I’m happy to announce the coming out of my Groovy blanket. It’s been machine-washed and dried and is good to go.

Thanks to Season 10 of Bones on Netflix, the end-weaving was painless. All 500-plus of them.

The wave patterned border isn’t as smooth as I’d like, but at least the washing/drying has relaxed the tendency of the border to curl up.

I’m now looking at my other blanket, stalled halfway through. It’s my only WIP so I should probably get on with that, eh!

I hope that if you are a Canadian citizen you voted today. It’s after 7pm here in BC and I haven’t a clue whether any results have been released yet. No doubt I will hear the news sometime this evening and I’m hoping for a joyful dance rather than a disappointed shoulder slump!!! We shall see…

Here’s the progress on the groovyghan-inspired blanket.

7 dots made, one bordered in black and block complete

14 grannies made, 6 fully bordered in black, one with black border in progress, 7 yet to complete

Once these are done, I can start on a stripey strip.

Very tired, long day, so you’re being spared lots of chat! Good night.

Inspired by the Groovyghan

imageA while back, I made a colourful Groovyghan from this pattern. It was free when I downloaded it, but I believe it’s a paid pattern now. My version is here. 

Many many people have made this blanket, some with adaptations, and now I’m making another in a more limited colour palette to use up my older acrylics. I get the urge to purge every now and then and so far I have crocheted up almost ten squares in the last few days. When I do the last round on each, I’ll use black and use a join-as-you-go method to join them into strips. I’m not going to do flower blocks this time, but I do plan to make dot blocks and stripey sections similar to the first one I did.

I have an idea who this one is for, but I’m not saying yet.

A friend and I and our 17 year old sons went out hiking today on a new (to us) trail. It was fairly challenging and we had a good workout and were rewarded with an awesome view from the top. It was a bit of a drive to get there but totally worth it, and we intend to try a different trail on the same mountain next time. And my son drove us home so he got some more practice towards upgrading from an L to an N driving licence.

Aaaaaaand, now I really must get to bed. Have to be up early in the morning. Good night, peeps, and have a  fabulous day.
