I'd like to share 3 of my current favourite blankets with you...
The first one is a granny squares blanket which is very old and was actually crocheted by my Nana B.
The second is a recent thrifty find in a York charity shop.
Labelled 'Pet Cover 50p' (hurrah!) it's a small cream Witney blanket in excellent condition.
That was a good find, that came after a hopeless hour in Selby at the charity shops where I found nothing - and saw a (slightly bobbly and faded) jersey Designers at Debenhams dress priced at £15. Honestly. But then, that particular charity shop has had a recent revamp and now has laminate flooring!
Lastly, I received a package from Steph at Curlew Country, who now sells vintage treasures via her blog. This blog, I have to say, is one of my absolute favourites, having read it now for over 3 years. I spotted a gorgeous crochet blanket, and it arrived safely- wrapped in brown paper and baker's twine. I love the colours, especially the geranium red and the hot pink. At the minute it's making the sofa in the conservatory look very festive.
Now my granny squares blanket quota has been met, I am happy to stick with the knitting (under a blanket, of course!) and for the moment ignore my crochet fear!
