Yay! the Final Blanket

I have finally finished the border for my Celtic Granny Blanket.

I showed you my plans – https://rainbowjunkiecorner.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/time-for-a-border/

and my start – https://rainbowjunkiecorner.wordpress.com/2020/10/12/the-tricky-bit-of-the-border/

But I finished the interwoven part.

Here is a closer look at a corner corner and then went on to add a granny edging.

Before I show you. I just have to say that one of the reasons it has taken so long is that I did want it perfect and when I went round with the green yarn. I ran out just a few inches before the end because of the yarn being thicker and so having less and using more per inch. I was so annoyed that I ripped the whole round out and went down to a smaller hook. This made sure that I could finish the round with just a little left over.

Here you can see how much I have left.

More pink left. Maybe the yarn was thinner or the ball held more? Not sure.

Here is the whole blanket finally finished.

Had there been more green I might have done a different design but since I only had enough green for one round, I just reversed the colours for one more round each.

Here is a closer look.

I am really pleased and think that the border completes it beautifully. blanket view
