House-warming Blanket is Finished!

The house warming blanket is finally finished and blocked, just in time for my husband to take it with him and hand it over to his daughter who now share her first house with another girl, so what better to do than to crochet a house warming blanket for her?

I have to say that I am very pleased with how it turned out and would love to make another one for myself but I have so many other items waiting to be finished first before I start a new thing.

The yarn I was using was Drops Fabel and it’s not a good yarn to crochet with because it’s very loosely spun so it splits very easily and that is annoying to say the least, but it turned out to be very good for this blanket.

Yarn: Drops Fabel Print
Colourway: 310 (Sunset) and 400 = Black
Hook: 3 mm

Started: March 17 2019
Finished: June 7 2019

Bordering them together

Next Step!

Now that I have crocheting 103 squares and wanted to start to put them together to see how many extra squares I need to make I noticed that this is taking longer than I thought. But! it’s looking good.

Housewarming Blanket!

My stepdaughter has just moved into her first ever house that she’s sharing with a friend to help with the rent, so to celebrate this event I’m crocheting her a housewarming granny square blanket. I have no idea how many squares I need but time will tell.

I have found this lovely blog that shows how to join granny squares with a beautiful Flat Braid Join between the squares. Absolutely stunning!

I’m in the middle of making a granny square blanket too called the “Friendship Blanket”, where some Facebook Friends in my group there are doing this together. So this will be the way I will join it together.

Filten som tröstar och värmer i sorgen – Mjölby Boxholm Ödeshög – Corren.se – Nyheter Linköping Östergötland

I den djupaste sorg kan trösten komma i oväntad form. När Mia Stéen förlorade sin älskade virkade de okända Facebook-vännerna en kärleksfilt.

I am so glad that I was part of this comfort blanket to Mia after loosing her husband last year. We were a few ladies that started to crocheting granny squares and sent to one of us who would put it all together and send it to her with letters and cards as well from us all.

It’s touching to hear he reading my card out loud (the last one). She is a member in my handicraft group on Facebook. The group is secret and only for 30 members and in Swedish.

Denna filt har jag nu sett lite här och där i olika färger och storlekar. Så jag har nu bestämt mig för att göra denna filt.

 

Zig Zag filtens framsteg

 

Som ni vet så hade jag panik ett tag då jag ej fick tag på mer av Järbos Fuga garn i färgen ljusgrön, men fick tag på den efter ett kort letande. Garnet kom hem och jag kunde fortsätta virkandet på denn filt som jag faktiskt mer och mer börjar tycka om. Från början så var det mest en test att se hur det hela fungerade med att virka denna typ av filt, men ju mer jag höll på, deso mer tyckte jag om den.

Så här ser den ut nu och det är inte mycket kvar på den.

Det jag har kvar att göra ser du på denna bild här under.

Jag har med andra ord passerat mitten på filten och är på väg åt andra hållet med mönstret.

Efter denna filt så är jag sugen på att prova på en Ripple Blanket

Min man har beställt en filt för våran säng så kanske Ripple filten blir bra för den saken, men det får tiden visa när den är gjord.

Må så gott!
