Over the last year, I’ve developed a habit of blanket spotting in TV programmes and films. They can be tucked away in the background but I always spot them. This usually results in me pointing and shouting “crochet blanket!” at the TV.
I don’t watch many TV shows but I catch the odd episode of the BBC series, Call the Midwife. In Sunday’s episode (series 2, episode 8) the midwives and nuns were blanket making…a crochet blanket to be precise. I didn’t even have to scout this one out because it was a central part of the story. I thought it was a rather nice blanket. Here it is:
On a side note, they appeared to be making crochet granny squares with knitting needles (rather than a crochet hook). This blanket is a crochet blanket not a knitted blanket. Perhaps this little detail was overlooked 🙂 Not that important really, the blanket is still great! Hopefully it will inspire lots of people to make crochet granny blankets for their homes.
