Crochet squares

Last year I made 1000 crochet squares. I have recently started to join them together and this is my progress so far.

400th post

This is my 400th post. I am so happy about that! My daughter always encourages me to post on here and on Instagram about all things that I like the look of! Thanks for everyone who ;likes and comments on my posts.

 

Knitted blanket

In my last post I mentioned my colleague, who is partially blind. Last week she asked me if I can mend this blanket, which is full of holes. This blanket belongs to her father – he is 90 years old and still uses it. His grandmother made it to for him!! I took it home and I stitched all the holes and the seams. I looked at the knitting and the pattern his grandmother used. It was mitered knitting squares. The wool is so soft and all made from the same kind of wool. It is seven by ten squares, each square around measures around 5 inches. Then she knitted the stripes around it.

 

Blanket

My colleague, who is partially blind, knitted these squares and I helped her by stitching them together to make this blanket. This is her fifth one. I have blogged about her other blankets in Nov 2014, Nov 2016 and Dec 2016.

Scarf

I finished knitting this scarf for myself.
