At last I have some pics of the first finished Granny Square blanket.
This one was done in a variegated wool which reduces the need for sewing in endless ends - crafty! I do like the way the colours change as it goes round.
I'm thinking it should be called the Wimbledon Blanket as the colours are perfect and by the time Wimbledon comes around again, we'll be needing it!
It is a lovely, soft, chunky wool, hooked with a 7mm hook, approx 42 rounds and finished off with 4 rounds of sc. I actually ran out of wool and had to call around to track down 3 more balls.
Daughter is delighted.
