I've been advised to post here for traffic My dm recently gave be a very long crocheted blanket. It was crocheted by my dgm in the 70s as part of her rehabilitation following a stroke. I have very strong memories of her and her carer making it. My job was to sit quietly on the floor and hold the wool. I was about 4
The blanket is too long and a bit too scratchy to use as it is, but it is beautiful. I'm not crafty at all. I wouldn't dream of trying to do anything to it myself as i would spoil it for sure. I would love someone to make it smaller and add a soft back so i can use it as a blanket for my 8month old dd. I would be very happy to make a donation (agreed charity) and donate the remaining squares to woolly hugs If anyone Is interested? ? My dgm was an amazing lady and put so much determination and care into each square, it seems a shame to leave it in a drawer for another 40 years. Thanks Rosie
I've knitted/crocheted blankets for both my boys and backed them with minky/plush from plushaddict. it was so easy as plush doesn't fray. I cut it the same size as the blanket and sewed it on using normal thread. Really easy, promise! Good luck.
