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!
Hello beautiful readers!
I have finished it, my ripple blanket is all done! And it was delivered yesterday night too and my friend loved it 🙂
The fish appliqué I used was the Angel fish from this website and the starfish was from here. The shark and the turtle were freehanded. I did also manage to attach them all without the yarn showing through to the other side, which I was quite proud of.
And here it is! It is actually quite big, probably around 1.2m x 1.5m.
I hope you guys have a great weekend, I know I will as it’s our first wedding anniversary on Sunday and we have planned to go out 🙂
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!
