Crochet Update

I have been AWOL  in our caravan enjoying the wonderful weather, so my posting and commenting has been rather thin of late.  But, I would like to say a BIG, BIG Thank You  for remembering me and visiting my blogs.

In March of this year I started to crochet a blanket made from balls of yarn in my stash, no new yarn - well almost none, just the odd one or two LoL  I managed a few squuares then nothing that is until this week.


The weather was so hot this is where I sat during the day,  
my little crochet corner on the side decking.




 I've used three  different shades of Blue
6 x 6 = 36, five round granny squares,  with a different coloured centre

Three shades of  Peach/Orange
as above



Three shades of  Pink
as above


I am now working with  Lavender, and there is  Green and Yellow to go.  If my maths is right I will have  have 216 squares to join into making a  24 x 9 row blanket (she says hopefully), well that's my plan.

I'm thinking of joining the squares  with Parchment (Stylecraft Special DK) as one of the centre squares is this colour, so no extra new colour.

Thank you for visiting me, your comments are always welcome.
