the wreath, hopefully I can get it started next week!
