Baby blanket WIP

An update on the baby blanket I’m making for a friend. All the squares are now done and joined. I used slip stitches to join the squares (and wouldn’t recommend it! Such a tedious task). I’m just finishing it off now by adding a 3cm border around the edge.

Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf WIP

The scarf pattern isn’t all that tricky, so if you’re considering giving it a go I’d say start now. I’m working with cheap white acrylic yarn from Lincraft, but I think I’ll try it in some of my bamboo yarn later today. Bamboo is just so soft and heavy, I think it would be perfect for this. What I like about this pattern is that it can be thin or chunky, either way works.

Here’s my progress so far:

New blanket in progress

Oh crochet, how I wish I had endless hours for you! But fear not, I’ve almost finished the green and cream baby blanket (photos/post to come), and have already started on my new blanket, which I think I’ll keep for myself so I can tell my kids in years to come that yes, mummy did make that all herself. In the meantime, here’s a quick squiz at what it looks like at 16 squares. The squares are a variation of the baby blanket squares, just a bit smaller, which makes quite a cute little blankie.

16 squares done. Millions more to go!

I’ve just started my first baby blanket for a girl I know. I debated whether to try a funky stitch or pattern, but decided that it would be more statisfying to use granny squares. I found a soft 8 ply in cream and a calming green. Here are the first of the squares. I think I worked out that I need to make 48 in all for a small cot blanket.
