Scrap Happy March 2021

A day late, but sometimes life just happens, apologies anyway. Linking with https://talltalesfromchiconia.wordpress.com/2021/03/15/scraphappy-march-4/

for scrap happy day, where lots of other wonderful projects can be found all using scraps of whatever, leftover from whatever to make something magnificent.

I must begin by explaining that the strangest thing has happened- my supply of leftover double knitting acyrillic yarn has gone- there is none left, except for the black yarn which I am using to finish off this crochet scrapy yarn blanket- single bed size I am making for a care home. I have had to buy some more yarn just to finish off the blanket, which is now nearing the end. so without further ado here is

and that is it on a king size bed.

I am adding the final rows of squares right round the outside with black to try to bring it altogther as a whole. As you can see I am tackling all four sides at the same time to try to get different colours on each edge. I have had a couple of evenings just sewing in the ends but I reckon there are a lot more lurking under there!

Who knows this maybe finished in time for April Scrap Happy Day.

  5. This is amazing, Cathy! How generous of you to donate it, I’m not sure if I would have the strength to give it away πŸ™‚

  6. 10 x 10 squares? This looks so cheerful. I know it will brighten someone’s room at the residence.

    • Thanks- I hope it makes someone happy.

      • I worked in a nursing home as a young woman. I always made it a point to make the beds up as nicely as I could. I found with the older population, it is very important to them. I am going to be the exact same way!
