{Instagram} April Favourites from my feed

crochet heart granny squareApril on my Instagram account featured a lot of crochet granny squares and for a good reason. Life has recently thrown our family a curve ball as my daughter’s scoliosis has reached a level that will require spinal surgery later this month. I have been madly making granny squares to finish my Random Granny Square Blanket so she will have something cosy and handmade to comfort her in hospital.  While the fear of trusting a stranger to perform surgery on my daughter has been overwhelming at times, i still feel incredibly grateful for the health and happiness that all of my children exude. We never take that for granted.

I also spent some time in April just staring into the wide countryside that surrounds our home. Autumn is a magical time of the year, both at home and in Millthorpe. The pre sunset glow of golden hour makes everything feel okay again.

{Crochet} Candy Granny Square Blanket with Pom Poms

Just a little quicky post to share my finished colourful crochet Candy Granny Square blanket. This was such a fun and easy project to work on. I didn’t use a pattern, it just evolved and grew until i was happy with the size. The colours were added randomly with little breaks of white to add freshness. This crochet lap blanket was made with Patons Cotton Blend yarn which was beautiful to work with. I added some pom poms (see my Easy Pom Pom Tutorial ) on each of the corners to finish it off. So much happiness in one blanket!!
