Crochet





This turned into this!


The cot blanket I crocheted for my friend Karen and gave to her at work yesterday at her baby shower.  It is her first child and so I made the cover a generous size in order that she can snuggle in it when nursing or baby can lay on it or under it.  It is lovely and soft.  I believe in lovely comfortable things make you feel snug and secure.



I have equally being me started another blanket well the centres of to say the least.  So far I have made 50 small centres in a lovely marled wool this one is for my bedroom as it has all the colours I like. Ice cream colours.  The wool is from Wilkinsons and £1.35 per ball and you get approximately 8 squares give or take a bit and depending on your tension per ball (just the marled wool).  The outer edge is going to be worked in cream wool.  






The inspiration came from The Patchwork Heart a favourite crochet blog as she has such lovely designs and such a good eye for colour.  You can find the blanket instructions with photos here (but I can guarantee you will find lots of lovely other projects as well).  Here is the link:

    1. Hi mumsu

      My friend was well pleased with the blanket and could not get over the fact that I had made her something. Still hard at work on the new one working all the centres first but still have to work the cream outers, Quite a few more to go yet.

      Take care
