Flower corner once again

I almost forgot to show you this year's "flower pots" in the ugliest corner of Järvenpää. The local businesses and organizations have used their imagination for the sixth time: in 2017 they used rag rugs, in 2016 chairs, in 2015 bicycles, in 2014  old bags and in the first year, 2013, rubber boots. This year they have attached mail boxes for the flowers in the fence

and added little painted houses.

Today there is a big building site across the street. The old buildings have been torn down but since then nothing has happened. Maybe this side is no longer the ugliest corner after all!

I managed to sew together the 30 knitted squares, one row is hanging on the other side. Somehow I mixed the arrangement and the less striped blocks are not together in the middle like I meant them to be.

I crocheted two rows around the blanket to help keep it in shape.

My next project will be something cooler!


  1. The flower fence has become an annual summer fixture. nice. the blanket looks warm and I like the comforting look that says I am to be used not something to save for special.

  2. the fence is decorated nicely...
    Your Granny Square blanket looks lovely

  3. I love what they do to the ugliest part in town each year! Very colorful and happy.
    The color scheme of you knitted blanket is wonderful! Great add with those nearly solid ones!

  4. Kiva kukka-aita! Kaunis peitto tulossa, ihanat värit ja kuvio!
