Ripple baby blanket

Happy Friday! 

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!

New WIP – baby blanket

Happy Wednesday!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

My 2016 crochet projects

crochet2016

Hello crafters!

I’ve been inspired by a few of you to go overย all the projects I’ve finished inย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is to another year filled with craft and keep tuned for the cross stitch finishes on Friday!

Blankets and New Year

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. 

With the leftover yarn, I also made a ripple stitch lapghan for my dad. 


They go so well together and will be lovely for the rest of winter back in France. 


Again have a very happy new year!

Stitch stop and roll afghan – part 2

I love how fast this blanket is working up ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. 


How are your presents coming along?

Snowflake Afghan – finished

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

WIP Wednesday – snowflake blanketย 

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. 


Still in serious need of blocking but I’m getting there ๐Ÿ™‚ 

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. 


What do you guys think? If you have other suggestions I’d be glad to hear them as well ๐Ÿ™‚

In the mean time, happy crocheting everyone!
