Grey Blanket - Finished

Hooray! It's finished - tick it off the list and start something new.  Here's my grey blanket.

With the end in sight, I've been crocheting away like mad the last few days and it's a good feeling to look at the finished article.

It measures 50 inches square and I used double knitting weight yarn throughout.  The little squares are based on the Never Fading Flowers pattern, which is available as a free Ravelry download, here.  I must admit that I went wrong on the second round of the pattern, which is silly really as I have used this pattern before, for Eve's blanket.  Having completed a number of squares incorrectly, I decided to carry on regardless and so long as I'm consistent, what does it matter.

After completing the little squares the rest of the blanket was very much a case of making it up as I went along and I'm very pleased with the way the border turned out.

I don't know what I'm going to do with the blanket now it's finished, my husband has helpfully pointed out that we have enough blankets already - but one more won't hurt!  I always think crochet blankets look lovely folded and piled up together - they make everything so homely.
