I’ll crochet some more border for a proper edging, as much as I can before the grey runs out, and I’m done. This is a warm and cosy lap blanket as the double crochet makes a thick fabric. Someone, somewhere will hopefully appreciate this quality. I joined the blocks with a combination join. This is WS together, 1 dc, ch 2, miss 2 st and 1dc into both loops of the stitches. If you dislike the raised line you can hold the RS together, so it’s on the back.
This week I’m reading Sweet Caress: The Many Lives of Amory Clay by William Boyd. It’s a fictional biography of a woman who lived through the great events of the 20th century. I’m rather perturbed by the blurb which describes the book as ‘his greatest achievement to date.’ Having loved Any Human Heart (and enjoyed lots of Boyd’s other books) I’m not yet convinced of this, but am enjoying the read.
I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along, as usual.
Love your colour combo. Perfect for a snuggly lap blanket
Thank you. It’s kept me warm some evenings.
I love a good game of yarn chicken!
Bit stressy though, isn’t it?
i’ve never read anything by Boyd. I take it you’d recommend highly?
Lap blanket very smart. Someone will be in the lap of luxury with it on. sorry. Looks like you only have a couple more laps to go before it’s finished. sorry. Recovering from major dental surgery – probably took too many painkillers…..hahahahah xxx
Medium highly, yes. I loved the audio version of Any Human Heart, the narrator is superb.
Thank you. And yes, too many pain killers but it’s always nice to hear from you, looped or not! xx
