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

My next project will have to be this scarf that I stumbled upon. It’s the Queen Anne’s lace scarf pattern and looks divine. The pattern uses basic stitches, so it’s definitely worth giving it a go. I’m completely in love with it. In fact, I might just go start one now…

You can find the free pattern here.

I could spend all day showing you so many more photos of this gorgeous pattern, but I won’t. If you’d like to see more, just google it.

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!
