In February this year I finished my Granny Square blanket after working on it for five months. I enjoyed making it soo much and knew straight away that I wanted to make another blanket. But until I decided on which yarn, which type of blanket and crucially how to finance another blanket, I decided it might be better (ie cheaper) to work on some smaller things.
I started making this cushion cover with Rowan DK cotton that I had gathered when making hearts and scarves.
The pattern is a simple "no seam Granny Square" that I found at Chez Crochet (scroll to the bottom of the page).
I've still got about another 12 rounds to do before it's finished, and right now its not seeing much action as I am really absorbed in my ripple blanket. Ripple, ripple, ripple.
The rhythm of this particular pattern is so
addictive and soothing. I've got a long train journey in a two weeks
time when we'll be travelling from our home in North Yorkshire down to
my parents in Dorset. Three trains, seven hours, ripple, ripple all the way.
