Blaithin Blanket is Finished!

 Two skeins of yarn later and my Blaithin Blanket  has a border!   The pattern for this blanket came out in September of 2019.   So what the heck it only took me a little over two years to finish. 


Pay no attention to the quilt on the bed....I had to find someplace to spread it out! 


80 squares all different colors, the pattern was supposed to be a stash buster!   It is a very heavy warm blanket....I was very cozy when I was finishing the border.   

So nice to have something finished!

  2. This is beautiful! I recall my mom and Grandma working on one of these together. They loved to crochet together and make quilts, blankets, scarves, and mittens.

  3. I always felt good when I finished a big project like this. And I used to LOVE chrocheting big afghans in the winter because they kept me so warm, especially when I lived in the UP of Michigan in an upstairs flat of an old house that was so drafty!

  4. Looks wonderful! I love the different colors, stitches and squares. And it does look very warm on this chilly November morning. How satisfying to have a finished project, too. Of couse we snuck a peek at the quilt underneath, too.

  7. Love your afghan. I started Spice of life (free pattern) in Christmas colors. First crochet blanket in 15 years. Loving it. Was able to get 1/2 done in a week, then had to go back to Christmas present knitting.

  9. You should be very proud of yourself! That is a lot of work. You did a beautiful job. It seems I remember when you started it, you mentioned every square is a different pattern.

  13. I can imagine how warm it would be to sleep under such a blanket. I have a throw blanket made by my great grandmother that she gave me as a young kid. I don't often use it but I do enjoy it and the memories whenever I do.

  31. Two years - not bad at all. It's lovely! Cozy and warm is my speed nowadays. Two years is about my average even for small projects. I get so easily distracted nowadays. I only crochet during the cold months, for some reason, so it's time for me to finish a blanket (not a granny square) that I started in (drum roll) 2018. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
