Coming home from holidays I was bored in the car so when we were leaving Coffs Harbour I got Kev to stop at Spotlight so I could get some wool to make a baby blanket for the new gran baby ...
Well I was lucky the wool was all 30 -40% off so I did really well.
I bought 2 different types of wool....One bumpy and one with long strands and a size 8 crotchet hook.
I had no idea how it would make up but I liked the combination and thought it should look good..
And I was right with my choices it is making up wonderfully.It is so thick it will be great for winter.
I made it 50 stitches wide and it takes a ball of each wool to do 2 1/2 rows .Lucky I bought 10 rolls of each.
I did a bit in the car coming home but soon tired of it so I am finishing it at home.Can't wait till it is done....
This is a close up of the blanket.It is so thick.
Snow spike is a multi coloured wool with a light blue and a darker blue thread in it and the other is
Stellar which is just a long hair yarn but crocheted together looks fantastic.
What do you think?
