Welcome to my blog I am a mum and owner of Nanny Cheryl Original.s. It began when I had to take early retirement due to ill health, I was so bored, I couldn’t get around much but I loved crafts and started my knitting, crochet, sewing, painting and designing again in earnest. I love to look at pictures or clothing that I have seen around and get going on making a pattern in my head and work with it until I have a finished project. Well I normally have about 3 or 4 projects on a one go.
I love crochet Blankets which was my first project a shawl for my son because I could not afford to buy one, back then wool was fairly cheap and so I made my first baby shawl. I later began traditional blankets such as the following beginning with squares
These can be made to any size or colour pattern then add a border first I added black and the results are below.
I love bright colours and found that a black background really makes them stand out also you can buy odd balls left overs of florescent colours to help with the costs. I also wanted to make a few blankets with lighter borders for children. as seen below
To experiment further I would add different colours for borders
It seems the more blankets you make you are always looking for another design as you can see from the following I mixed the bright colours, different borders and designs I am still looking and trying new one and still designing my own, I haven’t got to putting pen to paper yet but I will.
I hope you have enjoyed my examples and plan to make your own variations.
