I've started to crochet a blanket

Late last year, I bought wool to crochet the Vibrant Vintage Blanket from Cypress Textiles. This was a free SAL that she ran during 2016. Well, this weekend I finally got my crochet out and made a start. These four squares are not perfect and I admit there was a lot of 'reworking' at times but I finally got there.

I've realised that if I make an effort I could have this blanket completed in time for Christmas. I like the thought of it, so watch this space. :)

Gifted Gorgeousness - November

Gifted Gorgeousness is the brainchild of Jo of Serendipitous Stitching where we showcase the stitchy gifts that we have made and received. For further information on what it is and how it works, please visit Jo here.

A short post this time as during November my stitching has been mainly for Christmas exchanges, which means that I don't have much to show this month. However, now that Clare (Aimetu's Stitching) has received the ornament that I made for her church Christmas tree, I can post a picture. You can read more about Clare's church Christmas tree here on her blog.
