Happy Monday readers!
I hope you’ve had a great weekend, it has been productive here! I have told you before about the Lottie and Albert vlog that I watch on Youtube. I’ve had my eyes for a while on her chunky rainbow blanket and I took advantage of a sale at one of our craft store to buy heaps of acrylic yarn for $2 each! Lindsey recommends 6 balls of yarn and I also got myself a 20mm crochet hook before happily starting my blanket!
I loved working on it, it was just super fast! This is a baby size blanket, but you could easily adjust it to make it bigger by starting with a longer chain. I’ve decided to make tassels instead of pompoms too, I love how they turned out.
How cute is it? This is definitely a good size for a baby blanket, but it may be a bit small otherwise, except maybe for a lap blanket (that’s what I’m using it for, as we don’t have a baby 😅)
As promised, here is a picture of the ornament I’ve made for my nana too, I think it turned out great! I had lots of fun making it, so it was a complete win in my books 😊
I hope you all have a great week and that your Christmas preparations are going smoothly too!

Happy Monday my lovely readers!
I hope that you all had a great weekend. I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but at the moment my husband’s family is getting bigger and bigger, and with new babies, I obviously have to make cute baby gifts!
This one is for a soon to be little girl, so I decided to make a softie/blanket. For the head, I used the pattern from Edward’s Imaginarium by Kerry Lord, with the rabbit ears (H4 if you have the book). For the blanket part, I used a free pattern from the Hobbicraft website, the Bernat Star blanket and stopped when I thought the blanket was big enough. All that was left to do was to sew the two together and to add details like the nose and eyes (making sure to secure everything really really well). I really love this softy, it’s super cute and I hope the future parents love it too!

As I mentioned last week, I did start a few new projects over the Easter weekend. I showed you the springtime versatile shawl on Wednesday. Now, I want to show you a baby blanket I’ve started for a baby shower next week. I’ve copied Mrs Craft and used the beautiful shells pattern for this baby blanket. The baby is a little girl (which is super exciting as the future mum already has two boys!) and I hope she will like the girly colours I’ve chosen.
The blanket is a bit bigger than that right now but it’s somewhere in a cardboard. We are finishing to move all our stuff in the new house tomorrow, so I’ll dig it up then and continue working on it. Hopefully it’ll be finished by Sunday next week 🙂
Have a great weekend!

The ripple baby blanket is finished and will be gifted next week! I just did a simple border around to finish it. I used 100% acrylic and it’s super soft, hopefully it will be resistant as well as it gets used.
Have a great weekend!

One of my colleagues is having a baby in March and because we work in a lab she is going on maternity leave soon. I have decided to put my crocheting skills to good use, so I’m making a blanket for her little one. Because she doesn’t know the sex (it’s her first and she doesn’t want to know) I asked for colours she likes and she settled for green.
The yarn is 100% acrylic and it’s super soft. I’ve chosen a ripple pattern and it’s growing pretty fast as I watch TV. Tomorrow is Australia Day so I’ll be doing more of that 🙂
