I have also been on a use up mission I had lots of wool from magazines which I wanted to use up so I have made a blanket. Inspired by several of the blogs I read. Lemondedesucrette and attic 24 I decided I would have a go at crochetting a blanket.
I started by making 180 circles like these
Then when I had enough I started joining them usign Attic24's wonderful joining as you go tutorial I must admit this is much easier than sewing all the pesky little things together!
This is row three The blanket consists of 12 squares wide by 15 squares deep no colour order just randomly place.
Finally finished or so I thought until Dh looked at it and said could we have another coupld of rows on the top before you put the border on So being the
Mug Loving wife I am said yes.
I know need to make another 36 circles so that i can join them on to make the blanket longer! So that it can be used on our bed when the winter comes Hopefully next update will be of a finished blanket!
A close up of the blanket just because I am so amazed by it
