The Completed Rainbow 'Skittles' Blanket

Look what's finally finished!! My largest ever crochet project and first ever completed blanket.. it isn't actually for me, I wish I could keep it it's so darn pretty! I know the little girl it's meant for will love it. It's nearly the size of our queen bed (it's meant for a single bed) and each band of colour took an hour to crochet; I also learnt to crochet the alphabet for it so pretty darn proud of myself at the moment! The alphabet pattern was not the easiest thing to follow but I got there eventually. I was asked to make this for a friend a long time ago (nearly 4 months!) but I was too sick for the first couple of months with (all day) morning sickness and it threw a huge unpleasant spanner in the works when it came to working on this order. Thankfully (and I am extremely grateful to you for this!) I have very patient friends, and I am finally pleased to announce it is done :o)

    1. Steal away! :) My friend wanted her daughter's name to be in rainbow colours and I really wanted them to 'pop' against the background! Thankyou for visiting on this happy Hookin' hump day! Every day should be a happy hookin' one ;)
