An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

A friend of mine, Carien, asked me if I'd help her crochet a blanket. She wants it finished before Summer. The days are beginning to lengthen, Summer is on its way, so we had better get on with it. Carien bought yarn in shades of blue. First step was to decide on a colour scheme and stitch count. Then we each made a square and measured it so that we can work to the same tension. So far, so good, we both have squares that measure 13 cm across. I'm not sure how big the blanket is to be, but I'll work until I've finished the three balls of yarn I have.
