Magpie Monday – crochet blanket

October 24, 2011

I’m delighted with my latest second-hand find – it is a handmade crochet blanket I purchased from the Oxfam shop in Beeston on Saturday.

It is such a pretty little blanket with black decorative edging and stitching between each square. The size is 44″/112cm square.

This is a nice addition to my small collection of handmade blankets (as featured in my first Magpie Monday post).

    Lovely blanket. Even though I make these myself I still always pick them up if I spot them at a charity shop…You can never have enough granny squares!

    That’s lovely, and different in colour to any I’ve seen before – they always seem to be very brightly coloured, and this is more muted. Oh, how I wish I could crochet! I keep seeing beautiful crocheted items on blogs and really must give it a go.

    Very pretty, not as garish as some of them!

    I love that particular design in afghans. When my daughter was born someone made her a baby afghan with that design and it was her favorite blanket. Her blanket was shades of pinks and white and she carried that blanket with her until she was three. Thanks for post it brought back good memories.

    Lovely blanket. Around here, people do not appreciate the crocheted blankets. I have several because my Mom used to crochet a lot.

    I love it! Bean and Oz have one each that we inherited when their great nan passed away – they have to keep on reminding me that I’m ‘too big’ for their special blankets!
