Once again Daphne wowed us with another of her magnificent blankets. We were relieved to hear that Daphne doesn't whip these up between meetings, but have been knitted over a few years. The one Daphne showed us today was made for her brother-in-law. It has a multi-coloured yarn that is used in each square to create a constant theme. Each square starts with the striped triangle, using the multi-coloured yarn plus two other colours. The second half of the square is made by working two smaller triangles in the two other colours that were used in the stripes. The squares were then crocheted together with the smaller triangles meeting to make a diamond and the larger striped triangles also forming diamonds. Daphne finished the blanket with a crocheted edging, using the multi-coloured yarn, and this blanket also features a "pocket" on the reverse side that the blanket gets folded into.
Daphne has also been busy knitting hats for Christmas presents.
