It's a.....

Granny Stripe!!
Well I suppose to be grammatically correct I should say "It's an Attic24 Granny Stripe"
& I am totally in love with it!

I started it the other day, it's blanket number 9 for the Neonatal Funday. I got bored (well bored is the wrong word, but I needed a change from millions of half treble crochets!!) and just had to try and see if I could do the Granny Stripe. Turns out I can!

The wool is one of the ones I picked up at the market for £1.90 a ball so it's not really the perfect wool for prem babies so the blankets made of this wool will probably end up going home with someone not on the unit, but it's got a strand of something in it that gives it a shiney effect (I can't describe it but its there!)

I have to say Granny Stripe is one of my fave patterns that I've just picked up & had a go at. Although I did fluff up the foundation chain by one stitch, but I'll hide that when I finish up (shh don't tell anyone haha!)

The other day the postman came and brought me some presents...

I was so excited!

The book is the one referred to in Attic24's snake Tah-dah! blog post and I had a massive case of the wanties! And it finally arrived! I haven't managed to sit and look through it properly yet (I couldn't divert my attention further) but on flicking through the pages there's so many gorgeous pictures I can't wait! I've put my name down for a craft swap on the parenting forum for Christmas so I'll hopefully get to use some bits!

And the giant bag, oh how I love you giant bag!! It is for my wool stash. All those pictures from the stash blog entry are happily tucked up in there as well as more. Oh how I love it! Its the Night Owl bag from wantneedlove.com There's so much beautiful stuff on their site!

Right, back to crocheting. These blankets won't make themselves!

(oh & to add, no UTI but the pain is still there, they just don't know what it is but I'm ok)

2nd edit to add.. take a look at Country Rose's blog. Gorgeous blog & she's currently running a giveaway!

Thanks for leaving such a lovely message on my blog.

Wowee, I can't believe how many blankets you've made!! I think my next project is going to be either a granny stripe or a large granny square blanket (love the 'shell effect' edging you've done on one of yours).

Happy hooking!
