Daisy Granny Blanket

Good morning and Happy Valentines Day to you all.  A Ta dah moment for you today.  I have finished my Plain Granny Blanket, but I just couldn't call it "plain"  - I have loved making this blanket, it has worked up quickly, not much messing with sewing in ends. I worked out the design on paper first and was then able to join-as-you-go which made it even quicker. I love the simplicity of it.  It is going to live in our camper to match the cushions I made last year.  I have added some Daisies which I have made with my Daisy Maker and hey presto! a plain blanket no more!

I made this with a mixture of Bonus UK and Robin double knitting.  I find these two acrylics are the same thickness, some aren't quite the same even though they are double knit.

These are the cushions I made last year and as you can see, I have tried to pick out the colours of our camper.  I think they are all going to live nicely together!

Thank you for dropping by!

Speak soon xx 


  1. Lovely colours to make a very beautiful blanket and cushions. I love them.


  2. Your blanket is lovely Kim and the little daisies are a really nice finishing touch. I'm sure it will look great in your camper ~ nice and cozy! :O)xx

  3. Fab-u-lous. I think it's simply great that you didn't put a daisy in every square. Now they stand out so much more. What's up next?

    Toot Sweet,

  4. They certainly will. It looks so warm and snuggly. You are right not all DK are the same thickness, I find some really thin which I don't like but then I don't like it when they border on chunky either :)

  5. Kimbles, this is beautiful!!!
    I love the daisies, I think they finish it off beautifully.
    The colours are superb, and you match perfectly with the cushions.

    Question is Kimbles....how are your hands now you are finished? Take care now.

    I think its gorgeous, well done.
    Hugs Suex

  6. Oh lovely Kim! I especially like the solid colours and the daisies really set it off.Now it just has to get warm enough for you to go off in your camper.

  7. Lovely work Kim - it will look wonderful in the camper and I'm sure it will come in handy

  8. Happy Birthday to you!
