180 Crochet Granny Circles



One hundred and eighty granny circles complete. They are colourful, vibrant and each one unique.

So begins the white borders and piecing them together...




Throughout this journey with each circle I am thinking of our little girl, with this blanket covering her bed. I am thinking about tucking her in at night, reading books to her on her bed, comforting her while she is sick. This blanket is an absolute pleasure to create.

  2. I love that as we craft we put love, thoughts and prayers into the process and so the final product is so much more than yarn cleverly stitched it is a container of our love and care. A tangible piece of love.
    It is going to be beautiful x

  3. Looking fab! And I love what Miriam said 'a tangible piece of love.'

    It seems we have both been making things for our daughters to snuggle under (although yours is a bit more impressive than mine!)

  7. Impressive Sophie! Can't wait to see the finished project! I have a friend who likes to crochet presents for people and she says as she crochets, she is praying for the person receiving her gift. Miriam's comment reminded me of that. x

  8. Wow! I love how handmade things are made with a piece of our soul. It's truly special. She'll take it with her when she leaves home perhaps, it might even cuddle her own children and keep them warm too... <3
