At last, the blue blanket is done just in time for Alice to take it with her to uni. I don't know why it took so long, stitching the squares together seemed to take an age, but I'm pleased with the result.
There was no time left for blocking, but that can be done another time and Alice is pleased with it, which is the main thing.
The blanket is made up of simple crochet grannies and garter stitch knitted squares. (For the flower in the centre of the granny squares I used Kate's tutorial here.)
And finished with a plain double crochet edge and a flowerhouse flower.

On Sunday we went to see the evolving art installation of ceramic poppies in the moat of the Tower of London, which marks the centenary of the outbreak of, and British involvement in, the First World War. The poppies, of which there will be a total of 888,246, will encircle the Tower. Each poppy represents a British military life lost during the First World War.
You can find out more about the Tower of London poppies here.
