Horay, it is finished :0)
Sorry for the poor photo, but I wanted to share my excitement with everyone. I'll try and get a better photo at the weekend, maybe I'll manage to get a photo of Joshua with his blanket too!
Pattern - Willow Block from Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks with made up shell edging.
Yarn - Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - I think I used about 17 different shades... probably about half a ball of each.
Started: 4th January
Finished: 20th January
Comments: I am amazed how well so many different shades of this yarn go together, but the finished blanket really does gel. I wanted this to be as random as possible, which is hard for my symmetrical brain to cope with, but I think it works. I love the block design, it looks complicated but really isn't and is easy to memorise. If I did it again I think I would use cream and two complimentary colours in each block, as my favourite squares are the ones with cream in.
I wonder what else I can make for the new little man before Saturday??
