The rug formally known as 'Biopsy Blanket' was finished last week.
Shorty is very happy with the result because it is HERS and nobody else has owned it previously.
It is pleasant to lie on and wrap up in and drag around the house.
We have to learn to share it though as the next one might be a while in coming.
We shall call it 'Chemo Crochet' and it shall be Lala's friend.
A merry godmother's work is never done. Anna renamed the blanket 'Rainbow Ripple' and proceeded to knock up a pretty decent emergency spag bog with a frozen lump of mince and selected fridge accessories. Who looks this good after a day Facebook workshopping? Look at the grip on that spoon! Pound it, Anna!
One of Anna's favourite pastimes is putting chillun to bed. The self- bedder chose this friendly spot to curl up tonight.
Then we made each other very tired. It was loverly!
(P.S. For those who wanted to know, the 'recipe' for this blanket was from the Royal Sisters, I think. She calls it a 'chevron blanket'. It is one of those classic nanna patterns that my own Grandma and lots of others used to make a lot. They are still sprinkled throughout our large extended family bringing warmth and nanna love to the offspring. The openness of the weave varies with the needle size. I didn't want it too thick living in Brisbania. This is a nice weight for here. I crochet all the ends in as I go without knotting so there is no finishing off although I may crochet a border onto it when I get some more wool.)
