Rainbow Blankets - Finished!!!!

Yes...I've finally finished these two blankets that I was making for my daughters. I started these last year, had to stop in the summer because it was too hot to have them out and anywhere near me, then I couldn't do them before Christmas because I was busy doing things for the craft fair. So just before and after Christmas I managed to finish them and then photograph them with my new birthday camera. I'm very pleased with these. They look lovely and were fun to do, my daughters love them.

Because I wanted quite specific colours I did end up having to buy quite a lot of yarn so not exactly the stash busting project I originally started! Lots of people saw me making them where I do my reception work and asked if I could make them one, but to be honest it took so long that I don't really want to make them again. Plus I couldn't actually charge for the time taken so they wouldn't be worth my while. I think things like this should stay a labour of love.


  1. Those are so pretty!! I've started a couple of scrapghans, but I fear they're going to take years to finish.

  2. Hello there :) Thanks for commenting! How'd you find me?

    A knitter! Hooray! I crochet, but someday I have every intention of learning to knit also...

  3. HI,

    I love the color combination. What yarn did you use? Looks great!!

  4. These are really pretty afghans! Such vibrant colors and a really nice design. I don't blame you for not wanting to make more, I am the same way. They are so beautiful but I just hate the amount of time it takes to crochet them, plus doing the same thing over and over and over just drives me up the wall. But you did a great job and I'm sure your daughters will cherish them always.

  5. Love it! These remind me of when I was a kid. This is something I definitely want to learn how to do someday. I will add it to the list!

  6. Hi! You have a wonderful blog and I'm following you too :)
    Your blankets amazed me really. So colorful and big. I can hardly make something bigger then a pillowcase. Oh and your pillowcase is really beautiful too.
    Have a nice day!
