Today I am really just dropping by quickly, Matthew is napping and Emma is momentarily entertained but time is of the essence!
I just wanted to share my latest crochet make now that it has been finished and gifted, before I forget to share it at all! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some of its progress already.
I have recently been made an auntie again to my new gorgeous little nephew Douglas. Of course he needed to have a lovely little crochet blanket 🙂 I am not generally one for pastel shades and happily I think his mum tends to agree so I opted for a bright and bold spectrum of colours just as suitable for a baby boy as any powdery pale blue.
However, I did stick to traditional 4 round granny squares with a wide granny border as far as design goes. This blanket is made using Stylecraft Special DK, of course 😉 The shades are Spring Green, Saffron, Turquoise, Spice and Lipstick. I joined the squares using slip stitches in the back loops only in alternating colours, but I forgot to take any pictures of the reverse side of the blanket, sorry!
