Crochet Blanket

Last week a friend at work taught me how to crochet. I have since put this in practice and used up some little balls of wool I had by making granny squares!!

The blanket is now taking shape but I think I still have a long way to go before it's finished!!

I've used up all the pink and cream wool I had so I'm now introducing a new colour. Its actually more purple than it looks like in the pic.

I have just visited 'Gemmipop designs' blog and she is also making a granny squares blanket. She has introduced some flowery squares into hers which are
lovely. I'm hoping she will share the pattern with me so I can give it a go!! Hopefully my next update will be my first attempt at a flowery square!!

Here we go, my first flowery square!! It took a lot longer to do than I thought but now i have the hang of it hopefully my next few won't take so long!
