Get Rid of WIP's - Earth Granny

I started this as a quick present for my sister in Cape Town however I never managed to finish it before my niece and nephew went back!!!  I wanted to make her a lap blanket for in the lounge.  She loves natural colours. 

I went through my stash and found 6 balls each of StyleCraft Life that I don't enjoy knitting or crocheting with as it is very thin double knit.

I doubled it and am using a size 8mm hook and chained 150. 

Each colour is 13 rows.  I have since done more that the photos show.  I have completed 2 brown and 2 green so 2 more of each to go!!!  This WIP should be finished at least by Monday!!  Fingers crossed.  I am planning on going around the blanket and that's what Monday is going to be dedicated to.


  1. That's really nice I like the earthy colours, blankets are the best present, I bet your sister will love it!

  2. The textured look of this blanket is lovely and that green looks great against the brown. Look forward to seeing it finished!

  3. Wow! You are trucking along. Can't wait to see it done!

  4. So glad your back. Was missing your updates!
