My first granny square blanket

So, this is the first granny square blanket. Actually, it was just about my first project!!

Was so proud of this :) In fact, it impressed so much I had my Mum ask me to make her a blanket, for her king sized bed. (It took me most of a year! or two... *shifty look*)

Granny squares can look so well together. These squares all have the same colour, and there are just 5 variations. It's been finished with a double crochet (UK) border, which leaves a defined ridge and gives the blanket a bit of a 3D feel. It's made with 100% wool, which makes it on the heavy side, but pretty toasty.
