Tilda Thursday!

Well its certainly cooled down again here in Norfolk and there was even some reports of a bit of the white stuff this morning!! In all honesty the craftroom was a bit un-inviting today owing to the drop in temperature but I got a few new bits in the post and just had to use them.
Happy Easter.

Cosy Blanky!

Here's the culprit, the blanket thats kept me away from my craftroom for the last few weeks.
I made this for an elderly lady I occaisonally provide homecare for. I hope she enjoy's the suprise when she receives this in the post in the next few days.

I used a 3.5mm crochet hook and 5 balls of 100gm 4ply baby soft wool and made the pattern up as I went along using Double, Treble and popcorn stitches starting with a basic afgan square.
