Ta da! My Springfrost blanket is finished. There are 7 border rows and I love the final white one.

The top photo depicts the true colours. I couldn't straighten the blanket out for the floor pic but you get the idea.

My 3 year old grandson wants a green crocheted blanket. I made a blue one for his older brother when he was about 2 and a half years old. The extra green yarns I ordered from the UK arrived a couple of days ago but I forgot to order an off white one to add amongst the greens.

One is more blue than I thought so I shall put it in my stash. Now I have the tiresome task of working out what sequence the greens should be in. I have a whitish ball of yarn to add but it may be a bit stark.

Maybe I will put the yarn aside for a while and finish the last needle turn block for my UFO quilt.

I couldn't do much yesterday due to a migraine and it has been a bad week with my FMS, sleeplessness and industrial type noise all around us with constant building still going on. Today is a bit quieter apart from some hammering  so I am resting up while I can. 

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.


  1. Ugh! I hope the migraine eased. Your blanket looks lovely Lucy does have an eye for colour. Have fun with your greens once you get them going.

  2. the blanket is lovely... I do like the yarn they use - it always hangs so nicely. Have fun with the greens - hope you are feeling better this weekend....xx

  3. It's a beautiful finish Ondrea. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs Christine xx

  4. What a beautiful blanket, Ondrea. Yes, finish your UFO as it really sounds as though you’re not completely happy with your green blanket colours yet. Maybe I have a green in my stash for you??
    Take care of yourself, lovely friend. 💓🌷🌷🌷

  5. Well done on the finish, it looks lovely. Sort the wool when you are more in the mood! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  6. Congrats on getting Springfrost pretty.
