Hurrah!I think when all else is failing in your crafting world, the best plan is to fall back on the granny square. Thanks for all your knitting advice. I have decided to just put it down for a while. This particular blanket, however, has been on the go since August.
The wool was all donated a few years ago and I tried to knit a rather gorgeous Kaffe Fasset cardigan in 2107 but in reality it looked awful - that's magazine modelling for you!
I rolled up the yarn and saved it for another day. I chose a colour palette for a boy, removing the pink and red from the balls above.
Happily, I just chipped away making little squares here and there, throwing them into a basket. I left long tails on each one to use for sewing up which I did with a large darning needle to keep it nice and flat. Sewing together and finishing the ends, what a great idea.
My favourite border of crab stitch (reverse dc) adds a fuss free edge, especially on a baby boy blanket.
I have been playing with my dad's old camera. He used to love photography and I have enjoyed trying out its features. I like the way it gets a really good depth of field fading out in the background as above.
Maybe I can get some better winter blog photographs which I have always struggled with in the past. I did a photography GCSE at college in 1990. I wonder what I can remember about F stops and aperture settings! We'll see. Jo xx
