  2. I do like a Helen and have done a few. I also prefer the simpler colour ways which I think show the patterns off better.

  4. Beautiful! Those are almost the same colours I used in my big bedspread project a few years ago (with your seahorse motif on it 😉) and I always seem to come back to this colour palette. I have to force myself to choose different colours for blanket projects! LOL!

    That is so beautiful and what a fabulous present! I love that your family like getting your handmade blankets – 3 of my grandchildren are indifferent or downright sniffy but my eldest grandson dos like one I knitted for him for Uni.


    • How disappointing that your youngsters aren’t keen.
      I often give the children (and adult nephews and nieces) patterns and colours to choose from. When my grandchildren were little, they had very strong choices and opinions! which I always did my best to bring to life, that way they had an investment in the project from the start. Not sure if that is why they all still love the blankets and throws now.

      • Going Batty in Wales

        Because of my husband’s ill health and very poor immune system I saw very little of my grandchildren when they were small. And it was pretty much before the days of Skype/ Zoom/ Facetime. It is only since he died that I have been able to get to know them and as they live in SE England visits were not very often. They enjoyed playing in my workshop and the girls enjoyed sewing with me but ‘hand made’ = ‘home made’ = inferior/ poverty in my D-in-L’s eyes. They will eventually mature enough to get it!

  12. This is stunning and I love the colours you chose. How long did it take to complete?

    • Thank you Jackie. How long an individual project takes is always so difficult to know. I started this one in October 2020. I always have multiple projects on the go and am often crocheting whilst doing other things. Most large throws take me about a year to complete.
