One A Day project ... TaDah!

What a happy day once again! Another TaDah post in such a short time. I think I am on a roll with my crocheting. I finished my autumn throw well in time for the season to begin...


I created a granny stripe border of three rows of dark brown followed by a row of heather. I then did another row of dark brown and used this simple double V edging. It came up really nicely but...


...it needs blocking which I will have to do with a low temperature iron when I get home. I am at Cranberry Cottage today so unable to do that although I wanted to show you the overall effect. Until I can block it, it has a little wonky look when laid out on the floor.


I am really amazed at how fast this throw went. I have little bits of yarn left which I am making an autumn leaf garland with. It is nice to use just about every inch of the yarn. *grins*

  1. I really like the way you ended this one.
    It looks really good for the cottage, so you should probably just leave it there and forget about blocking it. It will hang out in time.
    The cottage will say, you finished it here, so leave it here now. lol
    Glad you are enjoying your time there.
    Love you, Mom

  9. Heidi, this is a wonderful throw! The way you've sewn the blocks together and the colors you've chosen just works so well. I'm sure you'll enjoy many evenings snuggled under your new throw.
