I love Grannies!

Good Afternoon,

This morning I received a parcel from Sally here in the UK. She has very kindly made these two Blankets for the Elderly. What a  surprise this morning I had no idea.  The first one a traditional Granny Square Blanket made in every colour you could imagine. What a fantastic way to use up un-wanted yarn.

The second is a Granny Square Blanket again made with smaller Squares. I love the colours in both Blankets  and both have really good complimentary borders.

What a joy Sally! Thank you very much indeed. You have spent quite a few hours working on these two Blankets and I really appreciate your help.

Let's take a look at them now.

A gorgeous blanket.

Fantastic work.

I've made a Slide Show now for you! Enjoy looking at these two Blankets.

Thanks Sally.
