A Completed Edge!

Happy Saturday!  Just popping by to show you two things :-

The first is the Edge of my Plain Granny Square blanket finished. 

My blanket "frame" is complete - I did tinker around with several colours, but settled for this solid colour frame with an added lemon stripe.  The stitch is double crochet (UK terms) and the edge of the edge is done in Picot stitches, just 3 chains double crochet into middle chain and then miss a stitch and double crochet into next.  It makes a lovely but not too frilly edging.  I really love how the dark blue helps to intensify the other colours in the blanket.

I still have some extras embellishments that I am going to add to this blanket so hopefully will show you the Ta Dah moment next week.

The second thing I wanted to show you was this:-

Just look how this Amyrillis is growing!  Two beautiful flowers about to emerge!  It has been a slow grower, but no wonder with feeding two stems!

Can't wait for this beauty to open.

Have a great weekend.

Speak soon xx


  1. I saw your edge on flickr so just had to have a peep and I wasn't disappointed!! I will be back to see your amaryllis.

  2. I couldn't wait to pop over to your blog Kim. This is absolutely gorgeous. You've made a beautiful 'edge'. I can't wait for the Ta - Dah! Colours are beautiful together!
    Have a good weekend.
