Last year I kind of started a tradition of making myself a blanket with yarn that Keith got me for my birthday. I'm always buying yarn, but I never really make anything for myself. So when Keith surprised me with a ton of yarn last year, I decided to make myself a blanket. This year, he took me out & told me to get what I wanted. I picked out 7 different colours and decided to make another blanket. But it took me a while to figure out what kind of blanket to make. I've made a few different crocheted blankets in the past, and kind of wanted to do something different. I decided on the granny stripe blanket, which is pretty similar to a few blankets I've already made, but a bit different.
ANYWAY, here is the blanket! It's grown quite a bit since I took these photos the other day:
For those of you who knit or crochet (or really make anything!), do you ever make something for yourself? Or are you always giving things away &/or selling them? The only things I ever really make for myself are blankets, and I love my growing collection!
