After blogging about the blanket I finished in July, I didn't expect to be showing you another finished blanket quite so soon. My first blanket took over a year to crochet, this one just a month, it's my finished item for August.
It's much smaller than my first blanket, there's only forty two squares, and the squares are smaller too, five rounds instead of six, but I decided to use up the yarn which was left over from my last blanket and this was all that was left.
I actually prefer these squares to the ones in my first blanket. Each of the five rounds are a different colour, whereas the squares in my first blanket were three lots of two rounds of the same colour. The colours were still chosen randomly though.
I've used exactly the same coloured yarns in both blankets but they look totally different. You can see my first blanket in my post of 23rd of August.
So shall I tell you who this new blanket is for? Archie of course. He will have it in his bed this winter to keep him nice and cosy. Talk about a pampered pooch.
But in the meantime he has no intention of letting me put it away.
You could say I'm hooked on making blankets now. I've started a new one, but more on that another time.
