Granny Stripes blanket

I've started my first granny stripes blanket following a pattern by the amazing Lucy at Attic 24 . I am using it as a stash buster and the resulting blanket will go to Greenfields Africa to wrap a new baby. With only two rows of each colour at a time I can use up lots of odds and ends. I cast on 132 ch to start.

I have also made a hat (95g) and a pair of baby bootees (20g) (photo below, fab easy pattern here ) to get this month's stash busting on the go.

Yarn at start of year: 31,034g
Yarn gained: 450g
Yarn busted: 1164g
Yarn given away: 100g
Yarn in stash: 30,220g


  1. The blanket looks lovely and squishy. I think I could attempt this one day.

  2. Cute bootees Julia, and I love the colours in the blanket, something satisfying about doing granny strips don't you think. :)

  3. Your progress has been amazing! I am sure this new blanket will look wonderful and colorful. I just love granny stripes...

  4. blanket is beautiful
