Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

I finally put the finishing touches to the crochet cottage garden blanket from the Cal I took part in last year. All the blocks were taken from Jan Eaton’s book 200 crochet blocks. We crocheted all the blocks in the book.I used some of the left over wool to make some flowers to add onto the blanket. What do you think- is it a cottage garden blanket?

This is the first blanket I have made which hasn’t just been an enormous granny square.

Joining with Woolhogs made it challenge, believe me it was quite a challenge, see  here
