today I have something special for you. The very first granny square blanket of my life. Made by an actual granny - mine. I thought it was lost because I haven't seen it for years. The granny who made this and me never had a proper granny-grandchild relationship (unlike me and my beloved granny who sadly died 10 years ago in a car accident) but this piece of crochet makes me realise that although she has a hard time showing her feelings, she was ever so excited about meeting me, her very first grandchild. This one was made in the early eighties.
These two squares are woven somehow and I really have to figure out how to do this, because I always liked them the most. The look fragile somehow, which looks ever so nice.
These are lovely and should be simple enough to copy, don't you think? Somehow they remind me of the Pril Flowers... but I think that is a German thing ;-)
Unfortunately my baby blanket isn't in a very good state. But I'm determined to mend it, because I have a lot of memories attached to this one. It was my first piece of decoration in my first room (before the age of 11 I had to share a room with my brother) and kept my dolls warm before...
I hope you did enjoy my real granny square blanket as much as I do. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I will be able to mend it!
