the Daisy blanket finished

The finished blanket is made up of 20 Daisy squares. I made 12 squares, but two of those were sent to the pattern designer in payment for using her pattern. Nancy made 12 squares, but two of those were her "practice" squares which weren't to be included in the blanket. After arranging my remaining ten squares and her remaining ten squares for the blanket, we couldn't tell whose was which. It all worked out perfectly. Another point of interest? Even though we were both working with the same eight colours of yarn not one of our squares was the same. Defies the odds, doesn't it?

We bordered each square in black with double crochet then assembled them with single crochet seams. Once the whole thing was together we added a double crochet edging all around. And then we stood back to admire our handiwork. A neighbour popped his head in to say hello, and remarked that we should've entered it at the Simcoe Fall Fair. I don't know about that, but we're really happy with the final result. It's very bright and cheery. Poor Nancy, though. I left it to her to break the bad news to her puppy - he seems to think we made it for him!

This is lovely and colourful. Isn't it amazing; great minds don't always think alike do they?
What a cute little dog.

In response to your question on my blog:

I'm doing Simply Skyp.

I was originally doing Harris Tweed (a waffle rib), but it was getting lost in the fuzziness.
