Shades of Grey - CYDA DT

Shades of Grey - No, I haven't read the book, but just about every other woman seems to be at the moment!  Anyway, it is our challenge for this fortnight at Craft Your Days Away:


I've gone for a fairly neutral grey and white with this crochet blanket that I've just finished.  Like I've said in previous posts, I haven't made a card for ages because I can't put my crochet down!  I know that a crochet blanket doesn't make a really great picture - but it makes a really useful item!

Remember that we are a multi crafts challenge blog so you can show us your paper crafting, stitched, knitted creations or anything else so long as you've made it!  We are being sponsored by The Pretty Little Ribbon shop who are offering a lovely bundle of goodies from their shop as a prize (and they have a sale on at the moment - well worth checking out!).   Pop over to the challenge blog for more details.

I did think about crocheting some flowers to add to the blanket - in a little cluster - not sure yet, I'm still thinking about it.  I've added a little scallop border because when I'd finished the blanket it just needed a little something extra.  Not bad for a first attempt - if I do say so myself!

Thanks for looking - enjoy the sunshine if you're in the UK.  We haven't seen it for weeks!
