Stash Busting: Finished Blanket !

Hello all !!

How are you all doing ?

I'm happy to finally have finished my daughter's blanket, which I started back in . . . October.
October ?? Yes. It took me about 10 months to finish it.

I have enjoyed making it so much, all the colour changing, the yarn I have used is so nice to work with.
It is 50% Acrylic 50% wool and the colours. . . I love the colours, so cheerful !! Well, I think so.

And what I love about it all is that I still have yarn left so I will be thinking of making something with it.

For the border of this blanket I tried several options, I undid some rounds, etc and in the end I went for this simple border as I thought there is already a lot going on in the blanket so for much that I love lacy borders it did not look right on this one, too busy !

Border is number 81 of Around the Corner, Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman.

And I was able to fix that little 'problem' I mentioned in my last post, and actually it turned out straight forward to fix and easy. The yarn in the centre round had got loose and so I pull it and knotted it back and secured it well.





And now I leave you with some pictures from the main square (Plaza de Cervantes) of the town where I live, Alcala de Henares. I love this place and the old centre of the town is World Heritage Town by UNESCO and the birthplace of Cervantes.





Have a lovely week !!
