Ta-da!!
The crochet blanket pile in the sitting room is getting bigger. The blue corner-to-corner blanket is the latest addition on top of the pile. The Marble chunky has worked up really well. Of course I finished this just in time for the hot weather, but it will be there for whenever we need a thick snuggly blanket.

Blanket pile!

Here it is draped over a chair to show off the variegated yarn.

Blue corner-to-corner blanket

In other news, I strimmed the top strip of grass outside the back door. I was thinking of bringing the patio table out of the garage, but the rain that was forecast has arrived, so I'll wait for the next spell of fine weather. Not sure when that will be.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I find knitting very slow compared to crochet, but I'm trying to do more knitting as it's better for sweaters. But there's no way I'd attempt to knit a blanket. It would take me decades!

I like the corner-to-corner pattern because it creates an interesting texture which looks really good with that particular yarn.

That's lovely. But if you leave it there it will fade in the sunshine, alas.

Don't worry. That's not where the blanket actually lives. It was just posing for a photo. :)
