Granny Square blanket

I am more than pleased to have finished my Granny Square blanket. It's really very heavy. Admittedly it doesn't really match the duvet cover but the important thing is that it's warm. It does mess with your head the more you look at it, I think I've inadvertently made one of those magic eye patterns! I used quite a lot of my spare yarn for it but the bigger it got the less of a scrap-busting mission it became. I am pleased with it and as you can see from the picture below Bubba the Bear quite likes it too...

I really like that! How long did it take to make?

How cozy! It looks like you could have busted your whole stash!

Riohnna - Thanks. I'm not really sure how long it took, it's been an after work project for the past three or four weeks. I'll admit to getting a bit bored by the time I got to the massive rounds!

Yoel - I wish I had, I've got lots of little bits still left. I'm a yarnoholic. I made a fair dint in my collection but there's still an awful lot left :-(

It's lovely! And the colours are so harmonious.

Thanks Riikkael - I'm quite pleased with the colours as I just picked them at random!
