A Granny A Day x 64 days
Pattern: Jane Brocket's Sunburst Flower Blanket (from The Gentle Art of Knitting and Mollie Makes issue 2)
I crocheted one granny a day for 64 days, making a perfect 8x8 square. Had I not used the yarn to make my stool cover, I might have had enough yarn for a 9x9 blanket, whoops!. However, I am thrilled with my perfectly perfect lap/picnic blanket. It's just beautiful in its plain-ness, and I am extra chuffed with my choice of colours. As I was low on yarn, I simply crocheted around the squares with two granny rows. Nothing fancy, just plain and simple. I joined the squares on the go, and luckily managed to weave most of my ends in as I went along too.
I've even got something in my basket happening with the leftover yarn...
