Friday Finish Off


I’m so excited about this blog post as I’ve been working on and off on this project since the middle of January for a special person... Samantha’s Dad, William. 

Christmas last year I gave Samantha a blanket called Tea On The Green that I’d spent time making from July till November.  Her dad fell in love with it and asked if he could have one for himself in ‘manly’ colours. So I set upon choosing a colour selection and Stylecraft double knit suited the briefing perfectly. 

Now like Sam’s blanket, William’s blanket travelled everywhere with me including my holiday in May just like Sam’s did last September. I kep Samantha up to date on progress all the way through knowing how much William was waiting for it. He’d been talking about this blanket for months so I knew it just had to be perfect for him. And voila at 3pm yesterday it was completed and off I trotted to my local park for a photo shoot, just like I did with Sam’s. 

Here are some photos. 

The flowers and leaves were crocheted from patterns in various books and then stitched on separately. I even found a pattern for Sweet Williams, just for that extra touch of love.  

And personalised it with his name on the bottom panel. 

I have loved every stitch of this blanket and know that it’s going to a very good home and will be loved and cherished too. 

I wish I was a fly on the wall when Samantha gives her dad it but I’ve been promised a photograph. 

Take care
