900g of various shades of red double knitting yarn, 5mm hook and 3 months of work (and procrastination!) I have finally finished the blanket that my Auntie asked my Mum to ask me to make for her  Roll Eyes
I tried ELEVEN different patterns before just going with the flow and making this one. It is front post & back post double crochet stitches. It is lovely and thick and warm - which is what she needs for when she is riding through the park on her mobility scooter  Smiley I get to give it to Auntie Maggie at the Xmas party tomorrow  Grin just finished in the nick of time!

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

Oh I know she will love it.  It is beautiful...looks really soft and warm.  The texture of the front and back post stitches is sooo luxurious looking.
