I have at last finished the crochet blanket I started about three days before Francesca was born. She is 4 weeks old this month! I've had to remember how to crochet since 30 something years ago and it is all my own design and I am very pleased with the result. It is made out of unshrinkable worsted wool. Although the label has a French brand name the wool is evidently from English sheep and made in the UK! The Granny squares were quick to make but assembling them and tying in the loose ends took longer. I calculated it is worth about 30 hours of labour, not counting the unravelling moments but we won't tell about the cost!! I can't wait to have a photo of Francesca on it!!!
