December in crochet

It was a busy month and unfortunately, looking back, I seemed to take very few pictures of the sky. Maybe because it was so miserable and I didn't want permanent pictures of the grey?!

Having said that, there were some beautiful sunrises this month.....




...and the most perfect, glorious sunny morning which happened to conincide with Mr f&f and I having a night away in a hotel over-looking the Thames. Talk about good timing and fantastic views!

...and towards the end of the month quite a lot of this...


I even started on all those pesky ends and the blanket is starting to look all neat...


The last seven days of December will be forming the border for my blanket and with the exception of Christmas Day which was blue with clouds, it's going to be six rows of grey. I was so hoping for a little bit of blue to make it nice and bright but no, the weather just didn't want to play. Here's the blanket up til Christmas Eve.....

This afternoon I dug out the other half of the sky blanket, laid them next to each other and do you know what? They matched perfectly! I literally whooped and did a little jig in the kitchen (much to Mr f&f's amusement!)

I can't wait to join it all together! That's tonight sorted then....and then onto that border.

See you all soon,

Lovely sunsets and I love that Sky Blanket. You should do a sunset version next.

I am so impressed with this! It looks great with both pieces laid out together, good luck with the joining.

That's such a great idea although I think I might need a little bit of a rest after finishing this off! Sx
