My Finished 'Dottie Angel' Blanket.............

Yippeee,it's Friday and tomorrow Paige and I are off to the seaside for the week,Mick can't take any time off work but hopefully he will join us Thursday evening with Jodie for the last couple of nights. I will be taking a blog break as there's no WiFi and I'll be lucky if I get any phone reception so will catch up with everyone when I get back.
Last weekend I told you that my crocheted blanket was nearly finished,it is now complete. I'd been trying to teach myself to crochet and to follow a pattern when I saw this blanket on Tif's blog The Ramblings of a Dottie Angel. I can honestly say that Tif's tutorial on this blanket got me on the road to crocheting,it was so easy to follow with clear,concise instructions.I got the crocheted doily pattern from Crochet Spot where you can find lots of great patterns.




I've got a couple of WIP's on the go,here's a quick look.


I'm making a large aran afghan using granny squares,nice and easy and grows very quick,I'm using this lovely colourful yarn.


Also I've got a colourful cushion cover on the go.


Have a great weekend and I'll be back with you when I'm back from my holiday.
