    This blanket is very attractive. I especially like the trim! Your little guy seems to love it.
    As far as any ideas…maybe a handbag for your Mom or a Mom as a gift for Mother’s Day.
    Keep us informed!
    Ta Ta for now,

    I’ve been saving my scraps and now I know what for. I love the fact that it’s brightly colored and yet not overwhelming. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts.

    What a beautiful throw! I love all of the colors and the pretty border. Right now I am making a shawl for my cousin, and I have plans to make a baby outfit for a friend. I can’t wait to see what you make next!

    Hi, what a beautiful throw, I love your colours, lovely border. I have never crocheted that granny square. I must have a go, I am a little scared of the join as you go method. Looking forward to seeing what you crochet next x

    I love your throw! It’s really nice! Please remember, it takes a while making one like that cause you make the granny squares and then they have to be put together. Have you ever tried loom knitting? There are circle ones and straight ones. It’s really easy. Just a suggestion.

    Janette, that is a really lovely blanket! I especially love the pale grey, around the circle, and the color of the trim! Nice work! The granny square is so versatile, isn’t it! how bout making a pillow to match! xxoo

    Hi Janette, just love the throw, would love to have a go, could you post the details, ie. how many squares did it take, the measurements, how did you work out the use of colour, was there a sequence, did you repeat squares, did you working out a pattern or plan, I would love to know, pleeeease.

    This is amazing, and exactly what I was looking for in a tutorial. Your photographs – in all of your tutorials – are so clear and helpful. I love how you use colors to make it easier for us to see specific steps. Thank you!
