Mini Beast from the East

Hello folks.

Yes, it is back again.  The Beast from the East has dropped more snow on us, just when the birds were singing, the daffodils were just about to come out and everything was getting a bit warmer and well,  spring-like.  Now I like a snow day or two as much as the next man ~ we've had four, yes FOUR! this year but I'm all over it now.  The flipping' snow can GO AWAY.  
I've been working on the Wedding Present Blanket, this is the one for my teacher.  These are large granny squares of 11 rounds of colour and 3 rounds of cream.  I laid them all out on the floor and decided that it was looking a bit blue, I seem to have lots of shades from baby blue, to turquoise, to navy.  
I have some of the colours on display in my cube unit in the craft room and the bottom row caught my eye.
So I'm now trying to tone the blanket down with brown, beige, grey and white.  I'm pleased with this square so I shall try and put (at least) one of the colours in each new square I make.  The wedding is in August which seems like a long way away but I don't want to be finishing off the night before so I'm having a push now.

I've been out and brushed the snow off the car in anticipation of tomorrow's journey to work and it was really cold.  I'm hoping it will have melted by then but it might just freeze. *sigh*  

Have a good week, bye for now...........Clicky Needles.


  1. what a lovely wedding present.I,too,am fed up of this blessed snow!!!

  2. Good job on an heirloom gift of crochet for the wedding. Haven't seen you visit my blog of late.. tsk tsk. :-) Have a super week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Lovely crochet and it's spring this Virginia and snow is expected. We've had our worst snow storms in March so I'm ready for anything. Except I need to get my yarn and needles out for a new project. Visiting around blogland and stopped here; so glad I did.

  4. We've certainly had plenty of snow just lately, I just hope we've seen the last of it now, though we're supposed to be getting another cold snap over Easter. The blanket is looking lovely, what a wonderful gift.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
