It has taken months......

My latest crochet project has been a blanket, and it has taken most of the winter to get to a size that I'm happy with. I just can't decide if it needs a border. What do you think? Any ideas? 

This is the first time I've used the "join as you go" method, and I have to say that I'm converted. On those cold winter nights, it was really nice to snuggle under neath, while I worked a new row. 

I think the secret to this method working, is the motif that you choose. I mucked around a bit until I found one that I was happy with. I used the motif  #118 from "Beyond The Square - Crochet Motifs" by Edie Eckman, which was really straight forward.


  1. the colours and I think it is perfect just as it is. Beautiful job!

    1. Thanks Annie. I took the inspiration for the colours from Mr's painting on the wall above the bed. It looks more green than the blanket, but I still think they complement each other.

  2. Oh wow Megan - it's amazing - I too love the colours and I don't think it needs a border at all. Clever you.

  3. This is beautiful! I love the colors!


Thanks so much for commenting. I love hearing from you, and appreciate your input.
