Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2012

Hi Everyone,

I had a lovely wake up call yesterday morning. The post man arrived with a packet from Deramores. It was the Debbie Bliss Cotton DK yarn I'd ordered so I could enter the Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2012 on Stocki's blog. I think its a brilliant idea and i'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's squares. Check out her blog for information on this project.
I'm using Debbie Bliss Cotton DK, its a 100% cotton. I used colours 13049, 13058, 13055 and 13057. I was delighted when I opened the packet. The colours were yummy, way nicer than I expected. I wish I could buy enough to make a blanket.

I made 6 squares, all granny squares because I love granny squares. The photo of the finished squares below was taken late so the light makes the pink look red. The squares look a lot nicer than the photo shows.

The closing date for finished squares to be in is 31st January. I hope lots of people enter because its a great idea and Jill has put a lot of work into organising this competition. 

Hope everyone's having a happy Tuesday.

Until next time,

Happy Crocheting, x


  1. Your squares look great and I love all those colours. I have managed to get two squares finished but want to get another two done before I sent them off to Jill. It's such a great idea and your right, I imagine it will take alot of work and hours to put them all together!!

  2. Your squares are wonderful. I love the colours you have selected. I´m working on my third square in the moment. It is such a fun project. I can´t wait to see the blanket finished!

  3. Gorgeous squares. I so want to be part of this but haven't managed to get out and buy any cotton yet. I need to get a move on!

  4. I love your squares and the colours are lush
