Our own little one…

30 Oct

Whilst I am planning a baby blanket as a gift, I’m also preparing for the arrival of our little one!
She is due on 28th November, so 4 weeks and a day to go!




A couple of weeks ago, my lovely friends and sister threw me a fantastic baby shower where we received gorgeous gifts and the cutest baby biscuits!






The whole day was so lovely and topped off by a beautiful double rainbow.



Baby blanket planning

30 Oct

Today I’ve been ordering the yarn for a baby blanket for my lovely friend who is due next February, very exciting! I’ve gone for neutrals, yellows and blues as she’s having a boy but she doesn’t want to be too blue!

Once again, I’ve ordered from the Wool Warehouse as it’s such good value and local. I’m very excited for its arrival so I can get started…

Mini make made!

20 Aug

Last night I made this sweet little hat…



I altered the original pattern a little as I used thicker wool and a larger hook (4.5mm). Instead of doing 6 rounds of US dc (UK treble) all around, I changed this to 4 rounds of US dc all around.

I then did one round of UK htr in yellow at the base of the hat. To finish, I used 5 strands of yellow and blue and tied this to the top of the hat to make the cute little tuft.

This was so simple and quick to make (less than an hour) and turned out beautifully.


A mini make

I just found this super-cute pattern at sennaloves for a crochet baby hat…


I think it will have to be a mini make before finishing my big blanket.
