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.
I’ve been inspired by a few of you to go over all the projects I’ve finished in 2016. I’ll divide it in two parts, today for crochet and Friday for cross stitch.
In total, last year, I have finished 29 crochet projects, including 7 amigurumi, 5 blankets, 3 shawls, 2 baskets, 2 pairs of earrings, 2 doilies, 2 dice bags, 1 tea cosy, 1 beanie, 1 pair of slippers, 1 jumper, 1 cowl and 1 crochet case.
Even though some of these projects are quite small, I’m actually pretty impressed with how much stuff I’ve made this year 🙂 Here is to another year filled with craft and keep tuned for the cross stitch finishes on Friday!
Happy New Year guys!
I hope you all had great holidays and that you had fun times with your loved ones.
I had a great week with my mum and I finished the stitch stop and roll blanket for her.
I love how fast this blanket is working up 🙂 I am now making the three half hexagons at the same time as the other hexagons just to keep it simple for me with the colour changes.
I am now up to row 7 out of 19. My mum arrives on the 27th of December and leaves on the 2nd of January, so I have until then to finish this, so that she can bring it back home.
It is finally done!
After a few years of putting it off, I have finally finished the snowflake afghan! I’ve named it like that because of its colours, it reminds me of cold and snow (not that we have much of that here in Brisbane).
I love the straight edges, so thanks so much for everyone who suggested it 🙂
I know, I know, I should really finish this but I just wanted to show you the edging I was thinking of doing for this blanket.
First off, I have finished all the hexagons and half hexagons I need. I really love the straight side edges and I’m so glad I went with it.
So I looked into my knitting and crochet bible (this book is just so great!) and I found an edging that I think will go great with the general feel of the blanket.
In the mean time, happy crocheting everyone!
Today is our final week in the LOTR crochet along! I kept the best for last (in my opinion): Legolas! I bet it’s most people favourite elf 🙂 He is pretty kickass in both the LOTR trilogy and in the Hobbit trilogy.
Without further ado, here is the graph for Legolas.
Have a lovely week!
Second last week of our LOTR crochet along! whoop-whoop!
This is the last corner square and you have the choice between Arwen’s pendant and the tree of Gondor!
